Want to be more productive?
Want to being your ‘A’ game to office everyday?
Keen on tackling your daily tasks with motivation?
The solution is simple: Give importance to your health!
It may sound unimportant or downright silly, but what you eat, how much you exercise, whether you smoke or not, all directly impact your productivity levels.
A healthy diet promotes good health, and employee wellness is tied so closely to worker efficiency that 77% of lost productivity is attributable to health-related issues, according to a recent study.
Furthermore, employees who did not regularly eat whole grains, fruits and vegetables were 66% more likely than healthy eaters to say they had experienced a decrease in productivity.
Exercise, getting enough sleep and whether a worker smokes also are key factors that determine whether an employee is bringing his or her “A” game to work on an everyday basis.
Employees look to their employers for help in all of these areas, with 87% saying health and wellness offerings are a consideration when they are deciding where to work.
Businesses have a lot at stake, too. Improvements in employee health and fewer medical claims can result in average savings from $3.27 to $5.81 for every $1 invested in wellness, other studies concluded.
