A 2020 study found that 83% of construction industry workers have experienced moderate to severe mental health concerns.
Wellness Workdays, a leading provider of behavioral health and wellness coaching for the construction industry, for more than 20 years, announces its partnership with Janey Construction. With this partnership, Janey further demonstrates their commitment to fostering a safe, productive, and resilient workforce.
Mental health and overall well-being in the construction industry have been emerging concerns across the nation, and efforts to raise awareness and address these issues have been met with openness from employees. This partnership will deliver a customized and flexible approach to well-being by providing employees the opportunity to meet with a dedicated Wellness Workdays Behavioral Health and Wellness Coach, as well as participate in biometric screenings and relevant health education activities.
“We understand the demanding nature of the construction industry and the toll it can take on a worker’s well-being”, says Debra Wein, CEO & Founder of Wellness Workdays. “By providing employees with a dedicated Behavioral Health and Wellness Coach, we are able to provide the necessary tools, support, resources, and accountability to prioritize employee well-being while contributing to the productivity of the workforce. We are committed to creating a workplace that not only prioritizes safety on the job, but also supports total worker health.”
One-on-one health coaching will be available both on-site and virtually to provide personalized support, tailored guidance, and resources to enhance employee well-being. Onsite biometric screenings and individualized health assessments will be offered to empower individuals to make informed decisions about their lifestyle and overall health.
Employees will also have the opportunity to come together to participate in group health coaching sessions that will touch on current wellness topics. These group sessions, led by an experienced professional, will provide a supportive environment where individuals can share their experiences, provide mutual support for behavior change, and create a collaborative learning environment.
“Having a wellness program is extremely important and beneficial to employees,” says Janey’s Safety Manager, Geoffrey Woodberry. “Our commitment to wellness is crucial because, at the core, our people are our greatest asset. Safety isn't confined to hard hats and caution signs. It extends to the overall well-being of our team, mentally and physically. This program, with Wellness Workdays, allows us to connect with our employees in ways that we didn’t think were possible in construction. Growing up, we are taught that we should leave our personal life at home, but sometimes that’s not an easy thing to do. We are so incredibly thankful to be partnered with Wellness Workdays because they help individuals find that healthy balance between their work and personal lives.”
