As the economy continues to improve, it’s natural for employees to start looking at the benefits your competitors are offering.
If one of your company’s top players decides to defect to the competition due to a unique benefit offering, the result can be catastrophic. Not only could your business experience a decline in productivity, the costs associated with finding new talent and trying to fill the void in the meantime could be incalculable.
One way to stay competitive in this increasingly aggressive job market is to invest in a sound wellness program. It may sound arbitrary, but it’s not. In today’s health-intoxicated and cost-conscious world, the value of a wellness program is virtually beyond dispute. Studies show (PDF) that employers who offer wellness programs not only see an increase in overall productivity, they find their worker pool much more engaged.
