Promoting employee wellness is of significant importance to employers. Healthy employees are more productive, more engaged and drive healthcare costs low for the organization. In ten years past since, employees are not as happy to simply have a job. They are looking for more engagement and fulfillment. Because of this fundamental change, the focus has shifted from employee wellness to employee well-being.
Smart organizations understand that their primary goal is to enhance the performance of their people. In a knowledge work economy, people are the so-called ‘engines’ that keep the companies growing, adapting, improving, and innovating. Not surprisingly, thoughtful workplace design can be a powerful tool in supporting employee performance. And a collateral benefit is that what typically supports. Productivity enhances employee health and wellness – this is all interrelated.
Today, businesses of every size acknowledge that they can create and sustain a successful workplace health and wellness program. Many pursue this realization with passion. The end in mind is taking care of human resources.
Well-being is evolving and we need to follow suit. To truly achieve a holistic employee wellness program, employers must take into account all aspects of well-being: physical, financial, social, mental, and emotional health.
