Employee Wellness for all Generations
Workplace wellness programs are practically universal in corporate America—a fixture of modern work culture as familiar as the on-site cafeteria or the 401(k) plan, according to a recent Fortune.com article.
It hasn’t always been this way.
When millennials—those born between 1980 and 2000—began hitting the workforce, they expressed a different set of priorities. This group values personal happiness, and they seek out workplaces that support health and wellness.
Leading by Example
We work with companies to implement employee wellness initiatives that resonate with all age groups. And at the WCS office, we practice what we preach, incorporating the same strategies in our own workplace. A casual dress code, telecommuting opportunities, sit/stand desks, treadmill desks, catered healthy lunches once a week—just to name a few.
Wellness programs help companies attract and retain the best talent, and that certainly includes bright and capable young people. It should come as no surprise that 70% of our full-time employees are (you guessed it!) millennials!
