The benefits of a healthy workforce

All companies are required under the Health and Safety at Work Act (2015) to provide a safe work environment, free from hazards. Workplace wellness requires a focus on employee wellbeing from a holistic point of view, moving beyond pure health and safety. This includes physical, mental and emotional health (WHO).

Companies with workplace wellness programmes may experience a range of benefits; these can include less instances of absent workers as well as increased productivity and employee retention. By creating a culture of health, employees can encourage positive habits in their peers and improve the entire organization.
