Wellness at Work: Do you have it?

You’ve worked hard to build the best team that you can, you know it's important to invest in their health and wellness to keep them happy, healthy, and working at their best. Indoor plants will increase available oxygen, natural light in the office boosts productivity and corporate wellness programs are increasingly encouraging employees to engage in self-care to motivate employees. These trends are emerging as we learn more about the reach and scope of corporate burnout. According to CNBC, “Job burnout accounts for an estimated $125 billion to $190 billion in health-care spending each year and has been attributed to type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, gastrointestinal issues, high cholesterol and even death for those under the age of 45.”

Perhaps more alarming, a recent Gallup study has found that 67% of full-time employees have experienced some degree of burnout in their work life. Beyond the cost to your employees, personal satisfaction and the cost of insuring against major medical expenses, (burned-out employees are 23% more likely to visit the emergency room,) Gallup found that, “Burned-out employees are 63% more likely to take a sick day and 2.6 times as likely to be actively seeking a different job.”

When the accumulation of stress and exhaustion manifest themselves as burnout, it has real costs for your company. Lack of support from managers has been identified as a root cause of burnout, but The American Psychiatric Association has found a sense of community in the workplace and encouraged self-care routines can buffer employees against burnout.

 Group wellness programs provide a positive, pro-social atmosphere for employees to interact and grow to see each other as an integrated support system. The Float Corporate Wellness Program offers unique ways to actively recognize your employees for all that they do, decrease symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety; and help their bodies work more efficiently and in better alignment.
