Staff Are Not Engaged, Low Camaraderie.
Based on 42 published studies, a wellness program could reduce health care costs by 28% and could reduce sick days by 28%. There was an average 61% participation rate in the programs.
Employees are Not at Work or Barely Working.
Low engagement is a reflection of employees lacking a sense of purpose and social connectivity at work. When they aren’t using their sick days, they are more distracted at work. Often, they lack passion, have low job satisfaction, and productivity suffers.
Provide Opportunities for Connection within the Workplace.
70 percent of employees believe wellness programs contribute to their overall job satisfaction. Workplace wellness programs encourage connections among employees through group activities and friendly challenge competitions.
