Keeping workers happy has always been a part of business, but it has evolved dramatically in recent years. What started as simple incentives grew to include gym memberships with pay packets and have now evolved into full health and wellbeing programs for workers.
It is about investing in staff and preventing them from becoming mentally and/or physically unwell and unable to work, potentially hospitalised and possible on workers compensation while they recover.
The most successful corporations, right down to the most exciting and dynamic SMEs and startups, are rolling out employee wellbeing and performance measures for their staff, resulting in unparalleled success and support for their businesses.
Discover wellbeing programs for employees
One of the most important parts of our solutions is that they establish positive patterns of behaviour that become good habits for your workers. Day by day they are exercising more, developing better eating habits, sleeping habits, taking up activities to improve their mental and physical wellbeing. This leads to a range of benefits for your business, including:
- A reduction in elevated health risks: Did you know that basic changes to your exercise and eating habits can reduce your chances of elevated health risks in as little as six weeks? Improvement will come rapidly and the more these become ingrained as habits, the healthier your staff will be.
- Improved productivity: When employees are attending work, but not carrying out their duties satisfactorily, this is called presenteeism. They are there in body, but not in mind or spirit. Improved wellbeing is going to make them happier, more motivated, more alert and more aware so they will become much more functional and productive members of your team.
- Decreased absenteeism: The simple fact is that healthier staff take less sick days.
