5 Ways to Keep Your Employees Healthy

Employees eating a healthy lunch together
One of the most efficient ways to get work done at your company is to keep your employees healthy and happy. If your employees aren’t healthy that means more sick days are taken and as a result less productivity. So how do you keep your employees healthy all year? Here are 5 ways to keep your employees healthy throughout the year.

  1. Encourage Exercise
  2. Of course, you can’t force your employees to exercise. What they do with their time off of work is their own. But there are ways to encourage your employees to exercise.

    • Download a weight loss app and make a goal to lose a combination of weight between your employees
    • Install software on the computer to remind employees to stretch
    • Offer gym membership discounts
    • Provide free nicotine patches for employees to help them stop smoking
    • If you have the space, provide workout machines and weights for employees to use on their lunch breaks

    All of these things can help encourage and motivate employees to exercise on a regular basis.

  3. Offer Healthy Eating Options
  4. Do you stock your work kitchen with snacks? Most work places do. It’s not as convenient, but getting healthy options for employees to snack on can help them little by little to eat healthier. Here are some things you can stock your kitchen with:

    • Baby carrots
    • Snap peas
    • Bananas
    • Apples
    • Dark chocolate
    • Nuts
    • Granola
    • Dried fruit
    • Protein bars
    • Nut butter

  5. Encourage Vaccines
  6. The flu takes thousands of people out of work every year. By encouraging your employees to get the flu vaccine, you can reduce the number of people getting sick from the flu.

  7. Provide Safe Bike Parking
  8. Does your office have a safe and convenient place to park bikes? If you create a safe place for employees to park their bikes, it will help encourage employees to bike to work instead of drive. You could even designate a specific day, week, or month for everyone to bike to work.

  9. Start Your Day With Yoga
  10. If you have any yogis in your office, have them lead a yoga class every morning. Just 20 minutes of yoga can reduce stress and increase productivity.
