Recent events have changed the world of work forever. People are demanding more from their employers than ever before. Across the world, workers are leaving their jobs in droves seeking roles that give them a better work-life balance and put their wellness first.
No matter how big or small your organisation, you need to address workplace wellness. If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to invest in corporate wellness and the holistic health of your team.
What are the benefits of corporate wellness?
Corporate wellness comes in many forms, but essentially it’s about supporting the physical, mental and emotional wellness of your employees to create an environment where they can thrive. Support can range from flexible working schemes to health and exercise programmes.
What is corporate wellness?
Growing evidence shows a robust positive link between corporate wellness programmes and improved engagement and performance levels. According to the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), which has been championing better work and working lives for more than 100 years, investing in employee wellbeing will lead to:
- Increased resilience
- Increased employee engagement
- Reduced sickness absence
- Increased performance and productivity
The CIPD’s 2022 Health and Wellbeing at Work Survey identified the top three benefits for employers’ increasing their focus on employee wellbeing:
- A healthier and more inclusive culture
- Improved work-life balance
- Improved employee morale and engagement
And, overall, a happier and healthier workforce means a more engaged and productive workforce, which stays with you for longer.
