Here are Five Reasons to Expand Your Workplace Wellness System...
If you lead an organization, a team, or department, you will notice that employees’ needs, and stress levels are not what they used to be even five years ago. In case you are wondering if this is impacting your profitability the answer is yes. According to www.careerbuilder.com, 61% of employees are burned out on the job; and Workplace Safety and Prevention Services estimates that stress-related absences cost Canadian employers about $3.5 billion each year.
The world Health Organization has predicted that by 2020, one third of our workforce will be vulnerable to mental health disease; meaning they will have had it or are susceptible to it. Those statistics are the realities at work. Some key factors that are adding to the stress load at work are poor time management, communication, prioritization, and decision-making skills. Thus, we are all stressed out and overwhelmed, leading to many other health and wellness issues.
If you are considering whether to have a workplace wellness strategy that is comprehensive and inclusive of the whole employee well-being, then I encourage you to do so. Workplace wellness systems serve to improve the mental well-being of your employees, allowing them to build resilience and maintain their mental and emotional wellness. It also increases their level of productivity as well as revitalize your workplace system to be more responsive and empowering.
A comprehensive wellness system blends fluidly with other programs and services in your organization to ensure people are not falling through the crack. Here are five main reasons why you should consider a workplace wellness system.
