The benefits

A workplace health and wellbeing program is a valuable investment for your organisation. A healthy worker is likely to be more motivated, productive and take less sick leave. Research also shows that healthy workers are safer workers. Health is closely linked to happiness; by improving the health of your workers, they are more likely to lead happier lives and make your workplace a nicer place to work.

The business case

  • Healthy workers can be up to 30% more productive than unhealthy workers.
  • A workplace health program can reduce absence due to sickness by 21%.
  • Workers who smoke can cost business in terms of lost productivity due to smoking breaks and sick leave.
  • Poor health increases the likelihood of industrial accidents or injuries.
  • For every dollar employers invest in health promotion over a three year period, return on investment ranges from $1.40 to $4.70
