Are you a South African Human Resources (HR) Manager looking for ideas for your employee wellness program?

Are you looking for ideas from businesses who are at the forefront of attracting and retaining world-class staff?

This short 4-minute video takes a look at how the likes of:

  • Tinder
  • Netflix
  • SpaceX
  • TransferWise

…. all approach corporate and employee wellness initiatives.

There are a couple of factors to be discussed here:

  1. When looking at these case studies, there is a big focus on the physical wellness of staff and team members. Mental health remains a major issue for workforces in South Africa and local HR managers need to build this into their planning.
  2. Very few organisations have big budgets to invest in gyms and wellness facilities for their staff – this means you need to think creatively about how you can use what you do have to encourage physical exercise for your teams
  3. The importance of content in developing employee and corporate wellness programs. One of the biggest challenges that managers face when developing wellness programs is being able to get buy-in from team members. Staff will regularly complain they are “too busy” to be able to participate and this will lead to low-levels of participation. By developing organisation-specific content and using team members as role models, you should achieve higher levels of participation in your program.

We are all about collaboration. If you have seen other examples of employee or corporate wellness programs that you think would benefit Human Resource (HR) Managers in South African then post them in the chats below.

Looking forward to engaging with you!
