Every year, millions of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. Of those, 45 percent want to lose weight or get in shape. Helping employees take care of themselves can help your bottom line. A recent report showed that every dollar spent on workplace wellness programs had a $3.48 return on investment.
So with a new year just around the corner, now is the perfect time to offer a wellness program. Encourage your employees to get moving with in-office classes, a company walking path, a fitness challenge and a variety of wellness giveaways.
You can award points for hitting wellness goals or hold a prize drawing for participants to encourage your employees to get moving. Be sure to include some wellness giveaway ideas to motivate them.
Studies show that walking can improve creativity, aid in weight loss and increase longevity. If a walking program is on your wellness agenda, check out the Lycra Running Belt.
Available in five fun colors, it has a large zippered front pocket to carry essential items when on the move. It also has a built-in slot for earbuds. Sleeker than a classic fanny pack, the waist strap adjusts all the way up to a 41-inch waist size.
