6 BENEFITS OF HEALTHY EMPLOYEES:
IMPROVED MENTAL HEALTH FROM EMPLOYEES
Compared to people who reported doing no exercise, people who exercised reported 1.5 fewer days of poor mental health each month -- a reduction of 43.2% (2.0 days for people who exercised vs 3.4 days for people who did not exercise).
CONTAINMENT OF HEALTH CARE COSTS
It’s a fact: healthy employees cost less than unhealthy employees. Recent studies by the University of Michigan, for instance, show that employers who emphasize fitness can save an average of: $1,100 a year for every employee who stops smoking, $1,200 a year on employees who lower their cholesterol levels from 240 mg to 190 mg and $177 a year for each worker who sheds enough pounds to move from obesity (more than 30 pounds overweight) to a healthy weight.
INCREASED WORKPLACE PRODUCTIVITY
Workers who exercise on a regular basis tend to have more energy and be more productive while at work. The average office worker’s efficiency decreases 50% for the final two hours of the day, while regular exercisers work at full efficiency all day, amounting to a 12.5% increase in productivity.
INCREASED WORKPLACE MORALE
Active and healthy employees tend to have a more positive and energetic outlook that can keep morale high within an organization.
DECREASED EMPLOYEE TURNOVER
Many employees view health promotion programs as an added perk that makes them feel valued and appreciated by their employer. Employees who feel valued are less likely to seek employment elsewhere, decreasing turnover and the time, energy and money needed to recruit, hire and train new workers.
When an employee misses work due to illness, other employees must pick up the slack. Employees suffering from a chronic health condition are likely to miss more work than healthy employees. Helping workers make positive lifestyle changes can reduce absenteeism and the strain it places on company morale and resource.
