The benefits of a Corporate Wellness program at your workplace
In today’s day and age we are seeing chronic disease on the rise, an increase in sedentary workplaces and demanding roles add to life’s stress at home.
We, at The Chiropractic Works are passionate and determined to foster a change in culture, to live a healthier life where there are options for employees, empowering them to make decisions that will be benefit their immediate health and for the long-term.
Some of the benefits of incorporating a wellness program into business is to improve morale amongst employees, reduce medical expenses for both the individual and the business, reduce the number of sick days and improve productivity.
The integration into the workplace requires the flexibility for each employee to make their own choice in what works best for them. To help get you started with empowering your employees with choice, here are some ideas;
1. Encouraging the use of apps in the work place.
When we talk Apps, we don’t mean snapchat or instagram but we encourage the use of health apps or devices to measure activity. This can create a bit of competition within the workplace, keep your team engaged and have the added benefit of overall health.
2. Create challenges
Monthly themes or challenges to engage interest of employees, Active April, Steptember, March Movers etc. Jogging January. (jump rope January) The health apps can also help with implementing these challenges
3. Health Screenings
Inviting medical practitioners into the work place to carry out non-invasive health screenings to encourage your team to take care of their health without having to find the time to do so.
Corporate wellness is more than just management of physical conditions, diabetes heart disease and musculoskeletal complaints.
At The Chiropractic Works, we are also aware and concerned about the impact the mental state of and employee can have in the workforce as mental illness can be a contributor to sick leave and reduced productivity at work.
This is evident when we look at the 3 areas that contribute our health;
- Chemical Street

- Physical Stress
With these three tips to encourage health and well-being in the work place, we also want to share with you how we can help with our Corporate Wellness Program.
