Why companies should invest in well-being at work?

To reduce stress

If your company implements methods to increase wellness in the workplace (such as sports sessions, healthy snacks, mindfulness methods, etc.) it would help to reduce work-related stress. Doing sport, eating healthy snacks, practicing meditation, or mindfulness will help in an impressive way your employees to deal with stress.

To increase productivity and motivation

Employees will feel better in the workplace and will be more motivated during working hours. Several studies have shown that healthy employees will make better performances because they will be more focused.

To build strong teams

If employees have the opportunity to share extra-work activities, it will be easier for them to build relationships and to get to know each other outside the job positions. So wellness initiatives will boost the cooperation between workers.
