Workplace Health – Worker Productivity

How-Multitasking-is-making-you-Less-ProductiveWorkplace health programs that improve employee health by reducing, preventing or controlling diseases can affect worker productivity.

Improvements in physical, mental, and emotional health enhance stamina, concentration, and focus leading to greater work output.

The cost savings of providing a workplace health program can be measured against:

  • Absenteeism among employees due to illness or injury
  • Reduced overtime to cover absent employees
  • Costs to train replacement employees
