Don’t have a workplace wellness program? Start one.
Greetings, Ninja!

On a scale of vending machine diet soda to kombucha on tap, how would you rank your workplace’s wellness efforts? Could they use a touch of Ninja resourcefulness to whip them into shape?

It’s worth considering. Colleagues may welcome access to healthy inspirations in the office. And a company wellness program can even be amazing PR for recruiting clients and new talent!

But before you hang the leaderboard, dole out fitness trackers, and unroll yoga mats, carefully think through a couple of important factors — specifically, privacy and inclusivity. Even wellness programs launched with the best of intentions can fall woefully short in these departments, so do your research, check in with the experts, and, of course, don’t forget to hydrate. 💦

Be well,
