Well-being at Work


 

Your employees are your most valuable asset; their health and well-being is central to your organisation's success.

Without healthy and happy employees, your business will not achieve it's true potential, at worst it will fail.

 

Do any of your employees struggle with any of the following:

Overweight and obesity?
Recurrent colds and other minor illness?
Neck, low back pain or other musculo-skeletal complaints?
Fatigue and loss of concentration?
Stress, depression or anxiety?
Long term conditions?

    Any of these issues can lead to a loss of staff engagement, morale, motivation and productivity. This in turn costs your organisation through the increased associated costs of absenteeism, presenteesim and staff turnover.  Sickness absence can make up ~9% of an organisation's annual costs. With more workers managing chronic conditions this group contributes the highest sickness absence rate across all groups. 

    Are you confident you are supporting your staff health and well-being as much as you can?

    It's wishful thinking to assume that good employees can be replaced. That employee carries an added value that is often overlooked: not only the extensive experience and deep institutional knowledge, product, systems, and process knowledge. The client relationships they have built over many years, the camaraderie and influence with their coworkers. Lose that employee and your corporate culture and identity is affected.

    A workplace health and well being initiative will help you optimise the work environment and develop a culture that allows you to attract and keep the best talent.
