"You've got to have healthy, happy, thriving individuals on your team so they bring their very best to work each day, and they go home feeling satisfied about their contributions and how they're spending their days at work," says Joe Convertino, Jr, President at CH Insurance.
The modern day work environment, with long periods of sitting, quick takeout meals in-between meetings, and computer screen eye strain, isn't conducive to the mental and physical well-being of employees. So investing more deeply in your employees' happiness and wellness at work is critically important for them as individuals, and the long-term viability of the organization.
Reflecting on the cornerstones we practice everyday here at CH Insurance, we distilled it down to these elements we walk and talk for our own workplace wellness:
Purpose: liking what you do each day and being motivated to achieve your goals as part of a vision you're excited about
Social: having supportive relationships both inside and outside of work life
Financial: managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security
Community: liking where you live, feeling safe, and having pride in your community
Physical: having good health and enough energy to create, have impact, and grow every day
If there are other aspects of what you believe goes into creating a well-rounded workplace with wellness at the forefront, share them with us on here or across our social media platforms. Here are some additional things your team might love to incorporate at your office as you walk your way towards wellness. All this month we're focusing on wellness at work and we look forward to hearing and learning from you as well!
