What Are Corporate Wellness Programmes?
Corporate wellness programmes are any employer-sponsored programmes designed to support employees as they adopt and sustain behaviours that improve their quality of life and enhance personal effectiveness.
These programmes can take on a wide range of activities involving physical & mental health and overall well-being of working individuals at the workplace, such as health screenings, sports challenges / activities, gym memberships, wellness talks, interest clubs and group activities.
Benefits of Corporate Wellness Programmes
While it may be common to think that corporate wellness programmes are more of a “good to have”, research have shown that it is not only a strategic imperative, but a meld of both corporate responsibility and business necessity for a company to sustain a healthy and satisfied labor force.
In fact, the ROI of corporate wellness programmes points to a brilliant investment ; It is estimated that for every $1 spent, a well executed wellness programme can yield close to $3 in returns.
After all, employees are the most valuable assets to any company, and a healthier, more motivated workforce is a happier, more productive workforce.
At its core, a corporate wellness programme is a strategic investment that yields companies lowered expenses often in the form of better performing workers, lower absenteeism and health care costs and better staff retention rates.
Studies have pointed to how organizations with highly effective wellness programs report significantly lower voluntary attrition than do those whose programs have low effectiveness (9% vs. 15%).
The bottom line (pun intended) message is clear: Invest in the health of your employees and the return is exponential.
