Workplace Wellness

Whether your team has thought a lot or a little about what a workplace wellness program could look like, the important part is you’ve started the conversation. Let’s take a deeper dive into what exactly workplace wellness is and what kinds of benefits the programming can provide. 

What is Workplace Wellness?

Mental. Emotional. Physical. Financial. Social. Wellness means different things to different people. It’s also going to look different for each organization. 

In general, workplace wellness is about providing educational and engaging activities for employees to improve their health and for businesses to improve their bottom line. Wellness programs also: 

  • Align with company culture
  • Support individuals through personalized initiatives
  • Drive results for both employees and the business
  • Capture measurable data
  • Deliver a return on investment through productivity and general well-being

Benefits of Wellness Programs

At first glance, some may think wellness programs only benefit those who take the time to participate. Actually, wellness programs produce a plethora of benefits for the organization, too.  

Health Benefits

Educational sessions, resources, group challenges and other initiatives that take place in the office can address several aspects of well-being from vaccinations to heart health, diet and more, all the while saving employees time away from their family. The benefits of wellness programs add up to healthier, better rested employees by: 

  • Increasing energy and focus
  • Screening for and/or preventing chronic disease
  • Reducing stress
  • Building confidence and community

Employee ROI

Healthy habits lead to fewer sick days. In fact, our clients reported a 37% decrease in absenteeism after they began programming. They also saw productivity rise an average of 21% because their employees are happier and healthier. These results naturally lead to a decrease in healthcare expenses. For every dollar invested in wellness programs, organizations save an average of $3.27 in health costs. But that’s not all. Your healthier workforce that now saves time and money will also feel more valued and appreciated when it sees the organization investing in its personal health. It means 65% lower employee turnover compared to businesses that ignore wellness.
