Why Is Employee Wellness Such A High Priority?

June 29, 2018

Employee wellness has become a key term in the world of human resources given that prioritising the health and well-being of employees has been proven to be a mutually beneficial strategy for businesses and employees alike. There have been over 50 academic pages published on the subject that correlate in conjunction with government research suggesting comprehensive wellness programmes lead to; a reduction in absenteeism, increased profits – due to a return on investment in wellness, and a happier working environment.

 

Financially the benefits of employee wellness programmes are easy to break down. In terms of physical health, employees with health-related illnesses such as diabetes and obesity are more likely to be absent from work. Furthermore, stress-related illnesses such as anxiety and depression also cause absenteeism and contribute to 300,000 people losing their jobs per year. Before even considering lost productivity and efficiency through absenteeism, it costs businesses over £30,000 to turnover members of staff.

 

When structured wellness programmes are in place for employees they themselves tend to suffer less from health issues such as high blood pressure and cholesterol and are therefore able to lead healthier and happier lives. At Healthy Nibbles, we believe that the welfare of employees should be a paramount concern for businesses. Employees are the most important assets to a business, and therefore looking after them is crucial to any businesses success.

 

Top brands such as; Three Mobile, BBC, Allianz and Aon agree with us and have already employed our vending solutions and office snack solutions to help their employees stay in control of their health. In years to come having a wellness strategy will be critical to any successful business, and we feel getting ahead of the curve will only be beneficial to companies in the long run.
