There is no such thing as one size fits all.

As an HR leader, you know that every employee is unique. Different job responsibilities, backgrounds, preferences, and work sites make it extremely difficult to find one size fits all workplace wellness program.

More than ever, it’s vital for companies to view their employees as investments in the future success of their organisation. That means taking time to recognise them, value their contributions, and reward their efforts. So how do you find workplace wellness programs that fit all types of employees?

Take these four different employees for example:


While each of these employees has different needs, the right engagement strategy can check all the boxes. An a la carte or voluntary benefits plan can be a low-cost solution that helps employers overcome the complicated and expensive challenges of meeting diverse employee needs.

So what workplace wellness can you encourage at your organisation?

Voluntary benefit programs like flex time, childcare, and mentoring programs allow the employer to offer a broad palette of benefits without adding additional costs to the company. Gym programs through reimbursements or in-house spaces have also demonstrated clear benefits to employees and employers such as increased morale and better overall productivity.

You have the unique opportunity to move beyond a promise and take real actions that can positively impact the health, happiness, and productivity of every employee – ultimately yielding a stronger, more competitive organisation.
