Because of the connection between wellness and productivity, companies have taken a strong interest in promoting wellness in the workplace. Not only does the provision of information and support resources to your staff satisfy duty of care requirements, but your staff will be healthier, more knowledgeable, and more engaged.
According to Corporate Wellness Magazine, every $1 invested in employee wellness programs yields roughly $4 in savings through reduced sick days, higher productivity and decreased overall health costs. Healthier people work harder, are happier, help others and are more efficient. Unhealthy workers are generally sluggish, overtired and unhappy, as the work is a symptom of their way of life.
Employees often see a comprehensive workplace health program as an investment made by their company for their well-being and a reflection of how much the company cares about its employees which may impact job satisfaction and morale.
