What 4 Companies Highly Rated for Wellness Do Differently

Wellness is about body and mind

For our Ask a Recruiter series, we asked a HR consultant Amy Robertson to tell us about some innovative approaches she’s seen companies taking to mental health. This is what she said:

  • On-site health clinics that include individual and family counseling (not just treatment for a common cold or strep throat).
  • Workplaces that emphasize autonomy and asynchronous communication. This will honor each person’s ability to work in a way that’s best for them and enable the most success.
  • Companies who value and encourage activities outside work. For example, encourage hobbies and celebrate them within the workplace by sponsoring get-togethers on the topic. Employees can share more of what makes them interesting and, in turn, create a stronger fabric of community within the workplace.
  • Wellbeing programs that offer classes within the workplace on stress management, time management, and mindfulness. These provide a holistic view of wellness and coping techniques to avoid triggers for anxiety and depression.
