There's a growing recognition that employee well-being is integral to business success – and it's clear why companies are taking note. Employees who are healthy and engaged show higher rates of job satisfaction and productivity. But that doesn't mean you need to build an on-site gym to encourage better health and stress management.

The Wellness campaign kit was designed to help you build internal campaigns that engage your employees, foster community and encourage a healthy work culture. The campaign ideas outlined in this guide come with customisable assets you can share in a Workplace post to get your organisation talking. Download the Wellness campaign kit here.

Employee feedback, insights & actions

Employee feedback, insights & actions

Honest and transparent communication is essential to building employee loyalty and driving engagement. Use Workplace's Surveys feature to send regular micro-pulse surveys to your organisation. Surveys allow you to gather data and gauge employee engagement all year round. Share the survey results and your next steps to address employee feedback in your all-company group. By being transparent, you ensure that employees know you're not only listening but also acting on what you hear.

Use this customisable template to capture employee feedback and next steps in a visual format you can add as an image to your post.

Encourage healthy work habits

Encourage healthy work habits

Employee burnout affects more than just engagement, it often results in low productivity, low retention and high costs for your business. More importantly, workplace stress can be damaging to employee mental and physical health, and it can spread within the office.

Show your employees you're making employee wellness a priority with a #TipsToRecharge campaign. Share weekly tips on healthy work habits and how to recognise and address burnout. Here are some tips you can use:

  • Tip no. 1: Take your lunch outside
    Whenever possible, try going outside and get some sun during your lunch break. Breathing fresh air and leaving the office for a short while can help with clarity, and it just feels good!
  • Tip no. 2: Take regular breaks
    Many of us are focused on being as productive as possible during our working hours, so we tend to neglect breaks in favour of getting our work done. But taking regular breaks can actually increase productivity and creativity, as long as you do it thoughtfully. Try taking short breaks throughout the day to drink water, walk or eat healthy snacks.
  • Tip no. 3: Set boundaries around your working hours
    Use Workplace's Do Not Disturb feature to silence notifications outside your regular working hours. You can turn on Do Not Disturb for a specific number of hours, or set Do Not Disturb to turn on automatically on specific days and times.
  • Tip no. 4: Let colleagues know when you aren't available
    Use Workplace's Status feature to let your colleagues know when you're away. On desktop, just go to the smiley face icon in the bottom-left corner of your screen. Then, choose an emoji and add some text to describe your status. Some ideas for status text are "On holiday!", "Offline for the night" or "On parental leave".
  • Tip no. 5: Try getting regular exercise
    Regular exercise helps maintain mental fitness and reduce stress. When possible, take time out of your day to exercise; even just a 30-minute walk can go a long way!
    • Encourage employees to connect with one another over fitness goals by creating an open group called "Fitness at [Company name]", and inviting people to share their goals, photos and even to organise group workouts together.

Share employee development opportunities

Share employee development opportunities

Employee wellness isn't just about physical and emotional health. Personal and professional development can contribute to higher engagement, higher employee satisfaction and lower burnout. Use Workplace to promote your existing learning and development (L&D) programmes and develop new ways to share knowledge and highlight employee skill sets.

  • Go live with a subject-matter expert to train dispersed, remote and frontline teams. Viewers can ask questions during the live stream using comments or through live video polls. The video will be automatically posted to your group so anyone who isn't able to view the video in real time can catch up on it later.
    Add this customisable asset to a post to inform employees of the date, time and subject matter of each of your upcoming trainings.

  • Share in-person and online training opportunities via Workplace. Create custom badges for employees who complete training programmes, and encourage them to add new skills to their Workplace profiles.
  • Use Workplace's Learning feature to offer quick, multimedia learning content employees can easily access from their desktop or mobile device.
Reduce stigma and foster an open work culture

Reduce stigma and foster an open work culture

People rarely talk about their personal challenges in the workplace, but when leaders open up about their own experiences, they can help reduce stigma and create a more open and caring workplace culture.

Have a leader share a post or a video with the #OpenUp in your company social group, where they discuss a challenge they've had to work through. Promote that leader's posts in the News Feed to ensure that employees see it. Encourage employees to share their own #OpenUp stories in the group, and offer support and encouragement via comments and reactions.

Add this customisable template image to your leader's #OpenUp post to make it visual and engaging.

You can also create an open group called "Recognition at [Company name]", where you regularly recognise employees for their achievements. Invite people to share nominations for recognition awards in the group as well.

Turn down the noise

Turn down the noise

Notifications are important, they keep you up to date on news from across your organisation. But sometimes, you need to turn down the noise. Workplace makes it easy to modify your preferences, filter and prioritise your notifications. Share these tips to make sure that your employees know how:

  • Go to your notification settings to modify how you receive notifications (email, desktop, mobile) and what you receive notifications about (group activity, tags, comments etc).
  • Go to your Groups page to manage notifications from groups quickly and in bulk.
  • Use your notification filters to narrow down your inbox.
  • Prioritise your most important groups to see them first in your News Feed.

Share self-care strategies

Share self-care strategies

Self-care practices are a great way to manage stress. Share a post in your group, outlining practices such as meditation, yoga, hiking, massages and healthy eating. Then, invite employees to share their own methods of self-care. It's a great way to get employees talking, and it can inspire more people to take up new habits that help alleviate their stress.

Based on some of the practices shared in your group, create open social groups that employees can use to communicate about their self-care practices. Social groups such as "[Company name] runners club" or "[Company name] meditation circle" can help build a network of support and encourage stronger connections across your organisation.
