The beginning of a new year is a time for individuals to do self-evaluations and make new goals or resolutions. It’s also a time where companies can do the same. Among the most common resolutions for individuals — your employees and colleagues likely included — is to get healthier or implement healthier routines.
This year more than ever, human resources and other organizational leaders may be looking at evaluating goals, both at the organizational and employee levels. One goal employers can set is to better support their employees’ new year’s health resolutions.
Resolutions that often last the longest are the ones that happen over time. What are things businesses can do to encourage lasting health throughout the year? One way is to provide a clinic on-site within your workplace. From preventing work-related injuries to boosting immune systems, implementing chiropractic care through an on-site clinic through our turn-key program is an easy and affordable way to provide your employees with an additional healthcare benefit.
As we begin a new year, JazzHR suggests making employee well-being a focus. With a majority of employees stating 2020 as the most stressful year of their professional career, implementing a way to help them stay healthy right on site at your organization could be part of the solution to encourage that focus on well-being. Three topics JazzHR suggests evaluating about your organization are employee productivity levels, if workers seem engaged in their jobs, and if employees seem to be using more sick time. All of these topics have been and continue to be addressed through WorkSiteRight’s implementation.
HR app ADP Marketplace reported through a survey done in late 2020 that “44% of employees surveyed have deferred medical care during the COVID-19 global health event.” As a result, they suggest brainstorming innovative solutions to reverse that number and give employees accessible healthcare options — one thing that makes WorkSiteRight the successful program that it is.
With financial considerations top of mind this year, we understand that the cost of implementing a new program is a big factor. In fact, Open Sourced Workplace suggests making cost optimization a goal this year. Cutting organizational costs is a necessity for some organizations during this time. Decreasing workplace injuries through preventative chiropractic care leads directly to cost savings in terms of spending on workers’ compensation as well as employees’ time off for injuries.
This new year calls for reevaluations for all of us, personally and as organizations. Supporting employees’ healthcare goals by providing an accessible, efficient healthcare option for them while they’re already at work is an easy decision for your employees’ health and well-being.
