As they say in Game of Thrones, “Winter is coming…” What does that mean for your business? The two most important things for business wellness in the winter are ensuring that all associates remain healthy and productive. In terms of health in the winter it is important that employees stay hydrated, get enough sleep, and take care of their bodies. This will prevent head colds and other common winter illnesses from plaguing anywhere from one employee to spreading to the entire group. In terms of productivity it is important to remember that the winter is a social time, the same as any other season. The holiday season is amongst us and that means taking time to spend with family. It also could mean time to spend with friends and increase the moral of employees and act as an opportunity to bond. Holiday work parties are a great way to do this, and they don’t have to be the cliche office party shown in movies. Meeting at a restaurant of bar to jus hang with colleagues during the winter months can be a great way to encourage a team sentiment. This leads to better productivity in the winter season and seasons to follow.
