Employee Wellness

For many employees, the workplace is the primary community. Providing music therapy in the workplace can strengthen the commitment of your team, improve engagement and increase productivity.

Driving positive, dynamic work cultures

Employee Wellness

Today’s employees want to work for organizations that not only provide professional and personal development, but also foster a positive climate and a sense of community. Investing in employee health and wellness supports employees, improves company culture and distinguishes companies for their commitment to the health and well-being of their employees.

Wellness programs can include aspects relating to mental health and well-being as well as physical health. Not surprisingly, happy employees are more collaborative, motivated and productive. Lower rates of absenteeism and longer company tenure are additional benefits of healthier, happier employees.

In recent years, wellness programming has grown dramatically, encompassing areas such as personal development, team building and communication skills, that were once the domain of Human Resources. Stress reduction, burnout prevention and self-care to promote healthier habits are also key elements of today’s innovative wellness programs.

“To music is to take part, in any capacity, in a musical performance. That means not only to perform, but also to listen, to provide material for a performance — what we call composing — to prepare for a performance — what we call practicing or rehearsing — or any other activity which can affect the nature of the human encounter.”   – Christopher Small, Ethnomusicologist (1995)
