For knowing your small business

False economies

On the face of it, someone working longer hours may not seem like an issue. But the CIPD reports that there are several ways ill people working can end up costing your business. Not only do they run the risk of infecting other members of staff with their illness, they may work less effectively, make more mistakes and ultimately remain unwell for longer. Similarly, a work environment where staff feel obliged to work out of hours can grind down team morale.

Resetting the scales

Steve Thompson, managing director at Forward Role Recruitment, notes that “57% of employees would stay in their job longer if there was more effort put into looking after their wellbeing,” adding to that the same percentage believe their work quality would improve if more health measures were in place.

Findings by The Rewards & Employee Benefits Association suggest that employers are rolling out wellbeing strategies at a rate never seen before. Over half of respondents (54.8%) have no wellbeing strategy in place, but virtually all of this group plan to implement one in the next few years.
