Where does your organization stand on this subject?
The trend is that employee well-being programs are becoming more and more popular. Why?
Here’s one reason – it saves you and your company money and more.
By Investing in stress-management resources and wellness programs (like meditation and mindfulness sessions), you and your team can:
+ Increase Productivity At Work as people feel better, have clearer minds, and more energy.
+ Decrease Absent Days taken by employees as they feel less stressed and more healthy.
+ Reduce healthcare costs (personal deductibles and insurance costs)
One study stated that the average financial benefits of employee wellness programs are 6:1.
This means for every $1 invested in an effective employee wellness program, $6 was saved!
It also reported that direct medical costs were reduced by $3.27 and absenteeism costs fell by $2.73 per dollar!
The question now changes from “can we afford this for my organization” to “can we afford NOT to have a program like this for our organization?”
Food for thought.

A quote to reflect on:
“Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person – not just an employee – are more productive, more satisfied, and more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability.” – Anne Mulcahy, former Chairman & CEO, XEROX Corporation
