As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to change every facet of today’s workforce, mobility, choice, and virtual collaboration have proved to be invaluable. Amidst the crisis, responsible companies are realising the criticality of employee wellbeing and are taking proactive steps to create a workplace culture and environment that allows everyone to put in their best efforts. Just as a company’s processes need to adapt to the new reality of the home office, so does its corporate wellbeing program. With an exclusive focus on the physical, emotional and mental and health of the employees, Joy Corporate, a trusted partner for occupational health management (OHM) in Switzerland, offers a modern and professional introduction to the topic of OHM in a fast, easy, and innovative way. Catering to multinationals as well as small and medium-sized companies, Joy Corporate delivers innovative workshops and seminars for organisations that care about employee health and prevention. Mara Schär, CEO of Joy Corporate, says, “Flexibility is key, especially in challenging times like these. As such, we constantly invent new ways of providing our services and support to our clients.”
Mara emphasises that the need to be able to access the wellbeing programs from any location is now more than ever. Employees must be involved in the activities, partake in different built-in challenges, and be able to compare themselves virtually with each other if necessary. To that end, Joy Corporate provides various webinars that employees can access at any time along with online team events, such as a cooking webinar, where team members from all over the world join online to create an excellent dish together. The company has successfully launched “Joy Corporate Online Academy” to contribute to the continuous improvement of its own competence with attractive, modern learning methods. “Our courses are proactive and help employees reach their full potential at all levels: physical, mental, social, intellectual and spiritual. They are cost-effective when compared to the increased economic value that companies can achieve with motivated and committed employees,” notes Mara. The courses offered by Joy Corporate come with an e-learning system that is available 24 hours a day, and users can access it anytime from anywhere, on any device.
We create vision, and put that vision into action. Our aim is to develop operating conditions, structures and processes that promote health of the employees
Joy Corporate is thus shifting the focus to e-learning that can be really beneficial for companies as digital courses are not only much more affordable but also offer a higher degree of flexibility. Moreover, training can be delivered from home or the office, without incurring travel and location costs.
Joy Corporate’s power workshops or seminars bring employees up to date on the latest developments and cover various areas of Stress Management, Emotional Intelligence, Healthy Sleep, Communication, Diversity, Productivity, Digital Detox, Addiction Management, and more. The company also offers onsite hobby workshops (Painting, Dancing, Art History, Ikebana, Zumba, Ceramic, Barista, and more) for a relaxing, meditative and concentration-promoting effect on employees. Creative activities, such as social communication, dynamism, spontaneity, and more, are also a part of the workshops, which help reduce stress, allow employees to relax and support the development of analytical skills. They also help employees learn a new skill or develop an already acquired skill while boosting their self-confidence and self-esteem. At the same time, these activities broaden the social circle and strengthen the team spirit. Joy Corporate has also launched a new health-check service, an onsite screening of the employees for COVID-19 before they come to work. Regular checks for workers could keep exposure to sick employees to a minimum and boost employees’ confidence about coming back to work.
Mara credits the success and commitment of Joy Corporate to the core values that the company instils in whatever it does. “Innovative thinking, trust, learning and growth—our core values take on a more personal meaning for each team member. And when they come together as a team, bringing these values to the table becomes effortless,” Mara remarks. “We create vision, and put that vision into action. Our aim is to develop operating conditions, structures and processes that promote health of the employees.” With a firm belief in hard work and high standards, Joy Corporate works with a highly qualified team of experts, partners and health professionals to help employees achieve more growth. John C. Maxwell once wrote, “Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who do not.” Along the lines, the company aims to instil in each employee and team member a personal emphasis on a growth mindset.
In the near future, Joy Corporate plans on expanding its online Academy, hiring more proven experts and offering more themes. The company is also looking at steadily offering more webinars to guarantee flexibility and growth for international as well.
