Last week at Crestline, we celebrated a whole week of fun and wellness! The week was full of company wide events, healthy lunches and opportunities to learn about wellness. Some of our events included a 5k walk or run, a softball game, and other indoor events. We also had a wellness fair where employees were exposed to all of the great local health resources that exist within our community. Not only was the whole week a great time, it was also a great opportunity for associates to interact with others in different departments throughout the company, something we don’t always get the opportunity to do!
Encouraging health and wellness in the workplace is something that can often be overlooked. At Crestline, we make it a point to put an emphasis on healthy practices so that our employees take it seriously and want to incorporate these practices into everyday life. We are always looking for more opportunities to encourage wellness and to support our staff in their health and wellness endeavors.
Why is this so important to us? We love serving our customers as efficiently and effectively as possible. A healthy workforce makes efficiency, productivity, and profitability possible. Not only is this great for us, but it is great for our customers too!
There are many benefits to implementing healthy practices in the workplace outside of productivity and efficiency. Promoting and organizing opportunities for employees to be healthy can also lead to increased self-esteem and self-determination that will not only influence them, but their families and those around them as well. In addition, providing opportunities for wellness can lead to stronger employee relationships in the work place.
Here are a few products you can give to your employees to get them excited about health and wellness at work!
