How Do You Implement A Corporate Wellness Program?



Considering the average American spends roughly one-third of each day at work, the time we spend at the office adds up quickly. It’s more important than ever for employees and employers alike to take charge of office health, and implement a corporate wellness program to create environments that alleviate stress and fatigue while promoting productivity and creativity. Here are some tips to implement a corporate wellness program.

Healthy Office

The Right Temperature

Avoid extremes – studies show an optimal temperature for productivity is 71.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

Proper Lighting

Natural light can reduce fatigue and stress. If natural isn’t an option, try using full-spectrum lights.


Corporate Wellness App


CircleCare employee engagement platform provides companies with a platform and tools to motivate their employees via positive reinforcements and rewards to establish and maintain healthy lifestyle choices.

Calming Colors

Incorporating cool colors like lavender or aqua can help lower stress levels in the office.

A little Greenery

Plants add oxygen and humidity to dry office air and can enhance creativity.

Healthy Workstations

Comfortable Chair

Use a chair that supports your lower back and has adjustable height so you can sit with your knees parallel to the ground.

Parallel Positioned Monitor

Place your screen at eye level and about 18 to 28 inches away for an arm’s length to limit strain on your eyes and neck.

Positive Memories

Keep a photo of an important person, pet or positive memory nearby for tough days.

Hands-free help

Use a headset to avoid neck pain from holding a phone to your ear with your shoulder.

Soothing sounds

Tune out distracting background noise with an iPod, earplugs, sound machine, or even a fan.

Temperature control

Keep an extra sweater or wrap handy in case.

Act Like You Mean Healthy

Walking Meeting

When meeting one-on-one or with small groups, try a “Walking Meeting.”

Get Moving

Encourage others to use break time to be physically active and get sunshine and fresh air.

Smart Snacking

During meetings or events, ensure that snacks or meals include healthy options.

Be an example

Model these behavior and workplace routines to be a champion of office well-being.

How do these matters?

Both employee and employer need to recognize the fact that their office environment has an effect on their health and well-being – and they are willing to take the initiative. Here are some points that might help understand the situation better –

  • 1 in 3 workers has accepted or left a job due to the condition of the building and amenities offered.
  • Eighty percent of workers say that the overall condition of their office affects how they perceive their employers.
  • Six percent of millennials would accept a payout in exchange for a healthy office environment.
