Workplace Programs

work life balanceWould you like to be an employer of choice? An employer who invests in the wellbeing of employees because it pays for itself many times over, in both morale and improved productivity?

Australian workplace studies show alarming statistics:

  • Employees with poor health behaviours have up to nine times more annual sick days than healthy individuals (18 days, compared to 2 days per year).
  • Employee morale and stress in the workforce contribute significantly to absenteeism and sick leave, with absenteeism costings Australian businesses $7 billion annually.
  • A worker’s health status impacts upon their productivity, with presenteeism (i.e. at work but ineffective) costs Australian businesses four times more – $26 billion annually.
  • 53% of Australian workers surveyed felt overwhelmed with stress and pressure a significant proportion of the time.
  • More than half of workers surveyed did not get enough sleep.
  • Nearly a quarter of full-time employees believe that the work-life balance had deteriorated in the last two years.
  • 61% of public sector employees and 41% of private sector employees said workload/intensity had increased in the last two years.
