Workforce Wellbeing in March: Employee Happiness

What is employee happiness? In jargony terms, it's a positive mindset enabling emotional engagement with one's company. Put simply, it's that pleasing, content state of being that makes an employee willing to "go that extra mile" while running with an idea or problem-solving. It's that special something that makes it possible for an employee to, say, write a blog post about employee happiness without rolling her eyes.

Wellbeing Program Success Series: Listen To Your Employees

Listening to employees is a critical component of maintaining a company culture that values people as individuals with unique interests, struggles, and goals. Individual employees create a workforce culture, after all, and make the culture happen. They personify it. They bring it to life. They live it.

Workforce Wellbeing in January: Sugar Awareness

Aside from being the first month in the new year, that special time for making get-healthier resolutions, January also comes on the heels of December — when most people eat and drink “whatever they want” as they move from one holiday party to another, leaving cookie crumbs in their wake. Unfortunately for those of us with a sweet tooth, a big slice of grandma’s rum cake doesn’t pack the same nutritional punch as a naturally sweetened apple, orange, or strawberry. But ‘tis the season, right?

[Infographic] 100 Years of Workforce Wellbeing

Most of us — if not all of us — have participated in an employer-sponsored wellness program of some sort. Even if we’re old enough to remember when it was perfectly acceptable to light up a cigarette in the office, we’ve grown accustomed to our employers offering health screenings, fitness challenges, or educational lunch-and-learns to promote healthy habits.

What it Takes to Achieve Real Value from Your Workforce Wellbeing Program

Here’s a startling stat from the CDC: 6 in 10 U.S. adults have a chronic disease and 4 in 10 have two or more. It’s not a stretch to suggest that about half of your workforce is actively managing a serious health condition, such as diabetes or heart disease.
