Wellbeing in the workplace is probably something that all employers would like to give more focus to, but cost implications, time and other priorities tend to hold them back. With the need for businesses to become more competitive in a challenging market, the wellbeing of the people in any organisation is becoming more important. The reality however, is that businesses are continually under pressure to do more with less, employees are taking on more and more all the time and stress at work is at an all time high. Wellbeing provision is still more of a nice to have than an essential and organisations often lack the basic infrastructure to help alleviate work-related stress and associated issues.
We can help you to focus on wellbeing with budgets are under pressure with:
Private Healthcare Cash Plans
Stress Management Workshops
What impact will our services have on your bottom line?
If we support you to keep your staff health and motivated it will mean that they take less time off work and therefore save you money. If you look after your staff in a preventative way, it can help you directly cut the cost of absenteeism and re-recruitment.
In 2010/11 around 26.4 million working days were lost in the UK. Of these days, 22.1 million due to work-related illness and 4.4 million due to workplace injuries. Stress, depression or anxiety and musculoskeletal disorders accounted for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health, 10.8 and 7.6 million days respectively.
It only takes a small reduction in sickness, absenteeism and/or attrition to make any of our services one the most cost-effective solutions for any organisation. When staff feel valued and invigorated this has a direct, positive effect on productivity and overall morale.
If you staff are absent from work for a significant length of time or cannot return to work due to long term stress or other associated problems – the costs of re-recruitment are significant. For an employee on a salary of £20k, the re-recruitment costs are a minimum of £10,000, which does not include any other costs associated with the absent employee.
The costs are significant – and a small amount of spend on wellbeing will go a long way to prevent high levels of absenteeism.
