What is an employee wellness hub?

Maximise the value of this central repository where employees can access your wellbeing program and wellness communications.

What does employee wellness mean to your organisation? Have you considered wellness initiatives to support your employees’ mental, physical and social health in your workplace?

Employee wellness is no longer just a buzzword, with a recent IBEC survey finding more than eight out of ten organisations have a very high level of support for wellbeing at senior leadership level.

The survey of human resource professionals in Ireland also found 64% of respondents report to senior management on workplace wellbeing, while 46% were allocated a specific budget for wellbeing initiatives.

The survey also found four out of ten organisations had a distinct employee wellbeing strategy, while two thirds of organisations had a dedicated team or individual responsible for wellbeing.

With proven links between employee wellness and productivity, performance and retention, those organisations that fail to respond to their employees’ wellness needs risk being left behind.

As a result, more and more organisations are considering wellness innovations to provide their employees with the mental, physical and social wellness supports they need to achieve their full potential in the workplace.

Whether you are just starting out with an employee wellness program or looking for ways to enhance the one you have, an employee wellness hub is a dynamic central repository that demonstrates your commitment to your employees while streamlining your wellness communications.

An employee wellness hub can bring all your initiatives together in one place online where your employees can access resources, downloads, advice and even health services to support their wellbeing.

Some organisations run online yoga and mindfulness activities, choir practice and special interest groups like photography clubs via their online wellness hub.

Others proudly showcase their wellness initiatives such as “No-meeting Fridays” and online social clubs.

You can add value to your employee hub with integrated online benefits from wellbeing partners such as an online doctor service for unlimited GP consultations, and mental health support with online counselling services.

These features can form part of a holistic approach to health and wellness that your employees can access quickly and easily via the web.
