According to Entrepreneur.com, Finding your company’s winning formula is dependent on these key ingredients: creating a thriving, vibrant workplace and encouraging and supporting employee wellness. Just like a cake recipe that has stood the test of time, there is a certain recipe that companies can replicate in order to see success. Let’s take a look at the ingredients of a healthy company:

Celebrate Successes and Milestones

When employees have successes and reach milestones, healthy companies understand the importance of recognizing those achievements. When you celebrate an employee’s accomplishments, everyone will reap the benefits of that positivity. A culture of excitement, hard work and happiness will evolve. By celebrating emplpoyees, you are unifying your entire workorce, which is not an easy thing to do!

Encourage Work-Life Balance

In today’s workplace, employees expect to have a balance between work and personal life. Many companies help facilitate this by offering flexible hours, work from home days and even paid volunteer days off. The more balance your employees can enjoy, the more refreshed they will be. This leads to better performance overall. Because so many jobs are able to be done remotely and at any time of the day, it is actually better to provide flexibility from 9-5 and allow your employees to balance their own work and personal lives.

Prioritize Health and Wellness

Everyone knows that health and wellness are important to the overall well-being of employees. The hardest part can be actually committing to a workout routine. Take this burden off of employees by providing an outlet at the office. Whether it be an onsite gym or weekly yoga classes where an instructor comes in, it is worth the investment. Employees who work out during the day return to their work with more optimism and levels of productivity. You can encourage participation by offering prizes or rewards like an extra paid day off!

The healthiest companies are the most successful companies. If you are a business owner, you want the healthiest business possible. In order to achieve this, there are three key ingredients: celebrate successes and milestones, encourage a work-life balance, and prioritize health and wellness in the workplace. When you implement these changes, you will notice your company’s health improve.
