The year of the London Olympics, 2012 is almost upon us and a lot of businesses are thinking seriously about increasing the level of Wellbeing initiatives they offer staff members.
You may be planning new wellbeing initiatives at your workplace for next year. Take advantage of‘Olympics Fever’ and let us help you adopt the perfect approach that will increase morale, engagement and above all, performance.
If you’re stuck for Wellbeing ideas for 2012, here are a few suggestions of solutions that successfully focus people’s minds and help them adopt positive wellbeing behaviours for the short, medium and long term.
- Set up your own company ‘Olympics’. This can be a single event as simple as a pedometer challenge or a series of team events such as 5-a-side football, netball, swimming or running. Prizes and recognition for winners is always a great incentive all round.
- Encourage staff to enter charity events during 2012 and keep a record of individual achievements and the total amount of money raised by your people for good causes. Making wellbeing a collaborative venture and a company value can really change the culture in your offices.
- Set up a forum where individuals and teams can commit to their biggest wellbeing challenge of the year. Whether this be to run a marathon, climb a mountain, lose weight, lower blood pressure, sleep better or improve work-life balance, creating an environment where people can share ideas, motivate each other and experience a sense of common purpose will make a huge difference to the results they achieve.
Once you have your key ideas in place, a brilliant way to spur staff on to great success is to provide them with regular motivation and accountability in the form of wellbeing workshops or 1-2-1 coaching.
Just the lightest of touches to keep people on track month by month makes a huge difference over the course of a year.
If you’re interested in new wellbeing initiatives for olympic year, we can set them up for you. All you need to do is let us know what services you’d like to offer staff and when you’d like to get started.
