78780375High demands in the workplace make way for long hours at a desk each day for many professionals in the staffing services industry. states the amount of time a person sits during the day is now associated with a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and death, regardless of regular exercise after work. Obviously, employee wellness is an integral part of creating a positive, productive and healthy office environment, but many staffing firms do not always have the right tools in place.

Here are three benefits employers can expect to see from implementing a workplace health and wellness program at their agency or firm.

Work wellness programs are great perks that have high perceived values among employees. Employees have higher engagement when they are satisfied with their benefits. Staffing firms can show their employees that the company cares about their health by actively investing in their everyday well-being. Employees want to know that their hard work and long hours are appreciated through rewards and recognition. Companies that proactively help their employees manage stress and stay healthy will have employees that are more likely to continue good work sustainably. Workplace activity platforms, like Dooo, offer great prizes and reminders for completing challenges and tasks in the program. These prizes and rewards are great perks for employees to talk about when mentioning the benefits of working for their company.

These programs set the tone for creating a healthy and happy workforce and environment at the office. Getting employees to think about things like drinking more water, sleeping better and stretching to prevent back pain helps them to stay healthy and happy. Plus, regular movement and quick breaks during the day can cut down on overall stress. Employees become more aware of their actions and drive down sick days and the feeling of exhaustion. In addition, the happier your employees are, the more productive they can be and the more efficient they are in working together and completing projects.

Increase positive corporate culture through a solid work wellness program. People at work want to be connected socially to each other. A good excuse to get them mingling is office exercise and finding healthier food options to share. With an app like Dooo, the social aspect of opt-in challenges gets everyone involved, regardless of office location or whether you are part-time or full-time staff. With staff working on flex hours, from home, or at client sites, the company culture is hard to pin-point. With this type of corporate social gaming, you get the benefits both ways: people can start to put a face to a name and feel connected to the company wherever they are.

With ever increasing demands at the office, businesses are looking at health and wellness initiatives as a big part of the solution for employee needs during the work day. With an easy to rollout program companies can provide the initiatives they want in a way employees will enjoy.
