It’s well documented that leading a healthy active lifestyle can provide an individual with many health and social welfare benefits. However, the benefits of having a healthy active workforce in the world of work are largely overlooked.
Some of the benefits of leading a healthy active lifestyle include;
- Reduce the probability of contracting illnesses
- Reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression
- Improve self-esteem and self-confidence
- Improve sharpness and clarity of mind
- Improve sleep
- Make someone better able to cope with stress
These benefits, whilst being highly beneficial to the individual, can also be so for a business. There are a number of reasons for this, such as a reduction in employee absenteeism, which in turn reduces sick pay costs. Employee production is also increased, as employees are happier and healthier, which helps to promote a better attitude towards work, and greatly improve team morale. Which of course, must sound incredibly appealing to any business owner, large or small.
From this, it’s fair to conclude that providing a workforce with the best opportunities to lead a good lifestyle makes perfect business sense. This can be done through access to healthy foods, access to fitness facilities, or simply making employees aware of the personal benefits of leading such a lifestyle.
