Working for an employer in Pennsylvania that you care about and feel appreciated by can make a tremendous difference in your motivation to get up and go to work each day. Your employer should also provide the necessary means for you and your coworkers to be safe while performing job-related responsibilities. At the Law Office of Richard F. Maffett, we are experienced in helping injured employees to overcome the aftermath of their work-related accident. 

While it may seem unrelated at first thought, an employee wellness initiative can actually be highly advantageous for you. If your employer has established and implemented such a program, you and your coworkers may be more motivated to follow protocols designed to promote safety and responsibility. While such a program will vary from company to company, some of the components it may include according to Forbes include the following: 

  • Workshops or training that address unique challenges including anxiety and depression.  
  • Competitions or initiatives that encourage physical activity and frequent movement throughout your shift.  
  • Educational seminars that teach you and your coworkers about healthy eating habits and the importance of exercise and sleep.  
  • Reminders to practice positive thinking, optimism and gratitude to help you maintain motivation. 

If your employer has put an employee wellness initiative into place, take advantage of its benefits to help you stay healthier and less prone to injury on the job. By utilizing the resources they have provided, you can better your own well-being and encourage your coworkers to do the same.
