Workplace wellness programmes benefit your organisation — and its finances — in many ways. They have the potential to boost productivity, decrease absenteeism and raise employee morale.
Because employees spend a large portion of their waking hours at work, the workplace is the perfect setting to address health and wellness issues, enhancing your employees’ personal and professional lives.
‘Workplace wellness’ refers to the educational resources and health programmes — such as health education classes, subsidised use of fitness facilities and internal policies that promote healthy behaviour — that a worksite may offer to promote healthy lifestyles.
Wellness programmes boost productivity because healthier employees are more productive. Even when sick or unhealthy employees show up to work, they are likely not operating at their best. Similarly, wellness programmes decrease absenteeism — healthier employees have fewer sick days and less time away from work. Wellness programmes also express a commitment to your employees’ health, which improves morale and strengthens retention.
