Just as it’s important for us to check the state of your workplace health with an HR audit, it’s crucial that the health of your workers is in tip-top condition. The cost of sickness absence, turnover and your reputation as a good employer can all be a affected by unhealthy staff.
Did you know that sickness absence costs UK businesses just under £30bn every year? What you want is for your workers to be happy and healthy and for that to impact your business in a positive and productive way.
Alongside encouraging workplace health initiatives that promote psychological and physical wellness –
from rewards for cycling to work and the supply of healthy breakfasts to holistic wellness toolkits for dealing with stress and encouraging a positive company culture – one of the best ways to do this is to introduce a company healthcare policy, the implementation of which has been found to reduce sickness absence by more than 80%.
