The simple answer to this is yes, they can.
Wellbeing consultancy isn’t about teaching radical or unheard of techniques.
Rather, it’s about motivating and inspiring people to live healthier lives, as well as dispelling the many popular myths surrounding nutrition, fitness, sleep and personal performance.
Magazines, books, Apps and websites are full of good theory, but when it comes to putting things into practice, many people come unstuck. By tackling wellbeing at work, you can ensure this doesn’t happen.
Having real people to learn from, ask questions of and report back to is an extremely effective motivator. Once employees know they can share their plans and discuss their results with a professional, they are far more likely to follow through with their new routine.
Though a magazine may contain extremely helpful information on improving wellbeing at work and at home, unlike the advice an employee will receive as part of a wellbeing programme, information from a magazine will never be tailored specifically to the individual.
Everyone is different, and the best advice an employee can receive is that from a team of qualified professionals who have taken the time to listen to their personal situation.
Whatever form it comes in, support can have a huge impact on our ability to reach our goals.
By encouraging people to tackle personal wellbeing at work, individuals will enjoy the ongoing support of their fellow employees. Indeed, when employees attend events together, they are often able to offer each other a great deal of motivation and encouragement regarding maintaining health and wellbeing at work.
Arguably the most important difference between lifestyle magazines and wellbeing solutions is that while it can be easy to ignore a magazine, corporate wellbeing solutions will actively encourage staff to think in detail about how to improve their personal performance and, most importantly, to take decisive action.
