Wellbeing in the workplace means creating an environment where physical and mental health are as important as physical safety. We all understand that employers have a duty of care in preventing physical injury and illness during the working day, but now more companies are switching on to the fact that supporting the mental and physical health of employees is equally as important.
It doesn't need to be an entirely altruistic response, either. Research consistently shows that when workers feel happy and supported in the workplace, they're more productive and they perform better at their jobs. Workplace wellbeing can take on several forms that can be adapted to your business and personnel. It could mean promoting physical health.
We know that exercise in the workplace increases focus and productivity; it helps manage stress, can help treat employee burnout as well as reduce illness. Crucially, it also reduces incidences of absence and presenteeism two things that cost the UK economy £73 billion each year.
According to the British Heart Foundation, businesses that invest in the physical and mental health of their employees could see an ROI of £4.17 for each £1 spent. What's more, the global economy could be boosted by up to $100 billion each year if employers were able to encourage employees to exercise the equivalent of just 15-minutes walking every day.
