Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2017 -- Lauren Matheson Ryan, Health Club Coordinator for Hytrol, recently shared how encouraging small lifestyle changes can be beneficial for employees and the company overall in a recent blog article published on The Hytrol Experience.
In the article, she mentioned how promoting occupational wellness can help reduce absences, decrease accidents and work-related illnesses, ease stress for employees covering for those absent as well as emphasize corporate responsibility.
"For those in an office setting, most of their day is spent sitting at a desk," Matheson Ryan said. She suggested incorporating some quick wins and long-term goals in the company culture to inspire a healthy lifestyle.
"Encourage your employees to take walk breaks or park their car further away to get more steps in each day," she said. "Remind them to use opportunities like phone calls to stand up, do calf raises, practice balancing on one leg."
She mentioned that not only does this benefit the current workforce, but it is an enticing talking point for recruitment and employee engagement.
"At Hytrol, we promote wellness by having an on-site medical clinic and full-service health club at no charge for employees, their spouses, dependents and even guests. From personal training and recreational activities to annual lab work and nutrition guidance, we promote these resources so anyone can maintain a healthy lifestyle all year long," added Matheson Ryan.
