Workplace Wellness Programs at SunCloud Health’s Intensive Outpatient Program
Workplace efficiency and good mental health – often the two are seen as unrelated, despite the important challenges a person is tasked with juggling on a daily basis along with leading a fulfilling personal live. Leading mental health experts are beginning to point out that these things do not live in independent silos in our minds. They need to be thought of within the context of our overall well-being. Today’s typical workplace wellness programs cover basic medical treatments, physical therapies and gym memberships in an effort to keep employees fit and productive but many mental health experts are starting to see this is not enough to produce effective, well rounded employees and the wrong climate for developing leaders in the workplace.
“Wellness is about far more than offering the occasional onsite Weight Watchers meeting. Wellness goes beyond even providing disease management programs… for the tech company, the very concept of wellness has evolved to include all aspects of employees’ well-being—from their finances to their social life.”
