Why invest in employee wellbeing?
We spend around a third of our adult lives at work, the evidence is fairly conclusive almost nothing has a greater impact on our mental wellbeing as employment.
Employees wellbeing is a key issue that companies need to address to ensure that their employees remain happy and motivated at work. Job related stress can drastically affect the workplace, making it difficult for everyone. Healthy and motivated employees can have an equally positive impact on productivity and effectiveness of a business.
Ineffective health and wellbeing issues can have serious cost implications to the company. Implementing a Workplace Wellbeing Program - Focusing on employees wellbeing involves initiatives to improve their mental health which benefits employers, as follows:
Reducing absenteeism and long-term sickness
Reducing costs for cover/temporary staff
Dramatically reducing resignations
A healthy workplace supports and encourages healthy behaviours
Helps reduce staff conflict
Cultivate positive connections between staff members
Increase work performance
Prevent “burn out”
The potential consequences of not supporting a workforce wellbeing – the cost of not having a workplace wellness program is higher than the cost of implementing one.
