Top Employee Wellness Programs in Nigeria

The recent trend across Nigeria is to focus on employee wellness. The two key dimensions of this are mental health or assistance programs as well as physical activities that can help with chronic diseases, such nutrition counseling for example. Employee wellness programs like fitness programs, smoking cessation programs, Nutrition counseling, etc. are being implemented in Nigeria. Below is a list of some of the top wellness programs run by businesses in Nigeria:

Mental Health Counseling

Mental health counseling is essential to the well-being of employees and has been shown in scientific studies as effective for stress reduction. Employee assistance programs (EAPs), will help you run therapy sessions with their paid professionals who can offer guidance on how much time off would be best suited for employees, according to personal circumstances or business needs such as job responsibilities, location issues etc.. For example if somebody lives far away from work because commuting takes too long every day then this person may need more days than someone else working close enough where taking public transport isn’t necessary.

Physical Therapy

Employees in the Nigeria have a 30% chance of experiencing physical pain. If you’re an unlucky few that has had it happen to, your company might offer Physical Therapy programs where an online physio can be assigned for extra support onsite at work or home-based sessions available too.
Employees who use these services are able take care their problem areas during office breaks and personal timeframes which helps them get back up faster than before with less assistance needed from medical professionals.

Yoga or Fitness Classes

Yoga or fitness classes are a great way for companies in the Nigeria to encourage healthy living. These can be used as an additional tool that addresses physical, mental and social well-being while not being limited only towards those topics specifically. Guided meditations sessions also provide benefits such as managing stress levels which makes them valuable during any workday.

Chronic disease management

In the Nigeria, over 25% of all workforce suffer from some kind or another chronic condition. These conditions are becoming more common as Nigerians live longer and healthier lifestyles; which means they can be managed through positive changes in diet and exercise routine such that employee productivity remains high throughout their working lives.

Women health (PCOS | Fertility)

25 years ago, women in Nigeria made up only 16% of the corporate workforce. Today that number is increasing constantly. As a result many organizations have adopted programs with female specific goals like PCOS & fertility treatment which are offered by some employers today.
It’s great news for Nigerian companies because more than half (48%) feel their organization needs improved support when it comes caring about employee health issues including those affecting females specifically; this includes both physical condition as well emotional stability.


For employers who want to save money, telemedicine is the way to go. With prices that are more affordable than in-person visits and reliable access at any time day or night, it’s no wonder this form of healthcare has been on an upswing for years now especially in Nigeria.
