The health and well-being of employees is always higher on the priority list. 10 to 2 years ago an employee was happy that he / she had a job (and therefore income). Nowadays, due to the high demand for excellent staff on the labor market, a lot of attention is paid to offering a good personnel policy to attract these employees.
Taking good care of the employees is a must. Organizations are increasingly working on the health, involvement and development of their employees. In addition to the fact that this attracts excellent staff, this also yields a great deal during the employment relationship: less absenteeism, more enjoyment of work and more productivity. Taking good care of the staff is therefore interesting for both employee and employer. Especially in a society where we have to work longer and longer, sustainable employability is the key factor.
The changed situation on the labor market also provides a different absenteeism policy: more and more curation is being transferred to prevention. People no longer wait until someone has (physical) complaints before taking action. Action is taken in advance to prevent complaints and to ensure that employees are vital and fit for the job. The implementation of a future-proof HRM policy and the deployment of the right HRM interventions are the basis for this. It is about providing the right tools to stimulate the desired behavior of employees, which contributes to: effective vitality management and sustainable employability.
We are convinced that employees must be unknowingly supported to display the desired behavior. People are creatures of habit and do not like to do what they are told to do. Behavior must be changed subtly, unconsciously. We call that nudging.
- Saying someone that he / she has to work more standing up has less effect than ensuring that he / she keeps getting notifications and changing position with the push of a button. This is possible with our innovative IntelliDesk system.
- Encouraging employees to walk for lunch and do exercises at the workplace is less effective than providing them with a desk chair that lets them move without being consciously involved. Backapp Balance Chairs make this possible.
- Having someone change their attitude regularly and therefore creating dynamics in the workplace is difficult if they have no idea how long they are sitting.
That insight is easy to provide with VitaBit sedentary trackers: sensors that the employee carries in the pocket that record how long they sit, stand or walk.
