Simple & Affordable Options to Keep Employees Healthy
Whether large or small, employers can offer benefits to employees to keep them healthy. Here are a few ideas that can work for your organization.
Encourage annual flu shots. Studies show that the cost of offering free shots is far outweighed by the savings realized through reductions in both absenteeism and presenteeism.
Well-designed employee assistance programs offering counseling services for employees and their families deliver a solid return on investment.
The COVID pandemic has driven home the importance of mental health counseling in many forms - grief counselors, virtual consultations, and other options. Explore the options for your organization.
Health risk assessments for conditions such as high blood pressure can address current and future health problems when coupled with medical advice.
Wellness programs promoting healthy practices such as exercise and nutrition can have a direct impact on the bottom line by reducing sick days and the effects of presenteeism.
Telemedicine has also come into its own as a result of the pandemic. Offering the service as part of employee benefits give staff access to convenient and affordable medical care to help make better decisions about staying home or going to work.
Policies that offer sick days, discourage the attitudes that support presenteeism, and leadership that sets examples of healthy practices all have a direct impact on keeping staff healthier.
The Healthy Hospitality™ training program is just one building block for a smart organizational approach to improving health and reducing the spread of disease. Used in conjunction with these ideas and others, your organization can set the example for smart business and good health.
