5 Ideas to Make Your Corporate Wellness Program Thrive

no. 2 Corporate Wellness

Did you know 80% of employees at companies with booming wellness programs feel more bought in and cared for by employers?

Health and wellness programs have become popular in many companies to bring in and keep top talent, create a fun and productive work environment, and promote overall well being. A successful wellness program strikes a balance between educating employees on self-care while still having fun. If your team isn’t engaged or having fun, they’ll lose interest very quickly. So, make it fun!

Below are 5 ideas (many we’ve used here at SnugZ and experienced the benefit first hand) that you can easily work into your wellness program to make it thrive!

1. Offer Creative Workspaces

Like John Cleese once said, “If you want creative workers give them time to play.” Nobody wants to feel like they are working in a prison cell a.k.a. a cubicle with nothing to stare at but 3 blank walls. Put a ping pong table in the break room, offer colorful and comfy chairs, and surprise them with a desk toy like our RATTLER wood snake cube puzzle.

2. Remind People to Get Flu Shots

Flu season is back and is already the most widespread on record. Now is a good time to send out a list of locations offering flu shots (especially those covered by the company’s health insurance). To make it easy, you can also arrange for a company to give flu shots on-site. Give each employee a branded hand sanitizer to promote general health around the office.

3. Host a Monthly Healthy Potluck

Everyone loves to eat right? Well, even if they don’t, they should! This one’s easy and tasty. First, decide on a day and then put together a sign up sheet with 2 columns (name and what you’re bringing). Announce that it’s been posted in the break room or send it out to individual teams so people can join in.

4. Practice Zen

Take a deep breath. Stress remains an ever-growing problem throughout the world and especially here in the United States. All of us can reduce stress by becoming more mindful through meditation and yoga. Every couple weeks have a yoga instructor come teach a class in the office or hold regular meditation sessions. Uplift the mood of employees, while promoting happiness and well-being by diffusing ZEN essential oils in your work space.

5. Start Walking (Meetings)

Walk and talk. It’s a concept older than time itself. A few reasons to turn your normal everyday meeting into a walking meeting:

  1. Introduce physical activity into your workday
  2. Get a boost of energy by moving
  3. Be inspired by what you see on your journey
  4. Increase collaboration by moving from one conversation to another
  5. Research suggests walking makes people more creative

Sanitizer makes it easy to combat germs and “Bad Nasties” on-the-go.  Make sure you carry it with you and apply often!

The 5th Sense


Everyone knows what the smell of fresh cut grass is, or the sound of the ice cream truck rolling down the street, the feeling of an ice cube in our hands or what neon lights look like at night. But when was the last time you had a delicious freshly baked cookie, or tasty treat? Chances are, you could tell us when and where, because an individual’s sense of taste is a powerful way of triggering a memory.

The holiday season is right around the corner and what better way to connect with your customers then by hitting all 5 senses? Sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste! Taste seems to be the most complicated barrier to break, but why is it so important?

When someone tastes something enjoyable, like a candy or cookie, a positive feeling occurs. When people often think back to the particular food item they ate, it takes them back to the same experience they had while eating it. Giving that personal, and yet subconscious, touch will ultimately be the reason you are remembered.

Our SweetZ are perfect for any occasion or opportunity to create a lasting impression.
