A Brief Blog Profile: Corporate Wellness Insights

by Thomas Hynes


The Corporate Wellness Insights blog doesn't espouse wellness in the workplace out of the goodness of their heart. (Though, surely that's part of it.) The thinking is far more strategic. The logic holds that if employees feel good and taken care of, they will then perform better in their official capacities. Employees who are rested and healthy will be more productive.  It's not charity so much as it is an investment. And a smart investment at that.

Think about it. If your business were dependent on cars, you'd have the cars taken care of, right? Taking care of people shouldn't be such a revolutionary concept. Here they discuss how providing employees with a small device to help track physical activity helped to see increases in such behavior. In other words, when people could see how inactive they were, they got active. In this post, they offer some other suggestions on workplace wellness, such as chair massages. And, in this post they weigh in (pun intended) on Bloomberg's proposed large soda ban.

Corporate Wellness Insights is actually a lot more than a blog. In full disclosure, helping businesses get the most out of their employees through wellness is their business. But, even if your company doesn't hire them, the insights, examples and case studies do a great job of illustrating the benefits of corporate wellness.

Very correct, if employee is healthy then automatically corporate will be more productive.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
