01 Mar / Peer affirmation leads to workplace wellness
As more companies seek to integrate preventive wellness into the workplace environment, they are often struggling to find programs that engage and retain the attention of their employees. One of the critical keys to a successful workplace wellness initiative has proven to be Peer Affirmation.
Speaking to Konbini, FIX Founder, Mike Tinney, explains…
“Putting people onto teams means your efforts help not just yourself, but others,” he said. “This leads to peer affirmation moments. Accumulating these successes inside of a game experience creates a sense of ownership and accomplishment that is harder to leave behind and disconnect from.”
The best part is that in addition to building a healthier workplace, team-based wellness programs build stronger personal connections and and a more productive office.
Consider exercising with your spouse. A recent study showed that 43% of couples who exercise separately drop out within the first year of joining a gym, whereas only 6.3% of couples who go to the gym together drop out in the same period.
