Gifting in employee wellness programs

The most valuable asset to any company is its employees. And one of the best ways to care for these individuals is to prioritize their wellness.

When someone works for an employer that prioritizes their mental, physical, and spiritual wellness, they’re more likely to be happier, loyal to the company, and more productive.

While there are many ways to support your employees’ wellness, there’s one thing that remains true: Individuals have different needs and definitions when it comes to self-care and holistic wellness.

A great way to help team members take the steps they need in order to improve their mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing is to arm them with tools to help them achieve their goals. That’s where gifting comes in!

To help ensure everyone has the tools they need, give them the gift of choice. We’ve made it even easier by curating three wellness gift collections: Morning Rituals, New Year’s Resolutions, and Unwind. Keep reading for a peek into each of these collections, including highlights of some of the small businesses featured!

A woman doing yoga on a Halfmoon yoga mat

Small business maker feature: Halfmoon

In 1983, Halfmoon founder Beth McTavish was walking by the Ganges River in Varanasi, India, when she saw a group of yogis practicing at the water’s edge. She was mesmerized by their intent, their focus, and the stillness of yoga in the midst of noise, chaos, and color. When she returned home, still captivated, she began to practice Iyengar yoga. Six years later, Beth, a talented creative and, by now, a devoted yogi, began making her own props. A red seat belt became a yoga strap. Rolls of cotton batting turned into sturdy bolsters. And just like that, Halfmoon was born. Halfmoon is a sister brand to B Yoga and part of Mindful Collective Co.
