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.

Would wonder what your HR managers and CEOs say?

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
