Employee wellness programs have become increasingly popular in recent years as companies recognize the benefits of promoting a healthy lifestyle for their employees.

While the pandemic has eased its grip on our lives, it has brought with it some lessons about the inadequacies of our corporate wellness infrastructure. Employers now need to remodel these programs to meet the needs of the new normal, rethinking their approach to wellness and curating initiatives that meet the needs of employees where they are.
Building the right wellness program for your workforce requires paying attention to the granular issues of wellness and health in your organization. Well-being and health are not stand-alone issues and they are dependent on a large number of factors, including organizational culture, workplace issues, and personal health circumstances. Understanding these contexts help managers and employers identify their employees’ actual wellness problems and roll out the most effective solutions.
Now more than ever, employees are taking their well-being and health more seriously, and this has become a major determinant of organizational success. Employers need to revisit the corporate wellness architecture and fix these deficits. In the long run, offering employees a more personalized and holistic approach to wellbeing not only achieves the set health indicators for their workforce but also saves organizations lots of money.
Literacy begets confidence, just as promoting a culture of literacy begets a confident workforce. If a workplace hinders confidence, if workers have no confidence in themselves or no confidants in whom they may confide, wellness is unattainable.

Now, HR leaders must identify and address the needs of employees to re-recruit them or get swallowed up in the Great Resignation.
