The Evidence For Investing In Worker Health and Wellebing
Evidence shows that good employee health and wellbeing boosts organisational health. There are multiple reasons why investing in programs to enhance worker health and wellbeing makes good business sense.
Employers who run health and wellbeing programs do so because they want to:
> Improve work performance and productivity
> Reduce costs associated with absenteeism, presenteeism, disability and workers’ compensation
> Improve the culture of the organisation and retain existing employees
> Improve the organisation’s image, attract talented employees and fulfil corporate social responsibility obligations ¹
Health and Wellbeing Programs Save Employers Money
There is an abundance of emerging evidence indicating that successful health and wellbeing programs provide an excellent return on investment. For instance, one meta-evaluation looking at economic return of worksite health promotion programs found on average programs:
> decrease sick leave absenteeism by 25.3%
> decrease workers compensation costs by 40.7%
> decrease disability management costs by 24.2%; and
> save $5.81 for every $1 invested in employee health and wellbeing ²
Therefore, investing in employee health and wellbeing programs aim to reduce worker’s compensation costs ³
“High level of stress in the workplace is a major costly burden for employers in terms of reported increased accident rates, lost time, absenteeism, lower productivity and effectiveness and increased insurance premiums”

Mindfulness Wellness programs in the workplace promotes an opportunity to “slow down” and observe what is happening around you in the present moment. Most organisations today operate in a fast paced environment in a more reactive mode rather than a proactive mode. This appears to be the necessary norm in todays busy workplace.
Living in a world which is constantly moving quicker, not only increases the risk of injury, but also reduces productivity and increase in mental health issues.
