Workplace wellbeing programmes contribute to a healthier workforce and can benefit employers by:

  • Increasing employee productivity
  • Increasing employee job satisfaction and loyalty
  • Reducing absenteeism and presenteeism
  • Reducing injuries and Health and Safety costs
  • Improving the organisation’s reputation and social responsibility efforts

Healthy Workplaces also have the potential to reach employee families and communities and have further societal implications such as lowered burden on health services and insurance.
