Creating a sense of community focused on health goals is another way to help motivate employees to stick with it. In fact, the survey found that 57% of respondents said they were more likely to participate in a fitness routine if it was in a social setting.

Avoiding burnout to maintain proper mental health is equally important to physical health. Including relaxation rooms that encourage meditation or mindfulness can help reduce work-related stress, while boosting productivity.
