The success of any company is highly dependent on the productivity of its employees. For employees to perform consistently at a high level in today’s demanding work environment, they must be fit, healthy and highly motivated. One way to achieve this is to invest in a good corporate wellness program.

Wellness programs focus on the physical well being of employees, looking after medical requirements and ensuring that personal health is a priority.

Though wellness programs started as perks for large corporations; today wellness programs are common among medium and small-sized businesses around the world.

Here are 4 reasons why your company needs an employee wellness program:

  • Decreased Healthcare Cost

The introduction of corporate wellness programs has proven to reduce healthcare cost for organizations. When employees are healthy employers spend less on healthcare thus allowing them to channel more resources to other critical aspects of the company.

  • Improves Productivity

A Poor employee can be defined as physically being at work but not working. Employees can stay beyond the normal working hours yet their level of productivity is very low. This is called presenteeism which is caused majorly by poor health. A good wellness plan will address this.

  • Reduces Health Risk

The basis of a wellness program is to help employees adopt a healthier lifestyle. This will affect employees’ diet, sleeping habit, exercises among others.  

  • Reduces Absenteeism

Poor health can cause employees to take time off work often. A good wellness program will educate, train and motivate employees to adopt a healthier lifestyle. For a company this is the bottom line, reduced absenteeism equals a reduction in costs and an increase in productivity.

At Truppr, we help employers maintain a fit, healthy and highly motivated workforce by creating evidenced based corporate wellness programs tailor-made for organisations.
