Why Have a Workplace
Research into Workplace Wellness Programs tells us that they have been around for some time but with today’s technology and analytics it is becoming increasing hard to ignore their benefits and ef-fectiveness to both employers and employees.
Wellness isn’t just about physical fitness. Depression, stress and diet related illnesses have proved to be major sources of lost productivity. The good news is that organizations are realizing that they can manage, and even prevent some diseases by adopting a wellness program for their employees.
Case studies tell us that there are several different profiles for employees and how they view their health. There is also data to support that many of us have, not just bad work habits, we have behav-iors which put us at risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, and stress-related illnesses.
Maintaining a healthy workforce is a matter of both corporate responsibility and business necessity when it comes to the bottom line.
Healthy employees cost less….bottom line!

”These benefits are measurable. According to the Conference Board of Canada’s 2013 report Missing in Action: Absenteeism Trends in Canadian Organizations, the direct cost of absenteeism averaged 2.4% of gross
annual payroll in 2011 – 2012 – or $16.6 billion to the Canadian economy as a whole. Improved absenteeism rates achieved through wellness initiatives are helping to manage these significant costs. And findings from Phase 1 of the Sun Life-Ivey Canadian Wellness ROI Study estimate wellness programs save 1.5 – 1.7 days absenteeism or $251 per employee per year.” 3
