Corporate Retreats

Workplace wellness isn’t just about enhancing a workplace culture, it’s also about preventing a multitude of drawbacks. Choosing to neglect workplace wellbeing can cause a domino effect, as one consequence leads to another.

Studies have conjured evidence demonstrating the extent of these effects. Perhaps the most obvious consequence for employers is the cost of work-related injury and illness, which was estimated to cost Australian employers $10.2 billion in 2005-2006 alone. In terms of sick leave, findings show unhealthy workers take up to 9 times more sick leave than healthy workers.

Poor physical health is by no means the only concern: mental wellbeing is of huge importance, with stress being one of the biggest issues (it is the number one reason for workplace absenteeism).

Even when an employee is present in the office, a poor mental wellbeing will most certainly cause additional issues, including decreased productivity and engagement. In fact, it is estimated that reduced staff performance is 2 to 7 times costlier than absenteeism.

As employees are the cornerstone of any business, their health is crucial. Not only does a good workplace wellbeing avoid the discussed costs, but it simply makes the business a better place to be. Overall, the business is headed for an outstanding reputation, amongst employees and the public alike.

The idea of mental health in the workplace often takes a backseat. This is concerning, as studies show 1 in 6 Australian workers will experience a mental illness, costing the Australian economy over $12 billion per year.

When it comes to mental wellbeing, you may have noticed that mindfulness has attracted a lot of attention. It’s not only individuals who are experiencing the benefits, but businesses are also getting onboard. Indeed, mindfulness at work has become a proven solution to counteract stress and reinvigorate staff.

Make it happen

Although it can be daunting, fostering a workplace culture of wellness is essential to every business’ future. Like planting a tree, it seeds grow for a sustainable future, where employees thrive in their careers and can be their best selves.
