Why creating a healthy workplace is good for business

We all know that regular exercise and good nutrition is an essential part of keeping healthy.  But did you know that implementing a healthy workplace programme can also increase your staff’s productivity – and the turnover of your business – by up to 20 per cent?

Staff wellbeing is key to performance, morale and productivity which means that taking care of your staff is a wise investment. Absence through illness, stress or physical ailments such as a bad back costs the UK economy £29 bn every year. So, how many working days do you lose unnecessarily every year through staff illness? 10, 20, 30? How much is that costing your organisation?

The good news is that we can help. From chiropractic services for bad backs (the largest single cause of employee absence) and poor posture caused by sitting for hours at a desk, through to mindfulness programmes which can help manage stress, we have a range of services to help you create a happier, healthier, more productive workplace.

The benefits of implementing a workplace wellness programme include:

  1. A reduction in sickness absence – delivering a fully funded Healthy Workplace Programme has reduced sickness absence in organisations by up to 23%.
  2. A reduction in staff turnover – wellness programmes have been shown to reduce staff churn by an average of 20-25%.
  3. A reduction in accidents and injuries in the workplace.
  4. The ability to attract (and retain) high calibre employees.
  5. Improved productivity – and income for your business.
  6. A happier, healthier staff, making your business a great place to work.
