Workplace Wellness not limited to Physical Health

Workplace Wellness not limited to Physical Health

Employer-provided wellness is no longer the exception, it’s the rule.  A study by the Society for Human Resource Management found that about three-quarters (76%) of respondents indicated their organization offered some type of a wellness program, resource or service to employees. And more than two-thirds of them indicated these initiatives were “somewhat effective” or “very effective” in reducing the costs of health care in 2014 (72%), 2013 (71%) and 2012 (68%).

Today’s employees want more than Weight Watchers.  Wellbeing initiatives are evolving to support employees as a whole person, with attention on stress reduction, personal growth and self-awareness, and physical health.  And modern wellness programs can do more than trim waistlines and health care costs – they can be an integral part of your company culture and your employer brand.

Have FUN For Lunch Inc. is at the leading edge of this trend, with over a third of its course offerings and presentations geared toward personal growth, stress management, and nutrition topics.  In addition, learning new skills and participating in creative expression are also important to the wellbeing of the whole person.  That’s why Have FUN For Lunch offers activities such as sketching, smartphone photography, and beginner language and dance classes.

When employees get up from their desks to take part in these types of activities, stress and healthcare costs are lowered, creativity and productivity are increased, and employee morale and loyalty are enhanced.  Have FUN For Lunch Inc. is the natural choice for taking your workplace wellness initiatives to the next level.
