How internal messaging can encourage healthy habits this winter

Communicators spend a lot of time promoting health and wellness in the external community. Remember that winter can be difficult for employees, too.

The months when employees are likeliest to call in sick are January and February.

The secret to keeping employees healthy this winter may lie with your internal communication.

An infographic from Limeade, a corporate wellness technology company, reminds PR and marketing professionals to share health tips with staffers.

Communicators, for example, may suggest that employees:

  • Boost their immune systems and energy by eating more fruits and vegetables

  • Organize outdoor activities such as skiing, snowshoeing or ice skating

  • Take the stairs instead of using elevators

  • Count steps with activity trackers and upload results to wellness programs or intranets

  • Add healthful snacks and nutritious options to cafeteria menus and vending machines

Check out the infographic below to see how to support employee well-being this winter.
