Your Desk is a Deathtrap

Did you know that June is National Safety Month? It's a great time to address leading causes of injury in the workplace. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis accounted for 380,600, or one-third, of days away from work in 2013, according to the National Safety Council.

Workplace wellness programming is here to help. Take it from Sharon Viveiros, Vice President and Director of Operations at Commonwealth Insurance Partners, a wholesale/broker striving to provide successful solutions for retail insurance agents by utilizing experience, expertise, and strong relationships with partner carriers.

"With the amount of stress life throws you day-to-day both professionally and personally, having an on-site wellness program gives the employees a time to regroup and feel rejuvenated through yoga. Many of us have never been to a yoga class.  We as a company are pleased to be able to offer this to our employees.

"One benefit I’ve seen after the first few weeks is that during those stressful work weeks, everyone now looks forward to our class on Thursdays and it creates a lighter atmosphere throughout the office.  Everyone at Wainhouse Wellness has been a pleasure to work with and our instructor makes the class motivational and relaxing!"

Wainhouse Wellness offers one-time workshops, weekly yoga classes, and other customized programming for your office. Email to schedule.
