Latest research from Simplyhealth has found that three quarters of employers do not correlate employee health and wellbeing to productivity.
Companies could be missing a trick as employees value health and wellbeing at work above career progression opportunities.
Three quarters of employees whose employer cares a great deal about their health and wellbeing describe themselves as very loyal. The failure to correlate benefits with productivity could mean that employers do not fully understand the impact they can have, and are missing a key opportunity to engage with staff.
James Glover for Simplyhealth says, "The workforce is under pressure and over a quarter of employers admit they have increased workloads. So it is important to support the needs of employees. Smart employers need to recognise that investing in people will not only benefit the business now, but in the future."
