A More Dedicated Workforce

On-site wellness programs show how much you care

What we've noticed over the past couple years? Having a wellness program like corporate yoga on site sets a company apart from its competitors. Yes, there are the obvious perks. It can reduce work-associated injuries such as low back pain, and reduce work loss due to illness. Then the less obvious: helping employees develop a healthy way to combat anger and stress.

Even more, we find that a wellness program on site is a way of showing employees how much they mean to the company. By fostering an atmosphere of caring and appreciation, execs have found not only a more healthy workforce but a more dedicated one, with less turnover, increased productivity, AND more creative spark -- which translates to a better bottom line.

Studies show that investment in employee wellness generates savings in medical costs. In a meta-analysis of the literature on the costs and savings associated with employee wellness programs, a team of Harvard researchers found that:

“Medical costs fall by about $3.27 for every dollar spent on wellness programs,
and that absenteeism costs fall by about $2.73 for every dollar spent.” 1

Clearly, a healthier bunch of employees typically results in a healthier bottom line for your company. Additionally, healthier employees feel better and consequently perform better on the job, resulting in the following company benefits:

  • Enhanced retention of healthy employees (healthy employees can serve the company longer than sick employees)
  • Enhanced recruitment (people like working for companies that are known for taking good care of their employees)
  • Reduced absenteeism (healthy employees need less sick time)
  • Reduced presenteeism (healthy employees are more alert, energetic and focused)
  • Increased employee productivity
  • Decreased rates of illness and injuries
  • Improved employee satisfaction (employees enjoy a healthier body, mind and workplace)
By making small, long-term investments into positively impacting the health of your employees, you can realize the great benefits of a healthier company. Contact Kelly today to set up your free trial yoga session on site - or 610-730-2560.
