The Nepal healthcare industry is focused on both mental and physical wellness. Mental health or employee assistance programs have been the primary focus area for most companies in Nepal, but lately corporates there are starting to sign up for physical health programs as well such has chronic disease management or nutrition counseling that can help them with their various needs when it comes down not being healthy enough at work all day long. Below is a list of some of the top wellness programs run by businesses in Nepal:
Mental Health Counseling
Mental health counseling is a necessary tool for every company. The cost of employee turnover due to stress and anxiety can be as much, if not more costly than the salary they were making before becoming sick in regards to productivity loss associated with sickness days taken off work because an individual was too anxious or stressed out from their job.
In the Nepal, over 40% of employees experience some form physical pain such as back or neck pain. Companies offer Physical therapy programs where they can take physiotherapy sessions while at work and/or using office breaks for treatment inside a healthcare facility depending on how severe your condition is.
Yoga or Fitness Classes
There are numerous fitness and yoga organizations in Nepal that advocate these ideas. As a result, fitness sessions are a simple method to increase physical, mental, and social well-being. Fitness exercises aren’t only about working out. Guided meditation lessons might aid you in maintaining a healthy way of life while reducing stress.
Chronic disease management
Diabetics and hypertensives in the workforce can be cured through positive lifestyle changes. Many companies in Nepal offer programs to help employees manage these chronic conditions, which have significant impacts on productivity as well as employee wellbeing.
Women health (PCOS | Fertility)
Employers should focus on women’s health issues. The makeup of the Nepal corporate workforce is nearly 50% female, so it’s important for workplace endeavors like PCOS and fertility treatments to be offered in order for companies today.
The promise of being able to provide affordable healthcare services in Nepal, from the comfort and safety or your home has made telemedicine a hot topic in recent years. With this new technology, you can reduce costs for both patients as well as providers by controlling who comes into contact with their medical records online instead on paper visits at an office setting which are more expensive than ones conducted over video lines.
The impact of tobacco use is so strong that it can be seen in all areas, from employees who are emitting smoke to those inhaling it. Although many people think this only affects smokers and addicts–wrong! Nearly one out four Nepal’s employee could benefit from a cessation program or de-addiction treatment if they needed help quitting their bad habit for good; as an employer you should know how powerful these programs actually are at helping individuals gain control over themselves again through education on the harmful effects cigarettes have long term.
