Employees are the most important part of any business. Promoting and supporting the physical and mental welfare of these employees is not only the right thing to do on a human level, it's the right thing to do for the health of your business.
To that point, the World Health Organization (WHO) has found that for every $1 put into scaled up treatment for common mental disorders, there is a return of $4 in improved health and productivity.
Creating a culture of support goes beyond traditional employee benefits of health insurance and PTO days. Offering tools to help employees be mentally strong and physically active play an important role, too. As does fun! And that’s where a lil bit of merch can go a long way toward creating goodwill with employees.
While May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, any month is the right time to launch a health and wellness program and show your employees that you’re aware and that you care.
To get you started, we curated nine products that not only encourage mental health, regular fitness and good nutrition but also look sublime with your logo. Ready to show your employees that they work for a conscientious and caring company? Let’s get your corporate health and wellness program started now.

While supporting employees’ health and wellness is the right thing to do personally, it’s also the right thing to do for your bottom line.
The Great Resignation has taken a toll on employee retention. Most everywhere you go, businesses are short staffed. And mental health is a major contributing factor.
According to a JobSage survey, more than 1 in 4 employees have quit a job for the sake of their mental health, and nearly 2 in 5 employees said work had the worst impact on their mental health, second to finances (42%). Additionally, 1 in 5 say their company doesn’t do enough for their mental health.
Mental health also plays a significant role in employee productivity. A WHO-led study estimates that depression and anxiety disorders cost the global economy $1 trillion each year in lost productivity.
Any steps that employers can take to create a more supportive environment that improves overall employee health, wellness and happiness is just smart business. There are lots of ways to create corporate health and wellness programs to meet the needs of employees while being true to the company culture. And there are just as many ways to incorporate branded merchandise into these initiatives so they’re enjoyable, engaging and fun.
