Every company makes conscious investments that will benefit them financially and fundamentally. Employee benefits, work environment, and workplace health promotion impact their bottom line. These components ensure companies receive a profitable ROI (Return On Investment) in order to grow, stay in business, and be a direct competitor.
Workplace health promotion, in particular, can positively shape employees’ experiences and help businesses make a profit in various ways. Want to know more about how it can positively impact a business’ bottom line? Check out three ways below:
A Hub International study revealed that 66% of employers are receiving an ROI since they've put effective health initiatives in place. Programs that tend to workers’ mental and physical health reap major benefits. Gym memberships, support services and workplace health initiatives can improve employees’ and wellbeing. Less fatigue makes employees happier, engaged and more likely to miss fewer days at work.
Workplace stress places a negative toll on employees. Long hours and a heavy workload can lead to depression and sleeping difficulties. Employers should be cognizant about how many responsibilities they place on employees. If not, they are more likely to end their employment or call out of work more often. Employers should enforce work hours and set attainable deadlines to avoid burnout.
Better retention and recruiting
Employees value a workplace where they feel taken care of and respected. Health and wellness services are not considered too often to help businesses reduce turnover rates. If employees' needs and concerns are met, they are less likely to leave their place of employment, which benefits the company in the long-run. A healthy workplace attracts quality candidates and helps them enjoy their time at work.
A healthier workforce impacts a company’s bottom line by saving money and improving their reputation. Health is wealth, and companies should take the necessary steps to not only make sure their employees are healthy, but their business landscape is as well.
