One of the most positive ways to reduce stress and promote well-being is exercise. Many employers have failed to adequately invest in the health and well-being of their employees, which is costing organisations billions each year. Workplaces can help increase the physical activity levels and thus improve the health of their employees, reduce sickness absence and consequently, increase their overall productivity. Evidence shows that undertaking physical activity can help prevent diseases, maintain a healthy weight and promote mental health and well-being. Encouraging fitness demonstrates a concern for employees’ well-being and it pays off.
With our individual and family memberships, an employer can demonstrate concern not only for the health and well-being of their employees, but also for their employees’ family members who are often actively involved in providing support or sharing the load of the stress and strains of modern life.
