“Take care of your employees and they’ll take care of your business” - Richard Branson
When it comes to ensuring a successful workplace, there’s no denying the importance of a productive workforce. Yet, if performance determines success, what determines performance?
In a society and work culture driven by tight deadlines, high expectations and piles of seemingly endless task lists, it’s easy to lose sight of the number one factor that contributes to high business performance. No, it’s not education and experience and nor is it business operations. The number one key to achieving a high performing workplace is through maintaining the health and wellbeing of your workforce. As your company’s greatest asset, the difference between a healthy and unhealthy workforce is often the difference between a thriving company and one that is barely staying afloat. Here’s why employee health determines company success:
1. Lower Turnover Rate
It’s no secret that a thriving company relies on thriving employees. Why? It’s simple! When an employee is healthy, happy and engaged in their work, they’re more likely to stay in their current job and play an important role in contributing to the success and future strategy of your company.
As a business owner or manager, having a high turnover should be of great concern to you. The unfortunate reality is, nothing positive comes from a high turnover rate because it generally reflects staff treatment and perceived value, as well as the quality of your internal operations, which in turn impacts the performance of your team and their commitment to genuinely bettering your company. The primary issue with a high turnover is first and foremost the impact on productivity, as well as the cost of hiring and training a new employee.
2. Higher Productivity
Ensuring employee health and wellbeing goes far beyond simply creating a vibrant and happy atmosphere in your office. It’s a proven fact that encouraging health and wellbeing in the workplace is directly linked to increased productivity, too!
Gone are the days where investing in employee health schemes are viewed as nothing more than a waste of money. The statistics are there and they all point to happy and healthy employees being the overachievers in your company.
3. Bottom Line Success
By now, it should come as no surprise that great health means even greater business. When it comes to the bottom line, implementing a strategy to improve and maintain optimal employee health and wellbeing is vital for improving your ROI. Believe it or not, placing an importance on bettering employee wellbeing can go along way in improving job satisfaction, retention rate, productivity and performance, and in turn, business performance metrics and profitability.
