slide20-benefits-of-puzzles-for-adults

Modern day employers need to be constantly aware of their responsibilities when it comes to workplace health and safety.  Safety checks, ergonomic equipment and safety training have all helped to reduce any health risks in the workplace.  Some employers have set up special facilities such as dedicated lunch rooms/time out spaces and even gyms so that their staff can maintain their physical and mental health.  A healthy employee is far more likely to be productive so there is a good return on the employers investment.

  • Brain Health Equally Important as Physical Health

We are all being asked to work for longer, which means that managing our body is even more paramount.  It is about managing physical and mental health and keeping stress under control  Gyms and swimming pools are great for managing the physical side, however if we are wanting to maintain good brain health, and ward off dementia in later life, we need to involve ourselves in activities that promote learning and thinking  that will keep the brain sharp and active.  This is where the ‘time-out’ space will come in very useful.

  • Encourage Your Employees to Play Puzzles When They Take A Break

Solving puzzles is perfect.   Employees can choose to play puzzles individually, or in a group.  This encourages social interaction, allowing workers to get to know each other, and form friendships.  All great benefits in the workplace.

A puzzle subscription from the Clue Detective Puzzle Agency is great value. The site is regularly updated with new puzzle material which can be used by employees.
