Wellness Corner: Blood Pressure Screenings
Updated: Feb 16
The success of a business can often come down to its employees, which means that taking care of them should be a top priority for employers. Offering wellness initiatives throughout your organization can be a great way to support the well-being of your employees.
One common condition that can be addressed in the workplace is high blood pressure, or hypertension. Nearly one out of two Americans have hypertension, which can lead to larger health issues, such as heart attacks and strokes, if not treated.
So what can employers do to help? Here are a few tips:
- Create and support hypertension awareness initiatives
- Provide access to and/or encourage regular blood pressure checks
- Offer low-sodium foods in the workplace
- Introduce onsite exercise options, such as stationary bikes and walking groups
