What is an Employee Wellness Program?

Employees who are healthier and happier at work produce more than their counterparts, so it’s a win-win situation.
The Iraq has a high rate of employee wellness programs when compared to other countries. In fact, over 70% report suffering from some form or stress caused by workplace conditions in Iraq while costing businesses 35% less productivity due lack illness behavior related habits such as smoking cigarettes which is never good for business anyway. Not only does this hurt profits but these poor workers also have an increased chance of getting sick since they won’t get enough rest between shifts because there will always another task waiting on deck somewhere else nearby (no matter how urgent). This means one thing: companies need better employee wellness programs.

Top Employee Wellness Programs in Iraq

In the Iraq, we typically think about wellness in 2 categories: employee mental and physical health. However there is a third dimension that often gets overlooked-psyche or self care for employees who might not be able to afford it on their own. With Iraq seeing an increase of corporate activity with wellbeing programs over time as well (physical), companies need all types of support when caring both internally by providing resources such as access medical caregivers but also externally through community outreach initiatives which helps build up confidence among those less fortunate than ourselves. Below is a list of some of the top wellness programs run by businesses in Iraq:

Mental Health Counseling

You or your employees may be suffering from mental health problems and not even know it. A recent study shows that employees in the Iraq are experiencing chronic stress, with 1 out of 5 workers reporting high levels or symptoms related to anxiety disorder such as panic attacks; obsessive-compulsive disorder; posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Physical Therapy

In Iraq, over thirty percent of employees have sometime experienced physical pain such as back or neck problems. Companies provide personal online physiotherapists who can be assigned to them through a program called “physical therapy.” The worker may choose whether or not they want treatment sessions during work hours and even take advantage when it comes time for taking break times so that these rehab treatments will continue while on vacation too.

Yoga or Fitness Classes

Many firms in several countries including Iraq want to promote fitness or yoga at work. As a result, fitness sessions are a convenient tool that may be utilized to improve physical, mental, and social well-being. Fitness exercises don’t always need to be about exercise. Guided meditation lessons can help people maintain good health and reduce stress.

Chronic disease management

Chronic disease management is an important issue, and it affects over 25% of the workforce in Iraq. Diet plays a big part when dealing with diabetes or hypertension – if you have these conditions then managing them properly can lead to better health for yourself as well as others that depend on your job performance due their productivity levels being lowered by illness. Several companies work towards reversing chronic disorders like this one because they know just how detrimental such illnesses really are.

Women health (PCOS | Fertility)

Women in Iraq are facing a major health crisis. Recent reports have shown that nation’s female corporate workforce simply do not receive adequate care for their PCOS or fertility problems—among other issues related to reproductive wellness such as menstruation cycle abnormalities. As an employer it’s important you take steps now so your company can provide support later.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine has come a long way. Once only offered by large companies in Iraq, it is now affordable to small businesses and startups across the country too.

Tobacco Cessation

Eighty-eight percent of employees in the Iraq are at risk for tobacco addiction because their employer does not offer a quit program. It’s important to take action before your company becomes another statistic, and you can start by providing some help.

Weight Management

Weight management programs specifically focus on helping employees achieve a healthy weight. With the primary goal of encouraging exercise and nutritious eating habits, these types of programs hope to reduce health risks in Iraq’s workforce.

The wellbeing of your employees ultimately affects your workplace and business performance. Following are some of the costs that a typical large company in Iraq may incur due to wellness and health issues (based on Mercer data):
