Any business owner can attest to the fact that happier, healthier employees lead to greater productivity and efficiency in the workplace. Employees tend to take fewer mental health, personal, and sick days when they are experiencing optimal wellness at work. In fact, investing in your employees’ physical and mental health can result in less churn, more productive workers, and an overall more efficient workplace, which can in turn lead to more revenue for your business. Read on to learn more about the importance of wellbeing in the workplace, and see how Vita Wellness can help through our corporate massage programs.
- Psychological Stress and Productivity in the Workplace
If you’ve ever been in a psychologically or physically stressful situation, then you know that it can be difficult to perform at your peak effectiveness. When workers are physically and mentally overwhelmed they are far less productive. Research even shows that employees who feel stressed at work have higher risks of cancer and other chronic diseases.
By giving your employees a way to relax through massage, you'll be benefiting both their performance and their personal wellbeing.
- Psychological Stress and Employee Retention
A study conducted between 2007 and 2008 found that 37% of former employees reported stress at work as one of their main reasons for leaving a previous job. Lower rates of employee retention as a result of psychological stress in the workplace can lead to financial loss for companies because of the need to constantly retrain new workers. By keeping your top employee’s happy thought workplace wellness programs, you can reduce the headache of the hiring process while helping to retain your most important talent.
- Health Benefits of Professional Massage and Corporate Massage Programs
Research shows that massage therapy is a very effective method of reducing the perception and effects of psychological stress. Massage has been shown to result in significant decreases in stress by manipulating the body’s muscles and soft tissues in order to promote relaxation. Research shows that when people receive massages, the level of cortisol, a hormone in the body that is elevated in stressful situations, decreases.
- Additional benefits of massage include:
· Reduction in physical pain
· Improvement in mood disorders such as anxiety and depression
· Improvement in sleep quality
· Enhanced immune system function
· Reduction in aggressive behaviors
