Happy Employees Produce More!
As a business owner, if there is one thing you can credit to the success of your business, it’s your great team of employees. Without the help of your staff, getting to where you are today would probably be a lot more challenging. With that being said, ensuring that your employees are satisfied requires more than a decent salary and benefits package (though this helps), it’s also about caring for them as human beings.
When your employees are not healthy (mentally and physically), it causes the quality of their work to deteriorate, which in turn results in decreased productivity in the workplace. While this doesn’t mean that you have to play doctor every day, it does mean incorporating wellness programs and health advice into the work day to ensure that they’re informed and performing at their best.
One simple way to start caring for the health of your staff is simply by allowing them to…stand up. Healthydesks.com offers standing desk options which promote employee health and safety. The site also provides an in-depth understanding of the symptoms and effects of sitting too much that could be informative for your staff to read.
You might also take notice of the infographic below. In simply allowing your employees to stand up and walk around during some points throughout the day, you can decrease their chances of blood clots, heart attacks, and much more. By taking small strides to improve the well-being of your staff, you can make a big difference in workplace productivity – which is definitely a win-win deal.
