The only way a company can maximize the well being of its employees is through creating a culture that promotes this. Here are some points to think about if you are trying to change your culture so you can maintain and sustain, well and happy employees.
- Make wellness a top priority and part of your corporate mission. When management values wellness it trickles down.
- Make moving, healthy food, and socialization around food part the culture and the norm.
- Communicate, train, reward, model and provide resources that promote wellness throughout the organization.
- Train peers to help each other out when the tough times hit.
- Create a climate where there is a positive outlook, shared vision and sense of community across all levels.
