Workforce Challenges

From recruitment to reducing absenteeism, what challenges does your company face?

Recruitment & Retention

A Workforce survey found that 87% of employees consider health and wellness offerings when choosing an employer.

Happy staff are less likely to look for another job, so organisations retain staff for longer, saving the turnover costs and keeping the knowledge in-house.

When you offer your employees a wellness program you are saying, “We care about you and we want you to be healthy and happy”.

Recent KPMG survey of over 400 Australian CEO’s:

Improve Your ESG Score

Don’t forget the ‘S’ in ESG

An Employee Wellness Program that can provide anonymised, quantifiable data to demonstrate a direct improvement in the health and well-being of employees, can improve a corporate’s ESG score, as this makes it a more attractive prospect than another that doesn’t take social concerns into account. It’s as simple as that.

44% of employees ranked employee Health & Safety as a primary ESG issue
