Workplace health and well-being allows an employee to flourish and achieve their full potential. Moreover, your employees reaching their potential physically, mentally, socially, intellectually or spiritually will benefit of themselves and their organisation.
To demonstrate, since the ‘Building the case for wellness’ report was published in 2008, there is growing recognition regarding the benefits of workplace health and well-being programs.
It is important to realise, stress, work pressure and mental health occurrence has increased dramatically over the last 10 years. For instance, ’Presenteeism’ based on psychological problems alone costs the UK economy £15.1bn a year.
Crucially, the CBI recognise that with living and working longer, businesses have the opportunity to influence behaviours. In addition, they can promote a culture of good health and support those with health problems to remain in or return to the workplace.
