Just as individuals have varied goals, so do companies. Supporting the health and wellness of employees should be one of those goals. Through workplace wellness initiatives companies invest in their greatest asset: their people. Research points to many benefits for company and employee alike, including, but not limited to: improved productivity, decreased absenteeism, positive behavior change, and reduced health care cost. What’s more, through such investments, companies cultivate an environment of reciprocal growth, achievement, and connectedness. 

WTN’s WELLcommunity Workplace programs are customizable and designed to help your people MEET their wellness goals.

MOTIVATION: “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” ~Jim Ryun 

Slowly, as we change our behavior, it becomes us. Still, it takes an effort to shape our habits. So how can you translate motivation to practice? 

A WELLcommunity Workplace encourages a growth mindset. Maintaining motivation, comes with a willingness to learn from our mistakes. WE use SMART goals that are Specific, Measureable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-based. Short term benchmarks offer opportunities to check-in and make adjustments as needed, while the connectedness of a group provides support and inspiration. 

EATING: “A healthy outside starts from the inside.” ~Robert Urich 

What comes to mind when you hear “diet”? For many, it conjures calorie counting and restriction. The exact definition of diet: “food and drink considered in terms of its qualities, composition, and its effects on health.” We all consume a diet, whether or not it has a name. Well Together Now challenges you to reframe your thinking. Instead of the negative connotations associated with the word “diet,” choose positive associations of mindfulness and sustainability when it comes to food.  

WTN promotes a healthy balance. Eating well is not about deprivation or perfection; it is about improving overall diet quality. Through education, WELLcommunity Workplace programs shape nutritional habits and increase knowledge and confidence in this area.

EXERCISE: “It is remarkable how one’s wits are sharpened by physical exercise.” ~Pliny the Younger

Exercise is not one size fits all. However, it is necessary to include physical activity as part of a wellness plan. WELLcommunity Workplace offers group-based classes tailored to the goals and fitness level of your team. Coach Dawn is a certified personal trainer and run coach. She has experience leading small and large groups in strength training and incorporating activities to increase cardiovascular fitness. The group design offers camaraderie and accountability.

TIME: “The key is in not spending time, but investing in it.” ~Stephen R. Covey

Time is a valuable asset. We all get the same 24 hours in a day. Health is always a worthy investment. WELLcommunity Workplace programs maximize time. Through education, goal setting, and activity, our programs provide structure and instill ownership. Improvements in overall wellness result in increased energy and focus. 

When a company preserves time for employee wellness, they make a statement about values and priorities. Growing a WELLcommunity Workplace demonstrates advocacy for mental and physical health as well as a regard for employees’ quality of life.
