The pandemic has made wellness in the workplace a priority, and this will likely continue to be a critical component of companies in the future.
According to a new report from wellness portal MediKeeper, there are four key wellness trends that will define 2021.
For starters, remote working is making the need for wellness programs more urgent as some employees are learning how to maintain a work-life balance.
Companies have had to become more reliant on technology more than ever before, and these advancements can help them monitor employees’ health.
Planning the return to the office needs to start now in order to keep employees safe and alleviate any anxiety they have about coming back into the workplace.
Businesses should also utilize collected data to gather insight into what employees actually want and need from wellness programs.
“There is no doubt that this past year has tested people in ways that they never could have imagined, and the new year is likely going to continue to push people outside of their comfort zones while the world continues its fight against COVID,” the report’s authors wrote. “By planning ahead with these four trends in mind, you’ll be better prepared to handle the challenges of the upcoming year.”
