With an emphasis on wellness, more and more offices are incorporating wellbeing spaces for employees

According to findings in the 2019 Health and Wellness Consumer Report, “a focus on healthy living isn’t a fad, it’s a continuous process that people are building their lives around.”

And that extends into the workplace too. We’ve spoken before about how important employee health and happiness is in relation to productivity, and in the modern era, smart employers are placing workplace wellness at the core of their business by recognising the importance of their employees.

Additionally, putting a real emphasis on health and wellbeing allows employers to retain and attract new talent, which ultimately benefits their business.

With that in mind, here are 5 examples of companies that have created office health and wellness zones.

1. Google

At Google’s Silicon Valley campus, they’ve created dining areas that include features like juice bars. There are also on-site gyms and free fitness classes, as well as a range of intramural sports.

Google’s famous “nap pods” also allow employees to go for a little sleep the workplace – recharging their batteries throughout the day.

2. Unilever

Unilever has created a Wellbeing Zone designed to provide employees with a space for mindfulness, meditation, rest and recovery. The zone is split into different sections, each focusing on a different aspect of health. For example, the Movement Zone accommodates things like yoga and massages and there’s another section that stocks free healthy snacks.

3. Missguided

UK fashion brand Missguided have brought the outside in, with a garden terrace complete with “kindness tree” that incorporates motivational phrases hanging off its branches. Their office also includes a ‘floating’ meeting room, swings, arcade games, ping pong tables and a coffee shop to help create a fun and creative working atmosphere.

4. Microsoft

Microsoft employees have access to features like paid gym memberships as well as facilities on campus such as a spa, sports fields and multiple restaurants.

They’ve also built an on-site “Microsoft Living Wellness Health Center” that has a pharmacy, and space for employees to get treatments such as acupuncture and massages.

5. Nike

Being a sports brand it makes sense that Nike would place some emphasis on employee health. That’s why they’ve incorporated a climbing wall and running track into their offices in Oregon, US.
