What Are the Benefits of an Employee Wellness Program?

02/21/2017 |

When businesses concentrate on wellness efforts for their employees with specific goals, real results have occurred

Does your company have a health or wellness program put in place? It should, according to a survey conducted by CRE professional association CoreNet Global and worldwide property advisor CBRE Group. The results of the report show that when a company focuses on employee health and wellness, workers report increases in engagement, retention rates increase and absenteeism declines.

When businesses concentrate on wellness efforts for their employees with specific goals, real results have occurred, according to the survey:

  • 19% reported a decrease in absenteeism;
  • 25% reported increased retention;
  • 47% reported increased employee engagement.

Among the tangible offerings companies include (but are not limited to):

  • Operating gyms, health clubs and wellness clinics;
  • Implementing green cleaning standards;
  • Managing a bike share program;
  • Changing food options and vendors; and
  • Offering fitness challenges, yoga classes, mental relaxation and group meditation.

“Corporations that take an active role in managing health and wellness programs for employees are seeing positive returns on those investments,” says Tim Venable, senior vice president at CoreNet Global. “As the line between work and personal life is increasingly blurred due to technology, remote work and 24/7 access to information, employers are taking measures to ensure employee health and wellness.”
