Figures taken from the 2017 Britain's Healthiest Workplace survey has found that health related lost productivity is costing the UK economy an estimated £77.5 billion, which would reduce significantly with adequate investment in health and wellbeing.
With up to 25% of the UK’s working age population suffer from a long-term condition. Key UK health organisations have highlighted that weight related health problems are responsible for both a significant loss of productivity and increased absence from work.
Research from the same 2017 survey which comprises of a study of almost 32,000 workers across all UK industries, has revealed that employees lose, on average, the equivalent of 30.4 days of productive time each year as they take time off sick and underperform in the office as a result of ill-health (otherwise known as presenteeism).
Given that if we work full time, what we eat at work generally provides at least 60% of our total daily intake in an average working day. Consequently, workplace nutrition has the potential to significantly impact on our health. This reinforces how imperative it is that good quality food is available in the workplace and how organisations can offer powerful channels to support behavior change and healthier practices.
By improving the health of workers, employers can benefit by reducing absenteeism, facilitating more engaged and productive employees, reduced accidents and injuries, retaining workforce and enhancing the company reputation. The harnessing of wellbeing programs has the potential to improve workplace culture as well as workplace health by developing a closer congruence between employer and employee value, thus increasing the satisfaction level of employees. Demonstrating a sense of corporate social responsibility can also improve an organisation’s image with the public and can help an organisation become an “employer of choice”.
What is more is that productivity gains are likely to more than offset the costs of implementing interventions. C3 Collaborating for Health reviewed the evidence of effectiveness for workplace health initiatives at IBM and Intel over a 3 year period and in both cases report a positive return on investment.
