The Business Benefits of Healthy Employees

What Does Employee Health Mean?

Employee health refers not only to physical health, but mental and emotional health as well. This means employees can also cope with workplace pressures and manage their stress and emotions productively aside from being physically fit. Employee health is important whether your team works in a remote, hybrid, or office setting.

While it incurs some costs, investing in healthy employees is more cost-effective for organizations in the long run. Neglecting to support your employees’ health can lead to mounting insurance claims, sick pay and compensation costs.

In the US alone, companies are losing billions of dollars due to employee absenteeism and hampered productivity. Even when unwell or stressed employees log in to work, they may not be as productive and may only be showing up to avoid their supervisor’s wrath or losing their leaves or income.

Prioritizing Healthy Employees

A company culture that promotes employee health has the following goals:

  • Increasing job satisfaction and morale

  • Letting employees feel appreciated and respected

  • Reducing workplace absenteeism and presenteeism

  • Retaining staff and crafting better growth opportunities

  • Maintaining an atmosphere of unbiased processes, inclusivity, equality, and diversity

  • Promoting healthy interactions between coworkers and top management

Companies that prioritize and invest in employee health demonstrate that they recognize and value their employees’ contributions to the business and their role in its success.

A workplace that pushes its employees to be more productive without managing their health can fall into a vicious cycle. Ill and exhausted employees rarely work to the best of their abilities.

  • sick leave rates go up

  • employee turnover increases

  • workloads multiply

  • overworked employees are pressured to pick up the slack

Alternatively, a company that prioritizes its employees’ health promotes an engaging, inspiring, and motivating atmosphere in the workplace. Team members meet their targets and deadlines, are productive, and have a healthy work-life balance, which contributes to the company’s overall success.
