If there’s one thing that the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us, it’s that now more than ever, wellness in the workplace needs to a priority for employers.
This pandemic has shifted almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives from outside the home to inside — from work to exercise and everything in between, and as a result, individuals are focusing on their personal wellbeing more than ever before.
The Choosi Choices Report recently examined how people make decisions and found that many Australians are now putting health at the top of their priorities, with 27.2 per cent saying that COVID-19 has had an impact on this decision.
With the closure of gyms and outdoor workout equipment, Australian’s are relying on videos and apps to get their exercise. Tasked with maintaining health and wellbeing efforts that are centred around the home, some are able to sustain their usual eating and workout regimes, whilst many are finding it difficult to stay motivated.
It’s undoubtedly difficult for people to feel inspired and supported to achieve their goals whilst under these circumstances, but with the right strategy it doesn’t have to be.
Working from home is a reality that we all need to keep adjusting to. As such, it is imperative that organisations devise an effective workplace wellness strategy, to help counteract the negative impacts of COVID-19.
Employers have a responsibility to ensure their employees are prioritising their wellness in a wholistic manner. Taking a 360 approach to wellness is the key to unlocking the many benefits that a healthy lifestyle has to offer, for both organisations and employees alike.
With the right workplace wellness strategy, organisations can successfully incentivise their workforce to stay fit and healthy, and through the implementation of a scalable workplace wellness solution, organisations can provide their employees with the tools, encouragement and support needed to assist them wherever they may be on their wellness journey.
