Why Promote Wellness in the Workplace?
Worksite health promotion is an investment in your most important asset, your employees. Studies have shown that employees are more likely to be on the job and performing well when they are in optimal physical and psychological health. Employees are also more likely to be attracted to, remain with, and value a company that values them. Worksite health promotion improves company productivity by:
- Attracting the most talented workers;
- Reducing absenteeism and lost time;
- Improving on-the-job time utilization and decision making; and
- Improving employee morale, which leads to a reduction in turnover.
In addition to improved productivity, wellness programs have proved to be an effective tool in slowing the growth of health care costs.
