6 reasons why you should promote healthiness in the workplace

“If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your clients” – Richard Branson.

 

Employees are the most important piece of the puzzle (assuming, of course, the puzzle is a company). That’s why business owners and managers should worry about their collaborator’s wellbeing. Health reflects on productiveness. So if you want your employees to do better at the workplace, you should be encouraging them to carry a healthier lifestyle.

In 2016, the Mexican government declared an epidemic alert because of the high prevalence of obesity and overweight problems on 72% of the population.

To prevent the growth of this percentage, it’s important that companies start promoting healthy diets and exercise among their employees. Here are some reasons to start doing it:

Fewer sick days: People who follow healthy diets and work out tend to have a stronger immune system, which translates in less diseases.

 

Less stress: Exercise releases tension of our bodies. This is great for maintaining low levels of stress not only in the workplace, but also on a personal level.

 

More energy: Fit people have more energy throughout the day. This makes employees more focused and efficient.

 

Discipline: Those who follow diets or exercise routines are very disciplined, which is necessary in the workplace in order to get the job done.

 

Ambition: Fit people often set and reach goals when it comes to exercise. This kind of ambition is also relevant with professionals goals.

 

Genuine concern: Proposing a healthier lifestyle among collaborators shows a genuine concern. This will make employees feel better at the company and will resonate on their performance.
