Why should we integrate an Employee Wellness strategy?
Employee Wellness is fast emerging as a fundamental agenda point in the boardroom but there is still a lot of work to be done. Whilst some businesses have an informal approach, few have a strategic and comprehensive programme. Part of this is because few businesses fail to appreciate the huge effect poor employee health and engagement have on their key business objectives.
Below are just some of the top facts outlining why there has never been a more important time to invest in Employee Wellness:
The economic burden and productivity losses associated with an unwell, disengaged workforce is huge. A recent Green and Black study estimated that overall costs of ill health among the working population was over $141 billion in the U.K.
At the same time, absenteeism was estimated to cost around $11.8 billion a year and presenteeism around $21.2 billion. Presenteeism (people coming into work sick) has more than tripled in the UK, growing from 26% in 2010 to 86% in 2018.

Millennials will make up 70% of the workforce in 5 years and they purposefully look to work only for organisations that foster their wellbeing. Furthermore 53% of millennials say a healthy work-life balance would make them stay at their job.
Attracting and retaining talent is a growing challenge. Businesses are fighting hard to secure and retain employees who are skilled, talented and motivated to work for their organisation.
Business is now extremely fast-paced and goal posts are shifting all the time and in the UK we are particularly challenged due to the uncertainty around Brexit. This means businesses are unsure how to plan for the future or able to anticipate what skills they will require. Flexibility and agility is key in business now and the people working for an organisation are crucial in achieving this goal.
People are increasingly using assigned time off to get work done e.g. annual leave and weekends. In a recent CIPD study 69% of respondants said this has occurred in their work place in the last 12 months.
Despite the rise in presenteeism and leavism, this same survey also found only 25% of employers are taking steps to discourage this unhealthy behaviour (CIPD Health & Wellbeing at Work 2018).
The Business case for employee wellness
Organisations promoting wellbeing are 3.5 times more likely to be creative and innovative, which is where businesses get ahead and outperform their competitors. An analysis by Deloitte examining existing workplace interventions identified potential to generate a return to business of between £1.50 and £9 for every £1 invested.
