you can make this the year more employees maintain, if not achieve, their resolutions. for my january newsletter, i reached out to 10 health and wellness experts for their thoughts on how employers can help. i asked for one small change. i wanted the small, doable step, just as we’d advise our employees.
i received advice from an economist, a work-life fit expert, the CEOs and founders of social wellness platforms, an innovator and scientist, a director of policy research, an editor-in-chief of employee benefits news, and others. their ideas vary, from at-work to at-home, physical to spiritual, but i found connecting themes:
- support health beyond the office door
- create opportunities to move
- show appreciation for employees and our world
- use program design to underpin everything
their ideas complement my own, and should provide any employer with input for meaningful dialog and meaningful change.
