Employee Wellness Tip: How to Beat the Afternoon Slump


Employee wellness has been a hot topic among our clients, especially considering the staggering number of people who are experiencing mental health struggles and burnout recently. Employee wellness is no longer a consideration for employers, but rather a necessity to take care of their employees and, as a result, keep their businesses running smoothly.

An employee’s physical, mental, emotional, and financial well-being directly impacts their work, which has the inevitable ripple effect of impacting coworkers, managers—and even clients. Therefore, their wellness becomes your business. By creating an environment that supports and promotes wellness in the workplace, your business can not only be considered a great place to work, but a place where employees are engaged and thriving.

In our September 2021 article, Employee Retention Strategy: Promote Wellness in the Workplace, we offered some ideas to help you encourage wellness in the workplace including some “out of the box” benefits to your employees while promoting a healthier workforce. For instance, you can pay for employee gym memberships, host wellness challenges, or offer relaxation and meditation breaks.

Today, we are spotlighting a different employee wellness tip—how to beat the afternoon slump.
