Why Employee Wellness?
Over recent years, the Middle East has undergone a significant change in thinking on the importance of investing in the maintenance of a healthy, balanced and subsequently engaged workforce.
In addition to facing changes in healthcare legislation and soaring medical insurance costs, employers are becoming more aware of the direct costs of sickness absenteeism as they seriously affect productivity and engagement levels. The COVID 19 global pandemic has served to further highlight the importance of monitoring and supporting employee wellness.
According to Harvard studies, introducing health and wellness programs into the workplace can decrease healthcare costs, leading to lower health insurance premiums and reduce absenteeism due to illness.
As well as supporting a healthier, more engaged and loyal workforce, this enhances the employer's credibility and subsequent ability to attract new talent.
Take care of your employees and they will do the same for your business
