7. Are there inexpensive ways to encourage healthy habits in our employees?
Yes. Even if your company cant afford such luxuries as an onsite gym or company cafeteria, there are plenty of steps you can take to promote employee wellness. For example, offer some health alternatives to candy, chips, and soda in company vending machines. Encourage employees to get some exercise by starting a walking group and creating maps of local walking destinations. And dont forget to take a stand on one of the most significant health risks by making your workplace a smoke-free zone.
