Companies increase commitment to employee wellbeing

46% of companies have an employee wellbeing strategy in place - a significant increase from 33% and 30% in 2009 and 2008 respectively. This is according to this year's Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Absence Survey in partnership with Simplyhealth.

In the last year, despite tough economic times, 22% of companies have increased their spend on wellbeing, while only 9% have reduced spend in this area.

Helen Dickinson of Simplyhealth says: "To help ensure wellbeing programmes remain, companies need to be proactive and find the most cost effective ways to help prevent employees being off work, and getting those who are, back to work quickly."
