Employee Wellness

Employee wellness encompasses strategies and programs designed to promote the overall health, safety, and well-being of workers in the workplace. OHS guidelines emphasize the importance of initiatives that support physical, mental, and emotional health. Employee wellness programs often include fitness activities, nutrition education, mental health resources, stress management support, ergonomic assessments, and access to healthcare services. Creating a culture that values and prioritizes employee wellness not only enhances productivity and morale but also reduces absenteeism, injuries, and healthcare costs, contributing to a safer and more positive work environment overall.
