A prominent aspect of workplace wellness programs, and thus a key area for offering up HealthETeams Challenge challenges, is physical wellbeing. The challenges that meet this component of wellness/wellbeing are related to two areas: nutrition/healthy eating and physical activities/healthy exercise. So posts related to this topic are for Physical Wellbeing.
To be sure, most traditional workplace wellness programs place great emphasis on physical health because workplace wellness programs have been based mostly on reducing long term healthcare risks. However, most progressive employers are beginning to understand that while physical wellbeing can aid in reducing preventable healthcare costs in the future, in the short term physical wellbeing is a driver of better and more energetic performance and employee engagement. In keeping with the context of HealthETeams Challenge, all challenges should be crafted to emphasize a dimension related to teamwork and collaboration.
