What is an Employee Wellness Program?
Employee wellness programs, also referred to as worksite wellbeing programs or employee well-being initiatives are a collection of different activities within an organization aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles among their employees. A recent survey reveals that over 70% of people in America suffer from work stress and this costs 35% productivity loss for companies here in the Malaysia alone. But if you invest some time into creating an Employee Wellness Program (EWP), then not only will it help improve your workers’ health but also increase profitability by reducing these numbers significantly – up around 40%.
Top Employee Wellness Programs in Malaysia
The wellness programs in the Malaysia are typically focused on two key dimensions: employee mental and physical health. In Malaysia, EAPs have been a primary means for most companies to address this area but recently more corporations there have started signing up for PWA (physical wellbeing) which includes activities such as chronic disease management or nutrition counseling among others depending on their needs. Below is the list of some of the top wellness programs run by businesses in Malaysia.
Mental Health Counseling
Every employee in the Malaysia experienced just two minutes of chronic stress each day, We’re talking about a whole lot less than the average person experiences throughout their lifetime! It turns out that mental health counseling can improve employees’ well-being by reducing anxiety and improving sleep patterns. Mental health programs are available through EAPs (employee assistance programs) which provide support for running these sessions with company staff members as needed – all without breaking any bank budgets at work.
An estimated 30% of Malaysians experience some form or another on the job discomfort which equates outwardly speaking about 1 million workers in the Malaysia alone dealing every day not just with sore muscles from lifting heavy objects all day long.
Yoga or Fitness Classes
Yoga classes have been proven to promote physical, mental and social well-being. Fitness sessions are an easy way of addressing all three areas while still being fun. Plus they don’t need be limited just to fitness because guided meditation can help improve your mood as well.
Yoga enhances relaxation skills which helps alleviate stress in our day-to meet life’s challenges more efficiently than ever before.
Chronic disease management
When it comes to chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, 25% of all workforce in the Malaysia are affected. Both diseases can be cured via positive changes in diet or exercise routine that promote wellness for employees who need them – so many companies have started their own programs.
Women health (PCOS | Fertility)
Women now make up nearly half of Malaysia’s corporate workforce, with the highest concentrations found in high paying tech and engineering jobs. As such it is important for employers to focus on women’s issues including PCOS & fertility treatment as many companies offer these types programs today such as Pcos Treatment at Google or Apple who cover treatment costs per cycle if employees need medical care outside their network while also providing paid paternity leave so that fathers can bond wth newborn children after delivery.
Telemedicine is an innovative way to extend healthcare services without having a physical location. Tele-medical professionals in Malaysia work from home, on the road or anywhere in between while still providing quality care that meets all criteria for patient satisfaction and safety standards set by law.
More than three out of four employees in the Malaysia are at risk for workplace addiction. The adverse impact of tobacco use is so strong that employers continue to see financial and non-financial reasons, such as improved productivity or lower healthcare costs among smokers who quit through programs and incentives from insurers when they’re able to successfully kick their habit without assistance – it really pays off.
Weight management initiatives target people at increased risk due not only how much they weigh but also what’s coming off it. Obesity brings many diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. In Malaysia, one out of four employees benefits from these program.

The wellbeing of your employees ultimately affects your workplace and business performance. Following are some of the costs that a typical large company in Malaysia 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
