Premiums for group health insurance can be affected by a number of factors, including the overall health of the group and its claims history. Therefore, it makes sense to want your employees to stay as healthy as possible. Here are some ways to help establish healthy habits amongst your group.
Encourage Healthy Eating
One of the best ways to promote good eating habits is to set a good example. Stock the office kitchen with convenient food like fresh fruit or granola bars for healthier snacking. Another option is to host team potluck lunches by asking team members to bring in healthy dishes to sample.
Keep Them Moving
Regular exercise is a great way to stay healthy so let employees get in some extra movement on the job. Instead of staying in a conference room, try a walking meeting outdoors. A standing desk or some stability balls can help employees get a break from sitting all day. Form an exercise group that can meet after hours or take advantage of group rates at a local health club.
Help Lower Stress Levels
Encouraging employees to take regular breaks throughout the day can provide the mental breaks necessary to keep stress levels lower. A bulletin board with helpful information on physical and mental health resources can encourage employees to get needed help. Or for real employee pampering, bringing in a masseuse or yoga instructor can certainly help reduce stress and improve sleep quality.
