Trends in Workplace Wellness: Dallas Company on the Cutting Edge
The topic of workplace wellness is a fascinating one that impacts many of the clients Testosterone Centers of Texas has the privilege of serving.
As people in the workplace who are battling to fulfill their professional obligations, pay bills, advance careers, or achieve goals, all while balancing a home life and trying to have some fun, we can quickly find ourselves suffering burnout and diminished capacity to achieve.
Burnout leads to a loss of productivity, at least, and sometimes to a sense that we need to look for another job at most — both are difficult and costly outcomes for both employee and employer.
As a result, employers have recently been taking a serious look at how to keep employees emotionally and physically healthy, more productive, and how to retain those valuable employees over the long term.
It starts with wellness.
Workplace Wellness Trends Include Emotional Wellness
Program offerings today often focus on employees’ mental and emotional health, in addition to addressing traditional physical health concerns.
A local DFW company is out on the front end of this “overall” approach to employee wellness: Satori Capital, an investment firm with offices in Dallas and Fort Worth.
Sunny Vanderbeck, a co-founder and managing partner at Satori Capital, has said Satori is working towards “a whole-person approach to well-being” that encompasses four dimensions of health: mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.
Activities focused on total wellness that have been tried include the following:
- Weekly group meditation
- Journaling seminars
- Walking meetings
- Health coaching
- Nourishing meals provided during the workday
“We’re in the investment business, so the more effective and efficient we are, the better decisions we make, the better our business works, so there is a bottom line to all of this. And how wonderful is it to be in the position to help people become the best versions of themselves?” Vanderbeck said.
Workplace Wellness Matters: Data on Stress and Burnout
CareerBuilder collected data from private sector workers in 2017 across industries in the U.S., and the negative influences of stress and burnout they found were eye opening. Employees report the following negative symptoms:
