The burden of employee wellness programs is staggering. When you consider that over 75% or workers in Canada suffer from work-related stress and chronic health conditions costing companies 35% of healthcare bill. it’s easy to see how this affects productivity levels on an individual level as well, especially considering many employees with these problems aren’t even aware they have them! With a simple solution like keeping your staff healthy by implementing some aspects into their lives outside work (like taking breaks), not only will turnover decrease but so too does lost income due absence because people don’t get sick often enough anymore when given time off every day prior to the work.Employee wellness program can manage the health and mental state of employees well. Which in turn result into increased turnover, and reduced absenteeism.

Top Employee Wellness Programs in Canada

Corporates are now exploring the option of enrolling in wellness programs that can help them reduce their health care spending. With increasing employee stress and suicide rates, it is no wonder why many employers see this move towards encouraging employee mental and physical well-being as a way to save money on costly medical treatments or surgeries that often come with high costs from pharmaceutical companies without corresponding benefits such as lower insurance premiums. Below is the list of some of the top wellness programs run by businesses in Canada.

Mental Health Counseling

Yoga or Fitness Classes

Yoga or Fitness classes can improve physical, mental, and social well-being in a company’s workforce by encouraging the practice throughout their workday–and it doesn’t stop there. Guided meditation sessions also benefit from being offered alongside guided movement activities such as yoga to help manage stress levels better for employees who have difficulty focusing on one thing at once.

Chronic disease management

The Canadian workforce is suffering from a chronic disease – over 25% of all employees in the Canada have diabetes or hypertension. Both can be treated by making positive changes to diet and exercise routine, but many don’t know about this because they’re not aware how much it affects productivity at work. But now there are programs that offer medical care for these disorders as well as information on what employers need do so their staff members become healthy again while staying productive during their own shift.

Women health (PCOS | Fertility)

It is important for Canadian companies to focus on women’s health issues because they make up nearly half the country’s workforce.

With more affordable visits and controlling costs for businesses with this form of service through online technology; small business owners are taking advantage as well in Canada by offering their own version on how one can receive care from specialists all around them instead of traveling far distances just because they don’t have insurance coverage or time off work while you’re sick – which could result into not being able see your doctor at all until much later than necessary.

Based on a poll with different companies in Canada, large companies (>1000 employees) spend over $200 per employee per month on employee wellness and health benefits. Smaller companies in Canada, on the other hand, spend around $60 per employee per month. 

The wellbeing of your employees ultimately affects your workplace and business performance. Following are some of the costs that a typical large company in Canada may incur due to wellness and health issues (based on Mercer data):

High Turnover: Employee attrition costs 90%–200% of a departing employee’s salary

High Absenteeism: 78% of employees miss work due to mental health concerns

Lost Productivity: Productivity losses linked to absenteeism & turnover cost ~$2,000 per employee.

Comparing this $2,000 loss with the $200 wellness spend per employee, the ROI seems to be great for employers in Canada.
