Benefits of Workplace Wellbeing
Health is becoming an increasingly important factor for employee benefits at work. A healthy, happy workforce leads to an increase in productivity and job satisfaction so a strategic plan to develop this should be imperative for any business – especially since recent UK Government figures indicate that every year, sickness from work costs UK employers approximately £29 billion.
Wellbeing aids good communication
Good communication encourages a positive work culture.
Staff wellbeing leads to better interactions and helps to promote understanding.
Wellbeing can reduce stress indicators
- poor performance;
- tiredness or irritability;
- an increase in sickness absence;
- poor time-keeping;
- difficulty with work relationships;
- mood swings.
For a business, it’s always important to have those who work there to be fit, healthy and happy. This is achieved via a work culture that promotes health and wellbeing through all aspects of their lives. Since most people spend most of their adult life at work, it’s no surprise that they want to be happy.
