Corporate wellness has been an extremely popular buzzword and philosophy for a few years, as companies realize the value in creating a healthy workforce. The bottom line is simple; employees that are healthy are more productive. An employee that feels better and isn’t as stressed, is typically more engaged while on the clock. They also typically experience less health-related absenteeism. When individuals are able to be more productive while at work, in the end, that means dollar signs for corporations.
Studies dating back to 2013 have shown the actual dollar for dollar benefit of investing in employee wellness. A report from Harvard Business School showed that “for every dollar large employers spent on wellness programs, they saw company medical costs fall by $3.27. But even beyond that payoff in health, the study found a comparable payoff in productivity: For every dollar spent on wellness programs, the companies’ absenteeism-related costs fell about $2.73.”
This is even more important as we’re almost 10 months into a global pandemic. Keeping your employees healthy and well doesn’t have to take a back seat when they are working remotely. Great companies should make it a priority to offer resources and inspiration to help employees stay engaged and improve their overall wellbeing.
