Company Wellness that Helps Your Employees and Brand

Company wellness programs and initiatives are prominent among businesses today, with more companies fostering the idea that health and productivity are closely related to one another. There are many different ways to encourage healthy lifestyles through a company wellness program. However, what you may not have thought of is the effect that promotional products and custom apparel can have on the success of your wellness program. Read on to learn more about the effects of promotional products and custom apparel on company wellness programs, and how incorporating these into your wellness program can help employees achieve their wellness goals.Promotional Products that Encourage Participation

There are hundreds of thousands of promotional products out there, many of which are fitness-related and are perfect for using in company wellness programs. Promotional products that can contribute to a healthy lifestyle will not only encourage exercising, but you are more likely to increase the number of participants in your wellness program. There are many different products that you could include in your wellness campaign, such as pedometers, fitness trackers, exercise bands, exercise mats, jump ropes and more. Even items that are not directly fitness related, such as ear buds or mobile accessories, are popular during various fitness activities and will be appreciated by your staff.

Show Support with Custom Apparel

A successful company wellness campaign should support employees, starting with a commitment from your company's leaders. It is important to be supportive both during and after office hours. You can show your support with custom fitness apparel that employees can wear to the gym, during bike rides or while jogging. You can also give away custom apparel that is perfect for lounging around at home after a long and tiring workout. Apparel that is customized to display your brand's program will serve as a reminder that health and wellness doesn't stop after the workout is over. For example, this can help encourage healthy eating and sleeping habits, as well.

Have an Incentive

Hopefully most of your employees will want to participate simply to feel healthier, but if that's not the case, you could offer incentives or prizes to get more people to join in. For example, you could make a competition out of it, either individually or in groups, and offer the winner some type of prize or recognition. One option is to put together a fitness kit that includes a variety of promotional items and custom apparel and have employees compete to win the kit. If you don't want to make a competition out of it, you could simply offer free lunch (from somewhere healthy, of course) on a certain day only for those who participate.
