MAKE HEALTHY EMPLOYEES PART OF THE PLAN
If your business runs on a calendar year basis, you are probably putting the final touches on the budget plan for next year. If you have set aside some $$$ to support wellness programs, great. But please look at the programs. Consider how you can use those funds to really get people moving and to create a true culture of health. Your employees need help doing this stuff. Just "putting it out there" isn't enough.
SOME HEALTHY EMPLOYEE PROGRAM OPTIONS
There are ways to provide help without spending a fortune. It takes leadership and high-touch programming. Proactive Partners is one resource...go to www.beproactive.com.
An interesting no-cost resource - Take5Moment.com. It's an innovative YouTube-esque free on-line library of video segments and blogs. They show people who are short on time how to Take 5 (minutes) to manage stress, release tension built up from hours at the computer, get energized in the late-afternoon. And if 5 minutes is too much time, they have Take 5 mini's. And they have just expanded their offering in the "Office and Work" category. Worth a few minutes of your time.
AND SPEAKING OF "TAKING 5"
I personally am taking off. Time for me to retire. So Debra will be taking over the blog site. And she plans to update the posts about once a month. So check back to see what The Healthy Employee has to talk about. We hope it will be helpful. Thanks for listening. Barb
