Support employees’ New Year’s resolutions to increase company engagement

January 1st is coming up… you know what that means? 

It’s time to make your New Year’s resolutions!

If you’re like 81% of the population, you might find yourself making a New Year’s resolution every year and then… never really sticking with it. Chances are, your employees might be doing the same thing! 

As an organization, encouraging your employees to follow through with their resolutions can show them you care about their holistic wellbeing, increase company engagement, and reduce turnover. 

How? It’s simple: New Year’s resolutions typically challenge you to become a better version of yourself, increasing your wellbeing along the way. 

The most popular resolutions for 2022 are:

• Living healthier – 23% 

• Personal improvement and happiness – 21%

• Losing weight – 20%

When you support the wellbeing of your company, employees are:

• 69% less likely to search for a new job

• 71% less likely to report experiencing excess amounts of burnout

• 5x more likely to advocate for their company as a place to work

• 3x more likely to be engaged at work

If you’re looking for ways to help your employees get there, we have the perfect solution… Wellbeing as a Service (WaaS), a platform to make your people happy and healthy throughout the year. Within the platform, the integrated “Achievements” feature gives your team the opportunity to set and stick to their personal wellbeing goals! 

With the option to choose from achievements based on mental wellbeing, physical wellbeing, sustainability, and impact, employees can easily find one (or many) to help them achieve their resolutions for the year. As the organizer, you get to choose the achievements your team can pick from. 

Here are some examples:

1. Physical wellbeing

Ironman Triathlon – Run, bike, or swim 100km in one month

2. Mental wellbeing

The Mindfulness Champion – Complete 10 hours of yoga or meditation in one month.

3. Sustainability

Climate Change Week – Complete 100 minutes of sustainable activities in a week. 

Example: Carpool, Walk to work, Bike to work

4. Impact

Random acts of kindness – Complete 100 minutes of kind activities in a week. 

Example: Volunteer, Give a compliment, Cook a meal for a friend

Your team gets the freedom to join and complete as many achievements as they want to!

If you’re looking to build a one-time themed challenge, here’s another idea: 

New Year, New Resolutions challenge!

Challenge yourself and your employees to stick to those New Year’s resolutions by engaging them around gamified activities like this:

🏃Run

🚴‍♀️Bike

🏊Swim

🥗Eat a healthy meal

♻️Recycle

🚮Pick up trash

🪴Garden 

🧘Meditate

With 350+ diverse activities to choose from, the options are endless!

Tip: Before the challenge, survey employees to find out what their New Year’s resolutions are. Chances are, there are correlating activities in atlasGO that you can choose for the challenge. That way, everyone gets to stick to their personal resolutions!

Did you know that, on average, it takes over two months of consistent action to acquire a habit? If you’re opting for a one-time challenge, choosing at least a 3 month duration will help your team turn their resolutions into lasting healthy habits. Otherwise, WaaS encourages them to stick to their healthy habits all year long.
