A Healthy Workforce Brings Rewards
If you want a healthy business (and bottom line), keep your staff healthy.
According to new research commissioned by government initiative Get Healthy at Work, small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) with a healthy workforce are $100,000 better off over a five year period than businesses with unhealthy staff.
Encouraging staff to have a healthy lunch, get up from their desk or ride a bike to work, and offering workplace health checks could result in a very healthy business saving. It is estimated that a successful workplace program can decrease staff turnover by an average pf 10-25%, and decrease staff absenteeism by an average of 30-40%.
Effective workplace health programs have also been shown to deliver a broader range of business benefits including improved morale and greater employee engagement.
The positive effects of a healthy workplace both on employee sentiment and business costs far outweigh the investment a business might make to create a healthy workplace.
