Beyond Basic Benefits: Understanding 360 Corporate Wellness

Last updated on 1 Dec 2023

Wellness is the new corporate currency, and all signs indicate that it isn't simply a fleeting trend but a profound evolution in defining and understanding professional satisfaction and retention. Just ask your employees, or take our Wellhub Work-Life Wellness 2024 report for instance. We found that 93% of employees value their wellbeing just as much as their paycheck. This revelation comes from a survey encompassing 5,144 full-time employees, all aged at least 18, across 9 countries.

There are not only high expectations when it comes to workplace benefits in general, but a fundamental necessity to cater to the individual. Not all benefits will appeal to everyone, and these days, employers must find better ways to meet the changing needs of their workforce. Using a holistic, 360-degree approach, Wellhub enables companies to cater to all colours of the wellness spectrum with maximum impact, without the hassle of juggling an excessive amount of wellness partners. In turn, this kind of comprehensive offering has a direct effect on an employee's ongoing relationship with your business.

Loyalty no longer simply lies in the hands of salary or title, but in a holistic sense of wellbeing. This demand isn’t being made by a few employees either, but by the overwhelming majority. The same Wellhub wellness report found that an astonishing 87% of professionals would rethink their commitment to a company if it didn't prioritise wellbeing.

Debbie Westover, Director of Benefits at SoFI, echoed these sentiments by sharing their experience with Wellhub: “As a result of SoFi’s rapid growth, we’re becoming a more diverse workforce – and everybody has unique needs. It’s very important that our [benefits] programme speaks to those needs and is able to support [our] people no matter where they are in their life journey. I want everybody to participate as much as possible on all the different programmes that we have. I think it just breeds loyalty not only to Wellhub, but also to SoFi”. 

How Wellhub Fuels 360-Degree Wellness

The relationship between work-life balance, employee productivity, and wellness programmes is now undeniable. As our workdays and personal lives become increasingly interwoven, especially in the era of hybrid working, the need to create pockets of wellness within each day grows. But because the wellness spectrum is diverse and is never a one-size-fits-all deal, a more tailored approach, rather than generalised initiatives like annual yoga retreats or generic gym memberships, is needed. 

Genuine wellbeing is deeply personal and, therefore, in the corporate environment, requires a degree of adaptability. Which is why we are home to over 50,000 gyms, studios, professionals and digital wellness resources. Each is designed and curated to nurture all aspects of the body and mind, accommodating everyone from beginners to seasoned experts across all wellness spaces. An all-inclusive offering such as this allows corporations to address the needs of the community as a whole, while ensuring that every individual has the opportunity to engage on their own terms. This includes wellness partners like LesMills+,F45 and Bannatyne who offer a range of fitness programmes, Thrive Global, which helps to address burnout and create a sense of purpose,Headspace, which can foster greater relaxation through meditation, and many more options to cultivate a sense of wellbeing.

But beyond that, we’re committed to helping your employees and their extended families enrol and follow through with their chosen wellness journeys. With Wellhub+, added benefits and resources offer a greater ROI, making it a truly effortless experience with streamlined onboarding, communications, hosting of wellness events and a greater wealth of resources. This means your employees not only get the best out of Wellhub, but you’ll get the best out of them. The numbers don't lie; the Wellhub Work-Life 2024 Wellness report found that 90% of companies tracking ROI saw positive wellness returns.

It’s simple, because our wellbeing is at the centre of our lives, we need it to thrive. Unlike most wellness offerings, Wellhub nurtures all aspects of wellbeing: Emotional, occupational, intellectual, environmental, social, spiritual and of course, the physical. Leaving no stone unturned and empowering your workforce to address the wellness needs that are most pressing, most exciting or even most comfortable for them, at their desired pace. By cultivating a broader scope of wellbeing, employers gain productivity and save on healthcare costs, employee retention and absenteeism. That’s the beauty of a 360 approach.
