Your culture will only ever be as healthy as the senior leader wants it to be. – Bill Hybels
In part 2 of our wellness conversation, we dive into areas of wellness that matter – and how to get started! Here are just a handful of the points we discuss today:
1. Rest – it’s really clear that rest is key to being well. It’s also critically important to get plenty of rest in order to make good decisions.
2. Flexible Time Off – most people are so committed to their work that they need real permission to focus on their families. When you have committed team members they will get the work done, and it doesn’t have to involve micro-managing vacation time.
3. Health Insurance – it can be confusing and expensive. We work with a great insurance agency who helps us navigate the health insurance waters. Then, we implement programs like a fully funded HSA and Tele-doc, which helps our team members attain ease and peace of mind around health issues.
4. Include Families – invite families to team wellness events and hang out at each other’s kids’ events. Our team is way more cohesive because we know each other’s families and what matters most to them.
5. Community Involvement – participate in fun community wellness events like the Color Run and Go Red for Women or programs like AAU basketball and Girls on the Run.
I hope you find this two-part conversation enlightening and encouraging. Again, if you aren’t executing a wellness strategy currently, now is the time to get started – and today’s podcast will help give you some ideas to get the ball rolling.
Question: What wellness strategies are you executing at your organization? What kind of impact have you seen as a result?
