A workplace can save money and make their employees happy and healthy (and thus more productive) by fostering a company culture that puts health first. Some things that management can do to creat this environment are encouraging breaks where employees move around, providing wholesome food in the cafeteria, providing better health insurance that covers chronic illnesses, and sponsoring charity events such as 5k runs. Employers need to be especially aware of chronic illnesses and diseases that have no outward symptoms.
- Productivity is a topic that’s on every employer’s mind these days – how do we get more out of our employees for less?
- However, the answer might not lie in strict policies and procedures that push the employees to work.
- Instead, researchers suggest that productivity is built from the ground up, by creating a healthy, enjoyable workplace where people are motivated to produce.
“keep employees with chronic diseases, happier, healthier and more productive.”
