Almost nine in 10 employers have benefited from supporting the health and wellbeing of their staff, according to research from Group Risk Development (GRiD).
One in three employers (33%) said that supporting health and wellbeing is "integral to their company ethos" and in turn helps fulfil their business objectives, while 31% said that successfully managing health and wellbeing results in reducing absenteeism.
Meanwhile, around one in four (26%) said that supporting the health and wellbeing of staff acts as a differentiator when it comes to recruitment and retention, and 19% of employers said that potential clients are interested in staff wellbeing policies.
Katharine Moxham, spokesperson for GRiD said: "During a pitch process or when responding to a request for tender, most businesses are accustomed to being asked for specific environmental, CSR or equal opportunities policies, etc. What's really interesting is that, judging by this research, that list may now extend to how well an organisation looks after its staff too."
