5 Reasons to Promote Wellbeing at your workplace.
Increase productivity and engagement.
Balancing personal and professional lives can be hard work. When you help employees develop tools to better care for their personal lives they have more energy, better problem solving skills, and are more productive. (Plus, they’re more fun to be around.)
“HAPPY EMPLOYEES ARE 31% MORE PRODUCTIVE AT WORK, 37% BETTER AT SALES THAN THE SAME EMPLOYEES AT NEGATIVE, NEUTRAL OR STRESSED.”
- Shawn Achor, Psychologist, The Happiness Advantage.
2. Help employees make better decisions.
Mindfulness improves resiliency. Decluttering reduces decision fatigue. And that means more mental capacity for analytical thinking and decision making — on and off the job.
3. Improve communication across teams.
Meditation and mindfulness techniques can foster the ability to respond, rather than react, in difficult situations. Helping your employees create healthy habits, also helps build awareness, boost productivity, sharpen focus and skills crucial to better communication.
“Happy employees are better communicators, collaborators and decision makers. They’re also more likely to be engaged at work.”
–The Happiness Advantage
4. Decrease health-care costs.
Weight-loss programs and anti-smoking campaigns don’t address the full spectrum of health and wellness. Our workshops help people make healthier decisions and be more present for the tasks at hand. All with real tools to:
• Clear physical and mental clutter.
• Reduce decision fatigue
• Increase happiness levels
For every $1 invested in workplace wellness, the average company saves $6 on medical and absenteeism costs. | Medical costs fall by about $3.27 for every dollar spent on wellness programs and absenteeism costs fall by about $2.73 for every dollar spent.
– Health Affairs (2010)
