How will a workplace wellbeing programme benefit your workplace?

An average adult will spend approximately 50% of their waking hours at work. There is a measurable link between a staff member's wellbeing and how productive they are during this time.

Many factors within the workplace can impact on staff wellbeing, which makes the workplace an ideal environment for addressing health and wellbeing and promoting healthy habits. Doing so can have significant benefits for both staff and employers.

  • Improved wellbeing

  • Increased job satisfaction
  • Increased ability to balance work and family life.
Benefits for employers:
  • Reduced absenteeism costs
  • Increased productivity

  • Demonstrate that the business cares about its employees.
