The Roots of Corporate Wellness

The Roots of Corporate Health & Wellness are the 5 primary indices that impact an employee’s and a company’s health and productivity. The Vendura Wellness roots are:

The Environment

This root of corporate health and wellness has two components that can directly impact a company’s health and productivity. The social environment speaks to the work culture which exists within the workplace, whereas the physical environment speaks to the physical makeup of the workspace a company operates within.


Mental Health and Stress

This root of corporate health is highly impacted by the other roots. Mental health and stress can impact employees in both a positive and negative light. They can also have severe or minor implications to an employee’s over health and performance. This root can include something as minor as stress from project deadlines to as serious as mental illnesses, such as clinical depression.


Physical Activity Behaviours

This root of corporate health encompasses the overall daily activity a person engages in and is not limited to “gym time” or solely focused on exercise. Physical activity includes a person’s transportation habits, hobbies and interests, in addition to workplace activity level.


Nutritional Behaviours

This root of corporate health includes your daily consumption habits of both food and beverages. This root is very closely linked to physical activity and its’ effect on obesity within the workplace. Nutrition needs to be examined, understood and valued from a lifestyle perspective, in order to ensure one consumes their daily dietary needs for all macronutrients (Carbohydrates, Fats and Proteins) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).


Substance Use Behaviours

This root of corporate health accounts for the use of substances including alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Substance use by employees can cause problems at work including after-effects of substance use (hangover, withdrawal), preoccupation with obtaining and using substances while at work or after work. This can lead to increased stress interfering with attention and concentration, and overall affect job performance and contribute to absenteeism, illness, and/or reduced productivity
