How do you ensure your employees feel happy and healthy at work?
By introducing some wellness to the workplace.
Research by the Irish Business and Employers Confederation (Ibec) last year showed that six out of 10 employees were more likely to stay long-term with an employer that showed concern for them, while almost half of the 1,000 employees surveyed said they would leave a job where an employer did not care about their well-being.
Recognising potential health and well-being issues in the workplace and addressing them before they become a serious problem is essential. This is why it is so important to create an environment where employees feel confident and secure.
Cork’s businesses are introducing corporate wellness programs to their employees with great success. Whether it’s a traditional yoga practice or a blend of chair yoga, mindfulness and meditation, employees report feeling calmer, less stressed, more flexible and tension free.
Benefits of corporate yoga:
- Reduced stress, anxiety & depression
- Increased energy and decreased fatigue
- Improved memory, focus and concentration
- Stronger muscles and increased flexibility
- Improved posture
- Improved overall health and reduced risk for diseases
