Strategies for Engaged Employees and Corporate Growth
What is Workplace Well-being?
Workplace well-being is the thoughtful establishment of a culture of care for the individual as a whole person.
Great companies invest in the well-being of their people — and in return, employees invest in the well-being of the company*. The current workforce places value on experience and engagement at work. They strive to make meaningful contributions to their team and the world, and they want to work for companies that appreciate and care for them in return. Creating an environment that promotes wellbeing retains talented employees and improves the company’s bottom line by reducing absenteeism, low energy and low productivity. A healthy workforce saves the company on insurance costs. A happy workforce experiences less turnover, which saves the company money on replacing lost employees.
When employees feel that their company cares about them, they are*:
to recommend their company as a great place to work
to stay at their company for three or more years
to feel included at work
to suffer from stress and burnout
to be engaged at work
Conversely, unhealthy, unengaged employees result in increasing costs for the company.
Chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease) have increased and account for 85% of healthcare costs. Almost half of Americans have at least one chronic illness.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death and affects 1 in 3 adults. Most forms of heart disease are preventable through a healthy lifestyle. Reducing the amount of stress, being active and eating a heart healthy diet can reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 50%.
Tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of disease, disability and death in the U.S. 480,000 people die each year from smoking related illnesses. Each smoker generates $2,000 more per year on healthcare costs on average and loses over 6 hours per week of productivity due to smoke breaks. In addition, smokers pay higher insurance premiums, averaging 15-20% more per year.
