Employee health is an important part of a successful business. Employees who are healthy perform better at work and are less likely to need to take sick time. If your employees are healthy they will be happier, your business will run smoother and it will save money in the long term. Investing in employee wellness is worthwhile for the employees and the business as a whole. If you would like to make a difference in the physical health of your employees, then you may want to consider using a wellness plan that incorporates corporate pedometers.
Corporate pedometers are an excellent and effective way to begin your company’s journey to wellness. Here are some reasons to consider incorporating the corporate pedometer into your plan.
Making the decision to invest in health can be overwhelming, both mentally, and financially. A step counter is a simple, cost-effective, initial step (pun intended) in the process. They are relatively inexpensive and don’t require any major, immediate changes–all you have to do is wear the small device–but they do produce results.
The pedometer has immediate impact on employees in that it changes their awareness of their daily activity. Just being able to track their movement has the effect of encouraging many people to increase their activity.
Keeping track of movement while at work can help individuals increase their daily activity, but it can also aid in decisions around the workplace that can encourage employee activity. Employers can alter layouts or routines so as to aid in increased daily activity.
The pedometer provides a constant reminder of an individual’s activity and continually sets new goals to be beat–just by being worn daily.
It provides an easy way set individual or corporate goals to be met. Even small increases in activity on a daily basis can have a significant impact.
The use of corporate pedometers really is the perfect way to make that first, difficult step towards corporate wellness.
