Wellness? You may be forgiven for believing that the new rise in the word, Wellness is just another ploy for millennials to demand more pay and fewer hours. However, the term wellness in fact comes from the 1950’s/60’s and 70’s and was crafted in California by an informal network of physicians and thinkers.
Having taken a slightly different form in recent year’s wellness strategies have begun revolutionising the way in which we approach health both physically and mentally, continuing to prove how beneficial it is in making employees happier and by extension businesses. Wellness it seems is leading the way to better success for both employee’s lives and businesses alike.
In particular Millennials are the most receptive to wellness strategies. Constantly searching for that illusive workplace balance Millennials are fast overtaking workforces and with it bringing a want for more balance in the workplace. In fact by 2020 Millennials will comprise of an estimated 75% of the workforce, so although new ideas may occasionally seem tedious they may just be essential to the future of your workforce.
Northern America currently offers the most comprehensive wellness programmes however; these same programmes have begun stretching across to the UK and Europe. The British government has also become involved and devised a 5 year plan for introducing more health initiatives into workplaces across the UK.
With that in mind we have been asking ourselves the question, what can our speakers offer workplaces looking to look after their employees better? Of course our first stop was our wealth of speakers who continue to embody wellness philosophies perfect for injecting a little wellness into the workplace.
