It’s been said that we live in times of exponential change; more so than any other time in history. Whilst some people thrive on change, for many it creates ongoing uncertainty and stress. Although there’s an assumption that stress and pressure push employees to perform more, better, and faster – and at times it does – what organisations often fail to recognise is the hidden costs incurred on long-term health and wellness and employee engagement levels. Studies clearly show that there are significant correlations between high employee wellness and high employee engagement and conversely, low employee wellness and low employee engagement. We know that low employee engagement is costly. In studies by the Queens School of Business and by the Gallup Organization, organisations with low employee engagement showed:
- 37% higher absenteeism
- 49% more accidents
- 60% more errors and defects.
- 18% lower productivity
- 16% lower profitability
- 37% lower job growth
So, building the wellbeing of your people isn’t just a nice to have, it’s an essential component to running a successful business.
We like to take an evidence driven, holistic approach to workplace wellness. We focus on equipping people with practical and proven tools and techniques they can use every day to build resiliency, increase wellbeing, make wiser decisions and feel more in control.
