A Happy and Healthy Workplace in 2023: Delivering Employee Wellness Through Automation

Employee burnout, boreout, and the Great Resignation are terms being bandied about at the moment. Ignore them at your peril!

Employee burnout, boreout, and the Great Resignation are terms being bandied about at the moment. Ignore them at your peril!

  • A study by the Harvard Business Review found that 75% of US workers have experienced burnout at work, with over half experiencing it more than once.


  • Burnout is estimated to cost companies up to $190 billion per year in healthcare costs, absenteeism, and lost productivity.


  • A study by Udemy found that 43% of American workers experience boredom at work. Bored employees are more likely to make mistakes and have a negative impact on productivity, morale, and engagement.


  • A survey by Monster found that 95% of workers are currently considering changing jobs, with 92% planning to do so in the next 12 months.

Our communication with custom sportswear and promotional products businesses all over the country is highlighting how keen employers are to not be included in the statistics above. But the tricky question is how to boost employee wellness, keep motivation and morale high, and reap the benefits of a happier workplace.

The answer doesn’t lie in mandatory yoga classes (don’t worry, Ethel, nobody’s going to force you to do downward dog with your bad back); it’s time to take a novel approach – automation!


Automation can help you deliver employee wellness in a way that’s easy, efficient, and, most importantly, effective.

Using automation for workplace wellness

1. Automate Your Employee Wellness Program

The first step to using automation for employee wellness is to automate your wellness program. This can include everything from health screenings to fitness challenges to mental health resources. By automating these programs, you can ensure that all employees have access to the resources they need to stay healthy and happy.

💡Top tip: Why not tie your automated employee wellness program to a Brikl redemption store to reward your employees for taking care of themselves? Gamify the experience by giving employees store credits for the hours they’ve put into your wellness program that they can then use to buy branded products and merchandise.

2. Use Wearable and Non-Wearable Technology

Wearable technology is a great way to track employee wellness and encourage healthy habits. From fitness trackers to smartwatches, there are a variety of devices that can help employees stay on top of their health goals. By incorporating wearable technology into your wellness program, you can provide employees with real-time feedback on their progress and motivate them to stay active and healthy.

But you don’t need to cover your employees in health tracking devices and wearables for workplace wellness. Encourage them to use digital tools such as Chrome extensions (we love Noisli here at Brikl) to bring a sense of calm and focus to the working day. And if setting up and managing online stores is part of their daily workload, talk to us about how we can lift that burden off your shoulders. Nothing says wellness like 25 hours saved, on average, per week!

3. Implement a Virtual Wellness Coach

Many employees struggle with staying motivated when it comes to wellness goals. That’s where a virtual wellness coach can come in handy. By implementing a virtual coach, you can provide employees with personalized feedback, goal setting, and accountability. This can be done through a variety of channels, including email, chat, or even a mobile app.

4. Use Automated Reminders

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to employee wellness is getting employees to actually participate in the programs and resources that are available to them. That’s where automated reminders can come in handy. By setting up automated reminders, you can ensure that employees are aware of the wellness programs and resources available to them and are encouraged to participate.

5. Offer Healthy Snacks and Drinks

Finally, it’s important to consider the role of nutrition in employee wellness. By offering healthy snacks and drinks in the workplace, you can encourage employees to make healthier choices throughout the day. This can be done through vending machines or even by providing free healthy snacks and drinks in the break room.

By implementing these automation strategies for employee wellness, you can not only improve the health and happiness of your employees but also increase productivity and reduce healthcare costs for your organization. So why not take advantage of the power of automation and transform your workplace into a happy and healthy environment?
