Business Wellness Program Benefits: How They Help You

Business Wellness Program Benefits

HWNCC is a driving force that connects wellness practitioners with business professionals to cultivate mutually beneficial relationships. It’s important for businesses to know how important these practitioners are to their businesses and employees. 

There are infinite business wellness program benefits that can help your business AND your employees.

So, how can a wellness program help companies?

First, Wellness programs encourage exactly that, wellness. Implementing a wellness program, whether through benefit providers or seeking a wellness provider to run it for your company, encourages employees to seek their best health. Be it exercising more, learning to relieve stress through guided meditation or participating in acupuncture, employees are empowered to invest in their health at work as well as at home.

Healthier lifestyles lead to healthier employees. Seeking to maintain and encourage health and wellness means that employees start to listen better to their bodies and take care of them. Healthier foods, more movement and better stress management have a huge ROI when it comes to employee output. Workers are sick less and more productive at work when their physical selves are taken care of.

Creating a robust wellness program also means making the workday more flexible. Making time during the day for employees to take a short meditation break, or having a room dedicated to yoga, gives workers what they need to succeed at work. It might take a little time, but the benefits of healthy and productive employees will meet and exceed company goals and expectations.

Finally, wellness programs create engagement between employees, management and even between practitioners. An engaged workforce shares ideas, creativity and they make meaningful connections. This creates a community that not only cares about each other, they care about the work they do. Feeling cared also boosts loyalty as well as work ethic. Creating an environment of connection means greater connection to career and better job performance.

While adopting a full-scale wellness program may seem like a huge change for companies, the benefits can be immense. Healthier and happier employees are the best investment to help any company grown and thrive.

Reciprocity in Business: Why It Works

business reciprocity

As alternative medicine is on the rise, practitioners are finding a somewhat easier path to acquiring life-long clients and growing their practices. With the help of HWNCC, mutually beneficial relationships are built by introducing practitioners and corporate experts to support and encourage cross-spectrum growth. However great a growing business may be, many professionals are missing out on one key element of building a business – reciprocal relationships.

This is useful for business owners and practitioners looking to develop professional relationships. In particular, those heading out to any health and wellness events:

You have to give to get.

This may sound counter-intuitive but giving something of value to a potential business relationship will help build trust is between your two enterprises. For example: If you’ve found a great marketing company and you want to create a positive relationship, freely send a couple clients their way. Likewise, that marketing company can give free tips to increase website traffic. These actions build trust and care between the two companies and spawn a new relationship.

It’s not cheapening your brand to give something for free, whether client referrals or services.

On the contrary, giving something of value attracts more future business. On the corporate end, extending steeply discounted or even free services to a fellow business not only helps them but will cause them to feel indebted and more willing to give you future business. A mutually beneficial “partnership” is created and both of your businesses grow.

Without reciprocity, there is unbalance.

In some cases, reciprocity is ignored between businesses. This is a loss for both companies. When one business extends a “gift” to another, the same action should be repeated by the other. When businesses don’t return the favor, relationships are stunted. The non-reciprocal business doesn’t grow, and the limited good-will it receives from companies will quickly dry-up as their reputation becomes sullied. Growth becomes halted, which is bad for business. Don’t be the company that doesn’t return the favor.

The bottom line:

While business reciprocity might seem like a foreign concept, it’s vitally important to business growth on all sides. Giving freely paves the way for future and even lucrative business transactions.

Do’s and Don’ts of Networking | Successful Networking Strategies

networking strategies

Every health & wellness expo gives practitioners an opportunity to reach out and meet new colleagues. These events are perfect for introducing and being introduced, making acquaintances and strengthening existing relationships. For wellness practitioners, this is the perfect opportunity to widen the networking circle. When heading out for an expo, meeting, fair or event, it’s important to implement these networking strategies and remember to avoid others when increasing your network.

Do: Be confident!

That’s right, confidence is key. You are a wellness practitioner and you are good at what you do. You are worth knowing and you are looking to create mutually beneficial relationships to further your career and help others further their own. Let that show.

Don’t: Be overbearing.

Being confident is one thing but being overbearing and too direct will lessen your chances of being added to valuable networking circles. Know your worth and play it cool.

Don’t: Be unprofessional.

Nothing gives the wrong impression like unprofessional behavior. Be sure you present a professional appearance. Practice good posture and make eye contact. Professional people have amazing networks, so be that person.

Do: Follow through.

When a new colleague expresses interest in your business, show them more. Set up meetings, lunches, times when you can build a relationship and share ideas and business. Keep your commitments and follow through on invitations.

Do: Offer your help.

Everyone is looking to build their business and practice and sometimes that means you may think primarily about your own business needs. Take some time to offer help to those you meet. There may be something your practice can do to help a colleague. This is a fantastic way to build relationships and earn future business.

Do: Always take that opportunity.

Just because someone you meet has a different specialty than you do doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from networking with each other. Always look for opportunities to network with anyone who is willing.

Don’t give up! Networking events can be frustrating at times. If you find yourself ready to leave, don’t. Get out there and keep working. You will build the network you want but you will have to work for it.

Have a plan, set your date and get out there and build a powerful network.
