If you are noticing a decline in productivity in the workplace, high rates of absenteeism, and low employee morale, it may be time to rejuvenate your company by incorporating fitness. By providing a workplace fitness centre your team can keep up with their healthy lifestyle without having to invest in a gym membership and can conveniently add fitness to their busy schedule.
Here are some ways that adding an onsite fitness centre at your workplace could help you attract and retain employees.
1. A Wellness Philosophy
By encouraging work-life balance and promoting a wellness philosophy could help you retain employees’ for the long term because they feel like their employer cares about them.
2. Improving Work-Life Balance
Creating a fitness centre at your workplace might encourage employees to take part in some work-life balance. Employees who work long hours or overtime will appreciate an opportunity to get their workout done (at the office) while taking a break during the day.
Mental health benefits of regular exercise enhance productivity; concentration; memory; and creativity. Exercise can also boost the mood which will have a direct effect on their workplace performance.
4. Improves Employee Morale
Workers who feel like their employers care about their health will be more cooperative, more productive, and generally feel happier. This will improve their overall morale towards your business.
It has been proven that for every $1 invested in worksite wellness programs, companies experienced a return of $6 in reduced absenteeism. Encouraging employees to work out regularly at the workplace fitness centre, and take part in a healthy lifestyle, should result in reduced absenteeism.
6. Manage Stress
Stressed employees usually require the need to take time off from work, or they may compromise their ability to perform their job. Exercise can improve mental health by helping the person release stress effectively. Being sedentary makes the body less efficient in responding to stress, so you want to have your employees be physically active. Your staff, having access to a workplace fitness centre, will be a valuable asset that should reduce the stress of your employees.
