There has been an influx in health and wellness awareness over the past year – both physical and mental – which is a really good thing. While it’s definitely critical during a global pandemic, it should actually be a primary focus for every HR team.

Below are some self care tips as a beginning guide to help determine the contents of your kit based on your desired wellness goal – physical, financial, personal, work, etc. These kits can be custom curated by you (don’t worry, we can help – it’s what we do) and are composed of a few products and educational tools that can help your employees take time to care for themselves every day.
