6 Tips to Create a Culture of Wellness at Work

April 18, 2019

It is widely known that incorporating wellness practices into your workplace can not only lead to happier and healthier employees, but also more productive employees. This is because when people are healthier, they need fewer sick days and are better able to focus on work while they’re in the office, rather than feeling ill or having chronic aches and pains. All in all, employees feel better and the company saves money. Makes sense, right?

Okay, this information is all well and good (pun intended), but how does a company actually create a culture of wellness at work? What are some practical tips that an organization can implement in order to make wellness a clear priority? To help you get started down the right path, we’ve put together six tips to help you integrate wellness into the workplace today.

February 28, 2019

Did you know that according to the Canadian Mental Health Association, one in five Canadians will experience mental health issues in any given year? That’s a solid 20 per cent of people living in our country, which is pretty significant.

Last month, the #BellLetsTalk campaign ran once again to raise awareness for mental health and to work towards ending the stigma surrounding these illnesses.

February 21, 2019

Here at Fitneff, we’re proud to have developed meaningful relationships with a wide variety of suppliers that are also trying to integrate more movement into the daily lives of North Americans. KidsFit is one such supplier! They design and create kinesthetic classroom furniture to help get kids moving at a younger age, and we’ve had the pleasure of working with them for quite some time now.

Late last year, we had the opportunity to help facilitate a donation of one of KidsFit’s pieces, the Fully Recumbent Junior Bike, to the Steadward Centre in Edmonton. We recently caught up with Scott Forrester, a manager at the Steadward Centre, to tell us a little bit more about the programs that they offer and how this bike will make a difference moving forward.
