5 benefits of holistic programs

  1. 1. 5 Benefits Of Holistic Programs From research gathered from organisations it has become apparent that a holistic and lifestyle approach is increasingly becoming more popular. This has become all- important with the increase of cases of burnout, unhealthy employees and hectic lifestyles, especially in more senior posts. In the past, we have to show evidence to organisations on how holistic programs can help increase employee engagement. This is a completely new concept as it mainly focuses on improving people’s lifestyles, physical, mental and emotional well being and a great tool for stress management. There are lots of organisations coming to us with programs that have worked and not worked in a bid to engage employees. Holistic programs have a gentle softly-softly approach, which is proving very popular. For organisations it can lead to increase profits, improved staff retention, reduced turnover and engaged employees. These holistic programs are a win-win for both organisation and employee. Here are some the reasons why, you as employee should choose to be engaged in looking at our work. 1. Improved time management: Time is our biggest asset especially for more senior positions, from research time has become one of the biggest challenges that lead to work/life issues, hectic lifestyles and increase stress levels. 2. Improve physical and mental well-being: Executives take their health for granted, what they fail to recognize is health is your most important asset that we can have. Denis Waitley quotes: “Time and health are two precious assets that we don’t recognize and appreciate until they are depleted”. Studies have found a reduction in blood pressure, cholesterol and stress levels. 3. Achieving peak performance: Studies in employee engagement shows that employees that are engaged outclass their peers. Engaged employees not only work harder but smarter producing outstanding results. This helps to push for promotion, climb the corporate ladder and earn more money. You don’t have to completely devote your life to work compromising
  2. 2. work/life balance. Many that are engaged describe it as “having a fantastic day at work”. If you become fully engaged it allows you to maximise your working day whilst feeling energized and committed. 4. Happiness: We as human beings were created to search for happiness. For some you can be happy but not fully engaged. If you are fully engaged and in tuned then you can achieve fulfilment and happiness. Holistic programs should be based around 5 fundamental elements clarity, balance, growth, impact and connection. I believe once you have achieved these, our overall state of happiness increases. 5. Better home life: “I have work life and home life, which never mix” Well that’s Bulls**t. You can’t live two separate lives, what affects you personally will have a knock on effect professionally, making you become disengaged. Our holistic programs have found that employees that are fully engaged at work are also engaged outside of work. Choosing to be engaged allows us to experience better time management, improvements to physical/mental well-being, peak performance, happiness and a better home life. So the bottom line is to be fully engaged you have to make the choice, no one can force us to be engage, your organisation can only set the culture. Only then you can reap the personal benefits that holistic programs have to offer. Do you have any personal benefits and experience of holistic programs that improve employee engagement?
