I’ve been giving a lot of thought lately to healthy aging. It seems to me that most employers pay lip service to having healthy employees by providing sick leave, health and dental insurance, maybe providing gym or other exercise passes or discounts. But one area that seems to be missing is education and support for optimal health and wellness and reasons and guidance on the best way to use these health perks. There are often conflicts in how the stress of a job will undermine all of the health support employees receive through leave and benefits. There is also the issue of working in a supportive environment that encourages employee loyalty. I don’t know if loyalty was ever a tactic that employers regularly used to bolster their business success, but it certainly seems to me that there should be some way to work towards that direction. Employers particularly seem to forget how much influence their front line employees have on their customer satisfaction. It is always about the bottom line. A happy, healthy employee is going to support a happy, healthy business.
