Global Employee Health & Fitness Month encourages employers to motivate employees to adopt healthy, active lifestyles. Here are some steps you can take to support your employees.
Lack of time is one of the biggest reasons for not eating healthy or getting enough exercise. But how do people who spend a large part of their day working find time for health and fitness? The answer: It starts at work.
Global Employee Health & Fitness Month (GEHFM), observed in May, encourages employers to motivate employees to adopt healthy, active lifestyles. While the decision to live a healthy lifestyle is an individual choice, the larger implications for the workplace include happier, more engaged employees, lower rates of absenteeism, and improved productivity.
Here are some simple things you can do as an employer to help create a healthy workplace.
Whatever you do to observe GEHFM, keep in mind that healthy choices take time to develop into lasting habits. This month and throughout the year, take steps to make health and well-being part of every workday.
