We believe healthy employees make healthy companies.
… And more and more companies are starting to agree with us! Corporate wellness programmes are a great way to improve the health and wellbeing of your whole workforce, boosting both individual and team morale and reducing staff turnover, sick days and healthcare costs in the long run. A happy, healthy team makes for a more energetic, positive and productive workplace – and what business doesn’t want that?
Benefits of a Corporate Wellness Programme
A healthy lifestyle can be easily incorporated into a work environment – and has a vast range of benefits to both employers and employees.
A quick look at the stats from a 2004 Ipsos-Reid study shows that the main preventable factors behind employee absenteeism are:
- Depression, anxiety or other mental health disorders – 66%
- Stress – 60%
- Negative relationships with their supervisor or manager – 44%
- Co-worker conflict in the workplace – 28%
Investing in an effective corporate wellness programme can help address all of these factors. Improved health has been shown to alleviate stress and tension (which is often cited as a major problem in Hong Kong, and can affect all levels of an organisation), plus enhance people’s overall mood and wellbeing.
This results in real-world savings for employers – fewer sick days and workplace injuries, lower employee health and insurance costs, higher staff retention, and a happier, more productive and harmonious workforce.
A strong corporate wellness programme and caring attitude towards staff’s general health and wellbeing is also beneficial in attracting even more great employees in the future, and speaks volumes about your company ethos and values.
