Wellness is defined as being more aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. It’s important to remember that wellness is not just about staying healthy, it’s also about reaching your full potential and achieving your goals. This Kitomba University topic focuses on ways to create a workplace environment that supports the mental and physical wellness of everyone who works there.

Creating a happy and healthy workplace

Having happy, healthy employees is crucial to running a successful business. A healthy and supportive workplace can significantly increase performance, lower costs, reduce employee turnover and boost morale.
