Conventional worksite wellness programs do not encompass all dimensions that make up employee well-being. They are heavy on pushing employees to exercise and eat right, even though research indicates that an individual’s career well-being has the greatest impact. When employees are thriving across all six dimensions of well-being, research tells us they are not only happier at work and more productive, but also experience up to 40% lower health care costs compared to employees who are only thriving in two dimensions or less. Sanford Health Plan does offer services like Lifestyle Medicine Coaching.
Look for ways to have all dimensions of wellness:
-Opportunities to give back or volunteer
-Social time and and positive interactions
-Support for financial wellness through education and counseling
-Stress relief resources and recognizing burnout
-Employee connection to the organization and day-to-day work purpose
-A healthy environment that supports healthy foods and physical activity during the workday
