What is an Employee Wellness Program?
Employee wellness programs have been found to be one of the most cost-effective ways for companies in Trinidad and Tobago, as well as worldwide. In fact over 70% of employees across all industries suffer from work stress or a chronic health condition which costs their employers 35%. However this increases with every passing year due to increased pressure on people who are forced into long hours at times when they’re not feeling up for it – especially since some studies show that even small changes can make an impact. An easy way you could reduce these losses would by introducing employee wellbeing initiatives like incentives (based around healthy lifestyles) and awareness campaigns aimed specifically towards younger generations about how your business supports them growing Sociallly and mentally.
