Corporate Wellness: The Key to Increased Engagement, Productivity, and Profits
Updated: Nov 2, 2021
Well-being and effective leadership have never been more important than now, in this ever-changing Covid world. The need to look after ourselves and others, while also ensuring we're delivering for those we serve, can feel like a daunting task. The key to successfully navigating these challenges is to have optimal health-physical, emotional, and mental health.
Most people know what the benefits of being healthy are, but what is the benefit to a company? A study by Harvard Business Review found that for every dollar invested in wellness, companies average a return of $2.71 by way of increased productivity, decreased absenteeism, and reduced healthcare cost. Research also indicates that employees tend to be more loyal and stay longer with a company that is concerned about their health. So how can companies encourage employees to be healthier?
Let’s look at some of the top companies that are leading the way in employee wellness.
