How to Promote Health and Wellness in Your Facilities

Part of your job is making sure your facility is modern, safe, and comfortable. You’re always looking for ways to upgrade your building and stay ahead of obstacles. 

A safe workplace promotes good health and wellness practice. Good health and wellness features in the office are already in demand, and that demand is only likely to increase.

Here’s what we mean. The majority of the workforce will soon be made up of employees from the Millennial and Generation Z generations and Sanford Health News writes that people of these generations value support for health and wellness in the workplace above previous generations.

You’ve been in this business long enough to spot a problem before it gets out of control. Get a step ahead of your tenants by upgrading your building’s workplace wellness options before they ask for it.

How to Promote Health and Wellness: The Open Office

Cubicles have gone the way of the dodo bird. Maybe it’s just people were ready for a change, or it’s a cycle of office design dating back to the turn of the 20th century.

nullWhatever the cause, open offices make interactions easier. CEOs or other high-level executives are not sequestered away in hidden offices, mixing more easily with the rank-and-file employees, which promotes a sense of teamwork and democratic comradery. Interactions are more frequent and informal in an open setting. All of these features help to reduce stress, placing greater importance on employees’ mental wellbeing.


Defeat Endemic Back Problems with Ergonomic Furniture

Ergonomic seating is more than a design trend. It’s an investment in the health and wellbeing of a workforce. As a facility manager, you understand the value of offering comfortable seating. Comfortable furniture can have a huge impact on a tenant’s satisfaction. In the modern office, people spend a lot of time sitting. Ergonomic seating prevents musculoskeletal disorders, which in turn prevents workers’ compensation costs and prevents injuries, making both employers and employees happy.

Envirotech offers a large amount of ergonomic seating options. Refurbished and remanufactured options for top brands are available, meaning you can save money, help the planet, and aid your tenants’ back problems. It’s a win-win-win.
