Workplace wellness: culture-first mentality makes employees, happy, healthy, more engaged

When an organization like NOW Marketing works to create an environment of health and wellness, they see benefits like increased productivity, retention of staff, decreased employee absenteeism, and lower insurance and workers compensation costs.

Staying active

NOW Marketing Group does many things to make sure their team is staying active on a daily basis. One of the things the team does together to move, is taking twice-daily walks around the neighborhood they work in. Not only does this ensure the team is working towards their step count everyday, but it creates an atmosphere of team building. The team has even participated in a step challenge, introducing a little friendly competition to the office!

Of course, during the colder months of Ohio, it’s not exactly pleasant to walk. So, to continue the focus on active living, the team has a weekly yoga session in the office. To make sure employees aren’t sitting hunched over all day, several team members have stand-up desks they incorporate into their daily office routine. Along with timers that let you know it’s time to stand and move if you’ve been sitting too long.

Staying Healthy

Hydration. Encouraging healthy water consumption is also an important part of NOW’s culture. Fresh, filtered water is always available in the kitchen. The company purchased Ulla Hydration Reminders for the team to use. The device attaches to water bottles and flashes to remind an individual to drink their water every hour.

Support for new moms. To help support mothers and keep infants healthy, the office welcomes breastfeeding onsite. In the case that team members are breastfeeding, they will have access to their own comfortable space, where they can breastfeed privately. Several team members have taken advantage of this.

Fitness. To encourage team members to stay healthy and active, NOW Marketing also covers the cost of gym memberships.

No Smoking. The building is also tobacco-free and a tobacco-free policy has been introduced.
