Why should businesses support their staff regarding health and wellbeing.
Posted on 1st August 2019 at 14:15
The most important asset of any company is its’ people.
Companies who recognise and acknowledge this give themselves the best chance to build happier and healthier teams.
The wellbeing of employees is vital where emotional resilience, mental and physical health, energy, stamina, stress all provide challenges in ones working life.
A company who shows its' staff that it understands the issues that they may face, as groups or individuals, have an opportunity to do more for their teams.
Keeping employees healthy and productive arguably makes sound financial sense. According to the Office for National Statistics, an estimated 137.3 million working days were lost to sickness or injury in the UK in 2016 (an average of 4.3 days per worker per year). Furthermore, NICE(National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) reported that staff sickness cost the British economy an estimated £15 billion in 2011.
