Wellness programs at the workplace, as we all know, are crucial to ensuring the wellbeing and health of the employees in an organization’s workplace. But today’s wellness programs have their own unique challenges. This is a kind of challenge that has never been faced by HR in the past. What is so different about today’s workplace wellness?
We have the Millennials entering the workplace. So, why should this fact make workplace wellness a different matter altogether? Well, for the first time ever, we have as many as five different generations working side by side at the same workplace! This is the sheer novelty of the current workplace scenario.
The Millennials, and all
While the Millennials may dominate the workplace in the near future -they currently make up about a third of the workforce and will comprise nearly half of the workforce by 2020- the previous generations are still very much around and are yet to fully phase out. This places the US workforce at a unique position where there are as many as five distinct generations working with each other.
This brings us to the crux of one of the challenges facing HR: designing a workplace wellness program that fits all these five different generations. To devise a blanket program makes no sense. So, what kind of workplace wellness strategies should companies devise?
