Wellness entrepreneur and Director of Well-being at hasta World, Dylan Salamon, shares three tips for World Well-being Week, which employers can implement right now. These zero cost suggestions are proven to have an immediate impact on your employees’ well-being:
Team movement sessions
A daily 10-minute desk-based movement and stretch class is a fun activity with zero entry barriers for everyone to enjoy company-wide. This can be led via Zoom or in person.
Weekly culture check-in
Ask your staff every Friday how the company culture has been over the last week. Focus one week at a time, and you will slowly but surely see a dramatic shift in employees’ emotional well-being by creating an environment of transparency and change.
Encourage all employees to have three litres of water a day. You could incentivise this or provide refillable bottles with hourly consumption reminders.
Dylan Salamon has always had a passion for well-being. Starting his career in corporate PR, he soon realised that there was a fundamental conflict between his core beliefs and the work he was doing. A decade later, with many successful well-being businesses behind him (e.g. ‘Down to flow escapes yoga retreats), he co-founded industry pioneering well-being events company hasta World.
‘Well-being is a journey; it is not a one-size-fits-all tick box exercise for companies to implement just because they need to. The last 18 months have pushed everyone’s mental and physical health to a new extreme, and therefore we decided to place well-being at the centre of our business,’ notes Salamon.
hasta provides the corporate world with a range of experts in niche areas of well-being to curate an offering that is carefully tailored to the client’s needs. Ranging from nutrition to digital health, hasta covers all aspects of wellness.
Salamon adds: ‘It has been the toughest year of my existence, and there is a fine line between building a successful organisation and taking care of people. To stay true to our founding principle of well-being, we do weekly check-ins with all employees. As leaders, this allows us to identify learnings and also celebrate the areas where we are thriving. I would highly recommend that every employer do this -it is the fastest way to ascertain how your employees are feeling.’
hasta’s offering includes wellness days and nutritional, mindfulness, and diversity workshops. For more information, you may send them an email.
