Workplace wellness has seen an explosion in popularity. For company owners, incorporating wellness programs into the workplace has been integral to competing for top talent, and for office owners, workplace wellness programs have become important to competing for the top tenants. Workplace wellness has three pillars: physical, cognitive and emotional wellness. All three contribute to creating a better workplace with a happier and healthier workforce, according to Nick Greenko of Tangram Interiors, a design firm that has been active in incorporating workplace wellness programs in offices.

“Silicon Valley companies, such as Google and Amazon, have formed a culture that gives employees more power than ever before to choose what they want in their workplace environments,” Greenko, CFO at Tangram Interiors, tells GlobeSt.com. “While most employers may not be able to afford onsite dry cleaning or daily yoga classes, they can offer employees peace of mind in knowing that they care about their wellbeing in other, less costly ways. For example, height adjustable benching, healthy snacks and access to nature or biophilia within the office show an employer’s care for their employees’ health and wellness. A lack of attention to wellness can cost a company their employees or potential talent. The environment and the “perks” play a huge role in attracting and retaining employees, so wellness with its many iterations is no longer an option, it’s a necessity.”
