Promoting a Healthy Workplace
Helping your employees to improve their health can pay significant dividends.
The PriceWaterhouseCoopers report, ‘Building the case for wellness’*, analysed the results of UK workplace initiatives aimed at improving the wellbeing of staff and identified substantial benefits. It also found that the cost of running wellbeing programmes was quickly translated into financial benefits for the organisations involved.
What’s more, the health of the UK workforce is vital to the economy. The Confederation of British Industry estimates that 175 million working days are lost to sickness absence at a cost of almost £13.4billion a year.
