Work has changed profoundly in the past year. Employees are working in different ways, with new tools, needs, and demands, and at full capacity; but although it has changed, people haven’t. It has become increasingly difficult for employees to keep themselves physically and mentally healthy while maintaining the quality of their work. In fact, 78% of employees miss work due to work-related stress making 52% engage in unhealthy binges. Despite this, 30% of employees work in companies with no mental health resources. It's due time to implement Employee Wellness Programs the right way.
It’s very common for people to neglect their physical and mental well-being because of the demand of a fast-paced environment. And it’s also very common for companies to forget about the impact of having these sorts of initiatives.
Does your company proactively offer physical or mental health activities? Some of the biggest companies in the world realize how it can drive engagement and productivity, but these programs shouldn’t belong only to the largest enterprises. With Sprout’s Employee Wellness Programs, you can bring the benefits of a wellness program into your workplace so your employees can benefit from them regardless of their location.
Sprout loves providing its clients and employees with virtual wellness webinars, meditation and yoga sessions, and one-on-one consultations that help reduce stress levels and improve concentration. We promote wellbeing within the workplace by providing benefits to the employees, and not just because of DOLE’s Mental Health Act.
Part of Sprout’s advocacy for mental health is spreading awareness about these sorts of programs and how they can help companies bring out the best in their employees. With that in mind, we’d like to invite anyone reading this to join a three-day celebration of Mental Health Month with CPPS, one of our partners in Wellness.
