Kipsuvians Minding Their Own Wellbeing

 

The focus on wellbeing and mindfulness is only increasing amongst all generations and regions as research continues to show the benefits of keeping personal health top of mind. In a survey conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, they found 87% (of the hundreds of companies surveyed) said they were committed to the wellness of their employees. 73% offer some kind of wellness program and 16% provide financial incentives to encourage wellness. Wellness programs can consist of many variables including gym discounts, nutrition classes, onsite exercise facilities or classes, weight loss programs, wellness newsletter, lifestyle coaching and much more. With wellbeing initiatives growing in the workplace, Kipsu recently launched its first wellness group! The Kipsu wellness group is eagerly planning events and creating space to focus on health and mindfulness for the whole office.
