  • Set & Measure Goals: It’s all well and good to say you want a healthier workplace, but if you don’t define your goals and measure your progress towards them it will be easy to get off track. Work with your team to come up with goals (e.g. under 5 percent of staff smokers by the end of the year, 100 miles walked by the end of the month) and track them somewhere visible in the office.
  • Identity Role Models: Let’s be honest. Healthy living is not the easiest thing. To motivate your staff to continue on the path towards it, identify wellness champions who are modeling a healthy lifestyle and make sure you walk the walk yourself.
  • Make It Easy: Your employees are a lot more likely to see success in their wellness goals if you set them up for it. Replace unhealthy snacks with great food choices in the break room, make more of your meetings walking ones, offer stand-up desks, and look for other ways to encourage healthy living on the job.
