CORPORATE WELLNESS: TRANSITION FROM “WHY” TO “HOW”
Most organizations, in India and abroad, who care about their employees, their health, their happiness, and their finances, have mingled corporate wellness program in their culture to such an extent that the question “why corporate wellness programs?” seems old and perhaps no longer a question also. The new question that is buzzing into the corporate atmosphere, especially in the Human Resources department is “How to conduct corporate wellness programs for getting the maximum benefit out of it?”. The transition of “why” to “how” speaks volume about the effectiveness of corporate wellness programs and in fact, corporate wellness programs began to categorize themselves as a powerful tool for companies to attract and retain best brains of the industry.
A 2018 report of Deloitte revealed that almost two-thirds of organizations have categorically stated that wellness programs are a part of their organizational culture.
Time and again, it has been proved that “Prevention is better than Cure”, and the same statement tends to be the basic premise of all the corporate wellness programs. When we talk about prevention, we mean holistic prevention, which includes taking care of both physical and psychological health.
In our effort to seek holistic prevention, nothing can beat the benefits of yoga. This is because yoga aims to sustain the mind-body balance. Yoga is a time-tested system which has its roots deep inside the Indian culture and begun to spread its fruits all-over the world. It is a powerful practice that spreads vibrant energy all over the body making the person physically and mentally fit.
