Want your employees to be more productive? Make sure to take their wellness into account. Here are some tips for improving health and wellness in the workplace.

Sanitize

Make sure everything is sanitized. Make hygiene a top priority. Place soaps and hand sanitizers throughout your office and encourage your employees to use them. Wipe down and clean desks, handlebars, computer mice, smartphones and tablets.

Morale

Psychological wellness is also important. Maintain a positive and healthy atmosphere at work. The workplace should be a friendly place; keep communication open between co-workers and between people at different position levels in your company. Make sure employees feel valued and appreciated. Make sure to foster workplace relationships. Open space and bright lighting are also important.

Eye Health

Staring at a computer for hours a day can make your eyes irritated. Encourage employees to take breaks. Use the 20/20/20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look at an object that is 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Bright natural sun-lit rooms can also help reduce eye strain. Some employees may find computer goggles useful as well.

Encourage Healthy Lifestyles

Encourage your employees to exercise, stay fit and eat a healthy diet. This will also help improve the overall morale in the workplace. Give them some tips about healthy food options and gyms in the neighborhood. If possible, install exercise machines or standing desks. Provide fresh fruit and healthy drinks.
