In my last blog, I addressed the benefits to companies that have a wellness program. They offer a way for employees to become engaged in improving their health, resulting in more productive employees, less absenteeism and higher overall morale.
If you are thinking about implementing a wellness plan in your company, we encourage you to take a holistic approach. Although physical well-being is of utmost importance, true well-being doesn’t occur until other needs are met as well. Although Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs was developed over 70 years ago, human development has not changed significantly since then to warrant a substantial rewrite! We still need to have our basic needs met before we can develop to our greatest potential. At WA Insurance Group, we encourage employers to include these five elements in their wellness program, Career, Social, Financial, Physical and Community.
Look for more information about each of these elements in the coming weeks.
A Very Happy and Prosperous New Year to all!
