With a strong focus on its future success, the well known Florida SEO company, the HOTH is showing its out of the box, innovative side, by wisely investing in its employees’ health and well-being. Taking a stance way beyond standard workplace norms, the HOTH’s drive to create one of America’s top working environments, along with exciting healthy living initiatives, is truly admirable. And once the long-term success of this project is analyzed, then hopefully, other companies and organizations will follow suit.
Awards, Increased Productivity & Employee Retention
Now that some of HOTH’s cutting-edge changes have been implemented, both the employees and the local community are noticing positive changes. The Tampa Bay Business Journal has honored the company with two prestigious awards, and the company has enjoyed a rise in productivity levels, as well as employee retention.
So What Transformations Has it Made?
Firstly, it has got rid of the ever omnipresent open-plan office layout, and substituted it with a stunning unique office environment which is designed around everyone’s health and happiness. – Now, employees can enjoy their own a cool work space – a dimension in which they can be surrounded by uplifting artwork, fabulous plants, and other home comforts.
Further, the company has changed their standard desks which cause so much mental and physical stress and strain. – Every worker now has their own standing desk. This means that tight muscles around the shoulders, neck and back can become a thing of the past. By being able to stand, stretch their legs, pace about, and use much freer movements, they are not going to feel the depression and stress that comes with being confined to a chair.
In some cases, these unhealthy states experienced by office workers can be so bad, that some employees seek anti-depressant medication. And when the situation becomes chronic, then other negative mental health symptoms can appear. These include people hating their work, and generally losing their zest for life.Psychological distress
“A study of over 3,300 government workers in Australia found that those who spent more than six hours of a typical workday seated were more likely to score in the moderate to high range on a test of psychological distress than those who sat fewer than three hours. This held true, regardless of how much leisure time exercise they got”.
“Another study of nearly 9,000 women in their fifties found that those who sat for seven hours per day—and were physically inactive—were three times as likely to have symptoms of depression than individuals who sat for fewer than four hours and got the recommended amount of daily physical activity”.
A Message From the HOTH’s COO
The HOTH’s COO explains that: “Our team knows we have their best interests at heart, and we want them to enjoy working here, and in doing-so they put their heart and soul into what they do. We show our gratitude for the higher sales and stellar performance with more initiatives to help our team be the best people they can be. It’s essential that companies treat their employees like a family”.
