Why act now?

The business case for making health and wellbeing your top priority

Ignoring, delaying or side-lining employee health & wellbeing is a costly mistake.

The current global workplace trends and statistics speak for themselves:

Challenges facing companies in the current times:

Dealing with the hiring crisis

Employee expectations are shifting. Failure to prioritize employee health and wellbeing has been identified as a considerable contributing factor to the so-called 'Great Resignation'.

  • 65% of employees are re-evaluating the place work has in their life (Gartner, 2021)
  • 30K Euro - The average cost of replacing one employee who leaves a company (Gallup 2022)
  • 53% of people are more likely to prioritise their health and wellbeing over work than before the pandemic (Microsoft 2022)
When employees disengage, it is costly

One of the major benefits gained from creating a thriving work culture means a boost in employee engagement.

  • 60% of people are emotionally detached at work and 19% report being actively disengaged (Gallup 2022)
  • Low engagement alone costs the global economy $7.8 trillion (Gallup 2022)
Remote and hybrid work is now the norm

Many employees are expecting the flexibility to work where it suits them. Remote & hybrid work can mean you have to work harder and smarter as an employer to create the cultural conditions for strong connection and collaboration within your teams.

  • 40% employees state that workplace flexibility is a top motivator in whether they stay in their current role (41% state that salary is) - (McKinsey & Co. 2022)
Stress and burnout are on the rise

...and there's a growing consensus / expectation that companies need to do more to actively prevent it

  • 77% of employees have experienced burnout and work-related stress (Gallup, 2021)
  • Workplace stress accounts for almost 50% increase in voluntary employee turnover (NIOSH 2021)
Now more than ever, your company culture is on public display

More companies are being called out in the media for having an unhealthy or so-called 'toxic culture' - If cracks appear in the foundation of your company culture - this not only creates a disengaged and unhealthy employee experience, it can be hugely damaging to your brand as an employer.
