Workplace wellness taken to a new level!
My co-workers and I recently experienced something at the office none of us ever expected. I mean, this type of thing typically takes place in a private room, with relaxing music and, if you’re lucky, a little aromatherapy!
That’s right; I’m talking about a massage! As a way to show their appreciation for our hard work and dedication to the company, Brenda and Sandy surprised us with a 15 minute chair massage. Their strategic timing — during our monthly billing process — couldn’t have been better!
During our fifteen minutes of relaxation, the massage therapist seated each of us in a special chair and used techniques that focused on the upper part of our bodies – neck, head, shoulders, back and arms. And as we found out first-hand, a chair massage in the workplace:
- Relaxes tense muscles
- Lowers stress and anxiety levels
- Restores a calm mind and feeling of well-being
- Increases morale
- Motivates employees
- Confirms the boss’ belief that happy employees are productive employees
We are always telling our clients that focusing on employee satisfaction brings benefits to their customers – and therefore their bottom line. A recent Kansas State University study found that when employees have high levels of psychological well-being and job satisfaction, they perform stronger and generate better outcomes.
I think I can speak for everyone when I say we all walked away feeling renewed! Now who couldn’t argue we work for the best company in central Ohio?
