Promoting Team Building and Productivity in Your Workplace!
Toronto Chair Massage In the Know
Savvy corporations know that employee wellness impacts the bottom line. We all know intuitively that healthy employees are more productive and take less time off. We also know that stress, anxiety, and constant pressure reduce the ability to perform well. Does research really back this up?
Yes it does!
Consider the evidence:
Stress related disorders account for between 60 and 90 percent of all health care visits.
In wages alone, absenteeism costs about $30 billion per year. The total loss, including lost productivity, is estimated to be as high as $150 billion.
In Canada, many corporations offer Employee Assistance Programs delivered by EAP providers such as Sheppell-FGI. These companies invest to help employees cope with family issues and stress related illness because it improves productivity and business.
Research by Health Canada shows that every corporate dollar invested in wellness returns nearly 3½ dollars to the corporation.
