Corporate Health and Wellbeing
It’s not just about the pay packet anymore. If you’re a culture driven workplace you understand the importance of investing in your employees. Attracting and keeping the best people extends to the culture you build and maintain. Workplaces are becoming more aware of the importance of creating positive and safe work environments to ensure their employees remain healthy and happy to reduce the incidence of workers compensation claims.
It is estimated that it costs the Australian economy $61.8 billion dollars per year due to work related injury and disease, with injury and musculoskeletal disorders accounting for 90% of serious claims in 2014-15.
On the ground, this directly affects employers through increased workers compensation premiums and payments paid to injured or incapacitated workers from workers compensation jurisdictions. Indirect costs to employers are seen in terms of lost productivity, loss of current and future earnings and staff retraining.
We coach organisations in how to minimise the risk of workers compensation claims and what you can do as an employer to actively support injured or unwell employees to recover and return to work.
It’s proven that workplaces who care about the health and wellness of their staff result in happier, healthier employees satisfied with their jobs. This translates to an increase in productivity and reduction in staff turn over saving $$$ for the organisation.
