Wellness at Work
The American spa team recently moved offices, a project that entailed hundreds of boxes, countless hours, and lots of work. Now that we are in the new space, it is great to see how we are making the new location our own. Poster-size blowups of our favorite covers line the hallways, and each member of the staff has added his or her own personal touches to the new space. Our parent company, Questex Media, also just completed renovations on a lounge area for employees. It gives us a place to enjoy our lunch hour away from our desks, computers, and ringing phones.
This got me thinking, whether it's a publishing company or a spa, creating a pleasant work environment for the staff means happier, more productive employees. I'd like to hear how you are working to promote the wellness of your team. What are some of the things you do to create a nice work environment? Send me your thoughts and ideas, and I'll print them in a future letter.
