TVH is a 50-year-old, Belgian-based, global one-stop shop for parts and accessories for material handling, industrial, and agricultural equipment. And it has a kick-ass wellness program, aka the "Nudge Program”. The Nudge Program incorporates a 10,000 sq. ft. Nudge Center for employees to workout, play and relax; an in-house chef; a meditation space; chiropractor; massage therapy; Reiki; an incentive program; and meditation and wellness classes thanks to its visionary CEO of the Americas Els Thermote and Coach Lucy. Having coached racquetball since 1981, stepping into wellness coaching was a natural next step. In addition to corporate wellness, she owns TCOY Wellness, established in 1999. As a wellness coach, Coach Lucy inspires, guides, and leads by example toward whole-person wellness.
So what is corporate wellness, even? We talk about what goes into a wellness program, how to encourage EVERYONE toward better health and wellness, and the importance of gratitude (as well as socks!). Companies don’t have to do as much as TVH, though, to stress the importance of wellness to employees. Listen for ideas on how to start small on the road to institutional well-being.
