BENEFITS FOR EMPLOYERS
Healthy workers can be almost three times more productive than their unhealthy colleagues.* People who are unwell either don’t perform at their best, or they do not turn up for work at all.
A well implemented health and well-being programme will help reduce absenteeism and staff turnover, leading to increased skill retention, and a reduction in training and recruitment costs. Employee physical and mental well-being is protected and improved, increasing staff morale and leading to increased productivity. The cost savings for the organisation can be significant.
