Creating a Culture of Wellness

ORGANIZATIONAL AND BUSINESS

Creating a Culture of Wellness

Employee Assistance Programs on their own do not solve productivity, performance, or behavioural issues. A cultural approach to changing behaviors to support wellness is required.

Would you like to improve Employee Morale? Prevent Absenteeism? Increase Productivity? Maximize your Benefit Dollars?

While companies are talking about wellness, most are doing only that – talking.

If you asked your staff if they want their employer to do more to promote health and wellness, you’d get a resounding “yes”. Of course you’ll be protecting the bottom line with returns in increased productivity, job satisfaction, and decreased stress and health care bills. So, if your business is suffering from employee burnout, poor morale, lost time from absenteeism maybe you should find out what you can do to create a wellness culture!

Employee Assistance Programs on their own do not solve productivity, performance, or behavioural issues. A cultural approach to changing behaviors to support wellness is required.

Statistics taken over the last decade show that for every dollar spent on Workplace Wellness Programs, the returns have been cost savings of between $2.30 and $10.10 in the areas of decreased absenteeism, fewer sick days, reduced WSIB/WCB claims, lowered health and insurance costs, and improvements to employee performance and productivity.

If you think your organization is too small for a workplace wellness or employee benefits program, think again! If you are a benefits decision-maker for a company and you don’t have a wellness program, you should get one. If your employees aren’t using their benefits program to support their health and wellness, you can do something about that as well.
