nib Workplace Wellbeing Calendar

A thriving workforce isn't just about meeting deadlines and achieving targets; it's about fostering a culture of wellbeing that supports employees in their personal and professional lives. That’s why we’ve put together a handy Wellbeing Calendar to help you take a proactive approach to workplace wellness.

For many business leaders and decision makers it can be daunting to know where to start when it comes to workplace wellbeing. Our guide is designed to help make wellbeing an approachable and integral part of your workplace. Every two months there’s a different wellbeing theme to focus on and promote to help your team feel happier and healthier.

In December and January, we reflect on the year's accomplishments and set intentions for the upcoming year, using this time to reset our focus and commit to workplace wellbeing initiatives. In February and March, it’s about finding purpose in our work, promoting employee engagement and happiness. April and May emphasise physical health, encouraging activities that energise and invigorate us.

June and July underscore the importance of a supportive work environment, which can foster a culture of wellness. August and September prioritise relationships, recognising the value of connections in promoting overall wellbeing. Finally, October and November focus on mental wellness, highlighting the importance of self-care and mindfulness.

We’ve also highlighted the key holidays, awareness and cultural days throughout the year which you can celebrate with your team – including International Women’s Day, Mental Health Awareness Week, and Te Wiki o te Reo Maori (Maori Language Week).

Boosting business outcomes with workplace wellbeing

Employee wellbeing can lead to higher productivity, engagement, and better overall performance. When employees feel valued and supported, they are more likely to go above and beyond in their roles. It’s also a key element when it comes to attracting and retaining talent in today’s competitive labour market.

Another way you can show your employees that their health is a top priority is with nib Business Health Insurance. In addition to the themes and ideas you’ll find on the Wellbeing Calendar, take the extra step and show your employees they’rve valued.
