It’s becoming increasingly clear that a comprehensive employee wellbeing programme is essential in every workplace. Not only do an increasing number of prospective candidates look at the perks and culture of wellness when choosing where to work but there are massive financial benefits for employers. Conservative estimates state that for every $1 spent on employee wellbeing there is a $3 return on investment. This is purely based on a reduction in absenteeism and doesn’t include increased productivity, creativity and focus that comes with having access to a quality wellness programme.

Post 9-11 many New York based companies conducted evaluations of employee wellness. Employees who reported that they continued to feel the effects of trauma were advised to seek professional help to cope with it. When interviewed afterwards the employees said that they were grateful that they were asked how they were doing but felt disappointed that they were advised to seek external support. Rather than their employers taking an active role in employee wellbeing it was clear that their health and wellness was their own responsibility.

Where workplace stress contributes to negative effects on employee wellbeing it is imperative that the employer takes an active role in managing stress and supporting their employees health and wellness on a mental, emotional and physical level. Companies at the forefront of the employee wellness revolution, e.g Google and Apple, understand that the more fulfilled and happy employees are the more creative and productive they can be. In fact, studies indicate that employees who feel that their employer has got their back, so to speak, are more inclined to show greater loyalty, measurably increased productivity and critical thinking ability. A workplace is a community, the more supportive that community is, the happier and more productive its members are.
