How healthy employees can save your company money

30 August 2019

Are you playing the long game or the short game in your business? While the thought of spending money in the short term may make you cringe, in the long-term, healthy employees can save your company money.


Case in point, if you have an employee who has quit because of health reasons or moves to a company with better health coverage, the cost of rehiring another employee, not to mention re-training and education can set you back thousands of dollars.


British business magnate, Richard Branson, once said, “Take care of your employees, and they will take care of your business. It’s as simple as that. Healthy, engaged employees are your top competitive advantage.”


And most employers know this. They know it’s essential for employees to be healthy to be productive and that healthy employees work smarter and faster. The trouble is they aren’t sure how to implement wellness strategies within their company.
