Looking to create a happier, healthier, and more productive workforce?
The benefits of a workplace wellness program are two-fold:
Improved Employee Health: Corporate health programs promote healthy lifestyles and provide resources for employees to manage their physical and mental health. This leads to fewer sick days, reduced stress levels, and increased productivity.
Long-term Cost savings: Corporate health programs can result in reduced healthcare costs, lower absenteeism, and improve employee retention.
Increased Employee Engagement: Boost employee morale and engagement, which can lead to increased job satisfaction and loyalty. This, in turn, can lead to improved performance and productivity.
Enhanced Company Culture: A corporate health program demonstrates that the company values its employees and cares about their well-being.
Improved Reputation: Companies with a strong focus on employee health and well-being can attract and retain top talent, and may be viewed more favorably by customers and stakeholders.
And here's what the science says:
Improved Employee Health: According to a study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers (2010), Australian companies that invest in health and wellness programs can see a return on investment of up to $6 for every $1 spent.
Reduced Healthcare Costs: According to research by the Australian Human Resources Institute, companies that implement wellness programs can see a 25-50% reduction in workers' compensation costs and a 25-40% reduction in health-related absenteeism.
Improved Employee Engagement: A survey conducted by Aon Hewitt (2015) found that Australian companies with high levels of employee engagement had 25% higher profitability and 65% higher share price over time. Health and wellness programs were identified as key drivers of employee engagement.
Decreased Absenteeism: The Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that in 2019, the average number of sick days taken by Australian workers was 9.3 days per year. A study by the Australian National University found that workplace wellness programs can reduce absenteeism by up to 25%.
Corporate health is not just about profits and productivity, it's about creating a workplace where employees feel valued, respected, and supported in achieving their personal and professional goals.
What a program entails:
Each corporate health program is tailored based on your organisation's goals, timelines, and resources, but here are some things you might expect:
One-on-one coaching sessions with employees to set goals
Half/Full-day wellness seminars
Keynotes/presentations to inspire and educate
