“Value your people” was the theme for the 7th annual Healthy Workplace week(2007).
Have we forgotten how to value our employees…
- Absenteeism has been increasing steadily since the 90′s
- Job stress has been linked causally to chronic diseases such as heart disease, depression and diabetes.
- In the last 30 years obesity has risen from around 14% to almost 25%
Workplace Health week was about celebrating employees, their successes and accomplishments. It was a week where employers took extra time to recognize their employees and show how vital their employees are to the success of their organization.
Healthy organizations consistently outperform other organizations having below-average rate of absenteeism, accidents and stress related illnesses.
Is your organization proactive in its relationship with its employees?
Has your organization adopted any workplace health strategies?
Have you seen the results organizational health strategy’s have on business productivity?
Yes, thats right, in a healthy workplace, people want to come to work!
