Bdaily News - Supporting the health and wellbeing of staff has a positive impact on their business, say nine in ten employers

Nearly nine out of ten (89%) employers say that supporting the health and wellbeing of their staff has a positive impact on their business, according to research conducted by GRiD, the industry body for group risk.

When asked how that positive impact manifests itself on their business, employers were keen to promote the benefits of improved loyalty, engagement and reduced absence among existing staff. However, they also saw the wider benefits to the business too.

• 45% of employers believe that supporting the health and wellbeing of their staff demonstrates that they care about their employees, and that engenders loyalty and engagement.

• 42% of employers said that when their employees know they are supported with their overall health and wellbeing, it increases their engagement.

• 41% stated that productivity is increased when employees know that their employer supports them with their overall health and wellbeing. • 33% said it is integral to their company ethos to support their employees – including their health and wellbeing - and that helps them fulfil their business objectives.

• 31% believe that supporting health and wellbeing holistically helps manage absence, mitigating both the number and length of absences and helping staff return to work more quickly. • 26% think that supporting the health and wellbeing of staff differentiates them from their competitors, helping with employee recruitment and retention.

• 19% of employers say that potential clients are interested in how they look after staff and that having a good policy in place helps them win new clients.
