We know that personal health and wellness problems can impact workplace performance, and a study from Ernst & Young states that over a third of employees in Australian workplaces are in the category of losing 12 to 27% of their potential productivity. Together, it costs Australian businesses billions of dollars.
“People are living longer and need to be able to support themselves through their old age. In order to improve employee well-being, we need more than the traditional approach of gym memberships and flu jabs.”
According to research by the Federal Government through Comcare, a successful workplace health and wellness program will save an average of $5.81 for every $1 invested. This is due to:
- Decreased healthcare costs
- Decreased workers compensation costs
- Increased productivity
The report also aims to measure the positive impact on the company’s image, both to the public and to its own employees.
