Every CFO wants to know, "What is the ROI?" and that depends on too many things to give a definitive answer to that question. Many of the benefits are social and intangible. It's part of doing the right thing and treating your employees as not only one of your most important assets, but as human beings who spend a lot of time working for your company and contributing to your bottom line. Without them operating at optimal health they're not going to be as valuable to you, and if fact, may end up being a drain on your resources instead.

Watch for a report coming soon here that aggregates several large, international research studies that demonstrate what's possible when companies fully embrace prioritizing human health potential and well-being.

Explore how the most successful companies use workplace wellness as a strategic initiative for healthy rewards, both for their employees' well-being and for the company's bottom line.

Creating a healthy workplace culture takes time and expertise that you may not want to hire a full time employee to be responsible for. The truth is, it starts with your own leadership team being open to the idea that a healthier, happier and more productive employee is worth the effort of implementing a healthy workplace culture strategy. 

Companies and employees benefit mutually from initiatives that demonstrate the leadership actually cares about their well-being.

Some of the company's benefits:

  • Reduced employee absenteeism and presenteeism
  • More engaged and productive employees
  • Positioned as "Employer of Choice" and attracts top talent
  • Health oriented work culture promotes safe work practices and reduces injuries
  • Potential for reduced healthcare and insurance costs
  • Improved employee retention
  • Enhanced employee morale, job satisfaction and teamwork

It doesn't happen overnight, and it won't happen by offering a token lunch n' learn once a year. A more comprehensive strategy involves multi-dimensional offerings that allow employees to engage their way, in their own time. For example, monthly newsletters, lunch n' learns, on-site health coaching, stress management workshops, holistic heath resources intranet portals, group and team challenges and fun events, and leadership training are just a few of the possible initiatives that could elevate the healthy workplace culture you want.
