If you’re still on the fence about whether to introduce a corporate wellness program for your organisation, then the information in this blog will make for some interesting reading. Spoiler alert – according to the 2017 Deloitte report Mental Health & Employers : Refreshing the Case For Investment, every £1 spent will return £5 – and that’s before we start talking about the physical benefits of corporate wellness!
The benefits of implementing fitness and wellness programs for your workforce are numerous, from increased performance, employee retention to job satisfaction. Perhaps it stands to reason that the uplift is so significant, particularly as your employees represent your most valuable resource. Supporting them properly in this way can pay huge dividends.
Lost days & lost productivity
When you provide a range of fitness and wellness activities for your team, you empower them to be better versions of themselves. There’s no doubting the fact that healthier people tend to be happier in themselves and that’s without covering the improvements that can be enjoyed in terms of focus, concentration and absenteeism.
Corporate wellness programs that help combat stress and sedentary habits work to reduce lost days due to sickness and their associated costs. When combined with the enhanced productivity that happier, healthier employees offer, you soon start to see exactly how a return in excess of 400% is possible.
70% of employees want to engage in corporate wellness
Other advantages to introducing corporate wellness programs include an enhanced reputation as an employer that cares about its employees. Programs like these are very much seen as a perk and knowing that you cater for this need makes it easier to attract the top talent in your industry. The fact is that as much as 70% of employees would take part if asked to do so.
With what’s on offer, you can’t blame them either, as the options are varied, including:
- Strenuous physical fitness options like kickboxing, trampolining & HIIT training
- Bodyweight boot camps to assist in burning those calories
- Classes for flexibility & longevity like Zumba, Yoga, Barre & Pilates and Yogalates
- Pre & post natal classes for those new and expectant Mums on your payroll
- Meditation and sound bath classes that soothe the mind and body
- Nutritional seminars to fuel brain, gut and organ health
As you can see, we’re not just talking about lunchtime jogging in the park (although that’s an option too!), rather a complete set of choices that meet all the physical and mental wellness needs of your staff. Able to be enjoyed in-person or remotely, you get the classes you need and the benefits they offer on your terms.
