It’s no secret that corporate wellness programs are on the rise. These corporate initiatives have been proven to reduce healthcare costs and absenteeism while also increasing productivity. But what is corporate wellness, how can you set one up for your company, and what should a corporate wellness program include? This blog post will answer all of these questions and more.

What Is a Wellness Company?

Corporate wellness companies help businesses plan and host programs, corporate exercise programs, health screenings, or motivational seminars to promote healthy habits for their employees.¬†HealthCare.gov¬†defines corporate wellness plans as an organized health and fitness initiative that focuses on improving employees’ overall physical, mental, and emotional state to keep them healthy and productive at work. It can range from providing more nutritious food options in company cafeterias or corporate gym memberships for employees to more complex corporate wellness programs that include physical activity challenges, nutritional seminars, and corporate exercise programs such as yoga or meditation.

Wellness is all about improving your physical well-being, mindfulness, and productivity. By improving your health, you can lead a happier and healthier life and still get more done on the job. At its core, a wellness company is a company that focuses on your health and productivity to make employees’ personal and professional lives better.

In addition to these benefits, corporate wellness programs allow employees for physical activity during work hours.

The benefits of a wellness program in the workplace:

  • Reduce absenteeism and healthcare costs,
  • Increase productivity by promoting healthy habits and reducing stress levels in the workplace, and
  • Build a corporate culture that embraces health and wellness initiatives as an essential part of the corporate culture

Wellness is all about improving your health and productivity. By improving your health, you can lead a happier and healthier life and still get more done on the job. Through Twello, you can choose a multitude of virtual or onsite wellness classes for employees. Virtual chair yoga and mindfulness classes are among the most popular choices.

What Corporate Wellness Programs Entail

There are many types of corporate wellness programs, and each one has different components. Many wellness programs are offered in combination with other initiatives, so some elements may not be included in all wellness programs. Below is a list of some different aspects of a corporate wellness program:

  • Reduced risk factors that increase the likelihood of diseases and hospitalizations
  • Diminished anxiety through exercise and mindful techniques
  • Increased performance
  • Improved mental health¬†These are just some benefits of corporate wellness programs, and all of them are beneficial for employees and your company’s bottom line.

At Twello, our team of experts creates tailored wellness programs to meet your unique business needs. Here are four of our most popular classes.

Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga is a class for all ages and abilities. This is an introduction to yoga that can be done from the comfort of a desk chair. The course teaches the basics of this ancient practice, and your staff will learn to find a sense of stillness (even if it’s just for a few minutes).

A 2012 study showed that chair yoga reduces stress on participants. Yoga is excellent for your body, mind, and spirit. It improves flexibility, strength, and endurance; helps with balance; increases range of motion; reduces stress levels; calms the nervous. Registered yoga instructors teach our classes.

Mat Yoga

Mat Yoga is a great way to start the day and an excellent addition to any corporate wellness program. Since it’s a full-body workout, it will leave your staff feeling energized and relaxed at the same time. The class will focus on flow, strength, balance, and flexibility. We will use props to help us get into deeper poses. This class is suitable for all levels of yoga experience, but it’s best if you have some previous knowledge or practice with yoga before attending this class.

How To Choose a Good Wellness Company?

Before you get too excited about your new wellness program, you need to do a little research. While the benefits of a wellness program will often be obvious, you can find many wellness companies that may not be as forthcoming about their claims. Companies that offer flat rates are generally your best bet, as they offer more competitive prices and can often be cheaper in cost for a large group of people. You may also want to purchase a bundle that includes both physical movement and mental health services.

You can even read reviews on the different companies to make an educated decision on your own. Ideally, you want your program to focus on physical and mental health, as these are the pillars of health in the United States. But you also want to make sure your program offers some wellness and lifestyle choices that will provide you with a wide variety of options.

For your program to be successful, it needs to focus on a few specific goals. Consider the most significant issues you’re trying to solve. Are your workers taking more sick leave than usual? Perhaps there’s been an atypical drop in productivity, morale, or teamwork. Aligning your wellness program to business goals can ensure that you’ll see a measurable return on the investment.

Finally, you should consider a program that has trained wellness instructors. This can help with the effectiveness of your corporate wellness program.

Average Cost of Hosting a Wellness Program for Your Business

The cost of a wellness company to come to your workplace depends on many factors such as; office location, staffing needs, programming costs, transportation, the purpose of the wellness company, and of course, your company’s budget. Wellness programs can cost anywhere between¬†$150 and $1,200 per employee¬†every year. A survey found that, on average, companies receive a return on investment of between¬†$1 and $4 per dollar spent. Companies that offer flat rates are generally your best bet, as they offer more competitive prices.

At Twello, we believe that the right set of workplace policies and practices will create a better work environment for employees and positively impact productivity and morale. Our Workplace Programs team ensures our policies are aligned with best practices in the industry and makes sure our clients are informed about our current programs and the various vendors we work with.
