The Business Case

It makes good business sense to invest in the health and wellbeing of your most important asset, your staff.

In today’s highly competitive business environment, organisations are under continual pressure to improve performance, increase profits and drive down costs. Businesses are increasingly recognising that the crucial factor to their survival and success is the people that they employ and that promoting the health of their workforce has a significant impact on their bottom line.

The potential costs of an unhealthy workforce in the UK are staggering. The Confederation of British Industry estimates that employee absence cost the UK economy £13.2 billion (2007), with the average employee taking almost 6.7 days off, and it’s not just about those that don’t make it to work, research by the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health highlights that the costs of staff working below par because of mental health issues costs businesses a further £15 billion each year.

With the stakes so high, it makes good business sense to invest in the health and wellbeing of your most important asset, your staff - even more so when you take into consideration that the potential return on investment (ROI) can be as high as 1:3!
