How smartphone apps and tech can improve wellness for your employees

Your employees are the greatest asset to your business. Therefore, helping to maximise productivity and employee wellbeing when in the workplace is a must.

Before we discuss how to implement wellness, it is important to define it. Wellness means to practice healthy habits on a daily basis.

How to introduce wellness into your business

Wellness initiatives through health and education programmes are a way in which your business can begin to incorporate wellness into its day to day. To do this, wellness tech and gadgets can be encouraged by businesses to improve happiness and overall productivity in the workplace.

Educating your employees on how they can use wellness through apps to improve their job performance is an excellent step towards a healthy workplace.

In the current situation, online seminars and meetings are a commonplace and using a web call to teach your employees the benefits of wellness is a great start. Webinars and online meetings are less pressured environments and the chat function can make it easier to ask questions for some members of staff.

Healthy eating and exercise drives are often used by businesses to encourage team building and healthy living. In the same way, encouraging wellness through the regular use of apps (which are discussed below) for a sustained period of time can create closer bonds and break down boundaries around mental health wellbeing.

Encouraging employees to use wellness apps for sleeplessness or insomnia is also mutually beneficial. Usage of these apps by your team can increase productivity as employees may be more well-rested and content.

Most companies now have their workforce operating from home, so offering full or part-time remote working on a permanent basis may be beneficial to some of your employees.

Some wellness apps and tech to know about

Headspace – This app is perfectly suited to business employees as it provides meditation specifically geared to stress-relief and personal growth. It also aids with exercise support and has a new ‘mini-meditation’ function for time-poor individuals.

HabitMinder – For those who love having a To-do list and checking off goals and targets, this app is perfect. The app not only allows the user to set and check off goals but also to track progress for long term targets.

Calm – This app supports users with meditation and sleep aid and has stories narrated by celebrities such as Harry Styles and Kate Winslet. It also has guided stretching and movement routines and music to help users focus or relax.

SAD lamps – These lamps are often used by those who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder or simply those who dislike the cold and dark. The lamp is used to create a bright light in the morning, mimicking a sunrise to wake you up more naturally.

Deep sleep headbands – These do what they say on the tin. The headband plays quiet tones to help you fall asleep and also tracks the amount of deep sleep the user is getting.

Many employers believe that working on the wellness of employees is not a priority. But there are many examples of ways in which wellness can boost productivity and happiness in work life, so why wouldn’t you take this seriously?

Tech is already hugely beneficial to almost every business and wellness apps and gadgets are just another way it can help.
