According to a new survey, 93% of small business owners say that the health of their staff is important to them
.… or at least their bottom line.
Yet in the UK only 22% of those businesses currently have a ‘wellness programme’ in place. Of course, that isn’t all the fault of business owners. There are stumbling blocks to such programmes, not the least of which is a lack of interest from employees.
But according to the statistics, businesses might want to make more of an effort to get the ball rolling. Companies with wellness programmes in place report fewer sick days, higher staff morale, and increased overall productivity.
“Work isn’t always the best exercise in the world,” admits Maris Interiors Managing Director David Cannon. “You’re sat staring at a monitor, tapping away at a keyboard, perhaps eating a Twix – it’s not exactly a health spa. But to do our jobs well we need to be in good shape, so it’s in everyone’s best interests to keep the company healthy. Just as long as that doesn’t mean enforced Zumba classes!”
