Very few employers have a physical wellness strategy that’s fit for purpose. There might be provisions for a minority of gym goers but not all staff. Some employers might run fitness challenges but these positively deter the sedentary staff that need support to keep active.
Does it need fixing?
Some employers are happy just to put a check in the box even if the provisions are not fit for purpose. Afterall physical wellness plays no strategic role for a business, right? Wrong. People are probably a company’s most important asset. A good physical wellness plan can offer productivity gains but also turbo-charge a company’s social impact, employee engagement plus provide a PR punch.
