More and more companies are investing in workplace wellness programs as a way to meet the challenges faced by their organisations. Research has shown that supporting the health and well being of employees has positive business outcomes such as improved employee performance and engagement.
According to the Harvard Business Review, “the average return on investment for a workplace wellness program is $3 to $5 per dollar invested”.

“Some may have the perception that investing in health and wellbeing has a relatively low yield. Statistics illustrate this is a myth. Recent case studies show an average ROI (Return On Investment) for workplace wellness programs is $3-$5 for every $1 invested.”

We offer a comprehensive approach to the concept of workplace wellness. We not only address the health and wellbeing of your employees at a physical, emotional and mental level but also look at how to enhance the environment and the culture of an organisation so it can become a healthier, happier workplace where people are engaged and can perform at their optimum.
As a long-term practitioner in a number of organisations, I had identified the need to ensure the health and wellbeing of my team especially with the strong connection between the frontline staff and the impact on customer experience.
At American Express we engaged with Wellness First International to deliver to our leadership team and our frontline staff a fundamental understanding of their holistic program.
The business was able to deliver a 10% reduction in sick leave and a 14% reduction in turnover. In addition, the NPS (Net Promoter Score) improved by some 34 basis points due to the ‘right people being in the right place at the right time, in a great frame of mind’.
I would recommend Wellness First International for their ability to translate their program inclusive of understanding the business drivers and as a retention tool and investment in your business”.
On joining BT Life Insurance I decided to run the ‘wellness first’ program across all operation teams with a strong focus on the contact centre staff given their high sick leave and reduced productivity. There were a number of reasons why we opted to run this particular course, including undertaking training for staff that was not necessarily work related, to give the staff the opportunity to experience new ways of thinking, reduce sick leave within the area as well as reduce costs by increasing productivity.
The feedback from all the attendees was extremely positive with staff adopting many of the initiatives.
As a result of the program we were able to track sick leave reduction from an average of 10.5 days per annum to 7.1 to 7.6 days per annum, and in line with the productivity target we achieved an increase in output of 13 per cent.
I highly recommend this program for all staff at all levels.”
The Customer Contact Centre (CCC) values the health and wellbeing of its staff and as such, chose to invest in the Wellness First program.
The return of investment has been tangible from day 1. Being much more health conscious, we found CCC Team Members have developed healthy habits both on a personal and professional level which has contributed to a marked improvement in our attendance and engagement.”
