Well-being programs that engage people
Companies are increasingly appreciating the importance of health and well-being and its effect on the organization's bottom line. Studies consistently show that when companies invest in the health and well-being of individual employees, the organization benefits.
- 88 percent of employees who feel that they have a higher well-being also feel that they are more engaged at work
- According to SAP’s Business Health Culture Index (BHCI), a measure of the general cultural conditions that enable employees to stay healthy and balanced, a 1 percent point change in the BHCI can impact our operating profit by €80-90M.1
- Organizations with cultures and programs supporting employee health and well-being are perceived as more desirable by job candidates.
- Increases in employee well-being have been associated with 35 percent lower turnover rate. This translates into savings of approximately $19.5 million for a typical 10,000 person company.
When well-being programs are instituted successfully, the benefits on health and the bottom line are clear. Research shows that changing behaviors, like reducing stress, can directly impact as many as one million people per day who miss work, which translates into a loss of $150 billion to $300 billion annually for U.S. employers.
