JACKSONVILLE, FL (October 8, 2018) “Corporate wellbeing programs often serve two main purposes: improve the overall health of employees and improve productivity in the workplace.” Continuwell’s CEO, Dr. Charu Raheja, just released her latest book, Why Wellbeing is Simply Good Business. The book guides readers to understand why focusing on the employees’ wellbeing is beneficial to both the company and its employees and members. The book also offers easy-to-implement and low-cost solutions to start a wellbeing plan as well as ways to measure the success of the program in meeting the company’s goals.
Dr. Raheja’s book helps to discuss all the factors that one should consider when developing a well-being program for the company. A well-rounded well-being program will not only consider the employees’ physical and mental wellbeing but also their financial and career wellbeing. The book also touches on the often difficult task of getting accurate data on the impact of well-being programs and determining its return on investment (ROI). Instead, the book recommends other measures of success including employee engagement with the program.
Furthermore, the book goes over the different strategies of wellbeing that a company can implement in their workplace. Some are easy to implement, while others will require thorough and thoughtful planning. To list a few, companies can develop supportive leadership teams, consistent communication, continuous learning and growth opportunities, and creating wellbeing habits. Companies can increase the employee engagement as well with the resources it provides with the use of customizable apps on their phones and desktop. The more specific the mobile solution to the company, the more likely that employees will engage with it and feel connected to the company. Having company resources available directly on phones makes it easier for employees and staff to access all the resources available to them through the company. In her related previous book, Engaging and Communicating with Employees, Charu discusses further how employee engagement impacts companies and the different ways to successfully engage employees.
