Did you know that 82% of employees consider company culture an important factor when deciding whether to accept a job? And a fifth of employees say their ‘desk time’ work culture has a negative impact on their mental and physical health...
Some pretty compelling statistics you might think, but it’s surprising how many well-staffed wealthy organisations only pay lip service to the idea of creating and maintaining a positive and productive culture. And they ignore its impact at their peril.
Your workplace culture can be more than just a tool for attracting staff. Creating positive workplace culture can actually keep your employees healthy and productive and businesses can prosper financially while seeing their medical costs decrease. A negative workplace culture could be doing the exact opposite.
Dr. Leena Johns, Head of Health & Wellness, MAXIS Global Benefits Network, said “All organisations should look to create a nurturing and supportive environment that encourages productivity. A strong workplace culture can help motivate employees and deliver improved financial performance, with a measurable increase in revenue. Unhealthy or stressed employees are a cost in terms of decreased productivity, rapid staff turnover, increased healthcare costs and absenteeism.
“There are a number of factors that impact workplace culture, from the physical environment of the office to the benefits and corporate wellness programmes offered by the employer, all of which have the potential to foster a healthier and more productive workforce.”
