Position your staff for success by promoting a healthy spine, muscle, and nervous system
With the new year comes a fresh start and an opportunity to embrace new healthy living goals. Its time to support employees in forming healthy habits and ensuring that every workplace is optimised towards the team’s wellbeing.
Did you know?
Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, such as back, neck, and joint pain, are responsible for one-third of all lost time at work. How much could this be impacting your company’s bottom line?
How to help:
Increased sedentary lifestyles pose new challenges for organizations and HR departments and potentially pose health problems for individual employees. HR professionals can support healthy active workplace habits through a three-prong approach: inform, instigate, and integrate.
Inform: Sharing evidence-based information with your team is essential to getting buy-in at all levels. Many HR managers are finding a return-to-premises strategy is similar to onboarding new employees with a return to basics. A new year is a great time to remind team members of workplace health and wellness resources, and where they can find information about their benefit plan coverage.
Live interactive events, either virtual or in-person, can help engage employees and assist them with retaining information. Inviting health experts like chiropractors is a great way for employees to get their specific questions answered by specialists.
Instigate: HR managers can encourage team members by putting those healthy habits into practice around the office. You can help facilitate and encourage proper ergonomic equipment for both home and office set-ups.
But even ergonomic equipment will have little effect when used improperly, so ensure staff are properly trained in their set-up and use. Chiropractors can also help conduct workplace assessments, developing strategies that can help reduce repetitive strain injuries.
Integrate: Successful habits are the ones that become seamlessly integrated into routines, so it’s important to make habits as accessible as possible – whether that is having healthy snack options in the break room or encouraging employees to seek treatments from the health practitioners they need. As the axiom goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
