Health And Wellness Programs Create Better Employees Who Work Harder

For health and economic reasons, investing in employee health makes sound business sense. Workplace wellness initiatives deliver value on two fronts: they can decrease costs and improve productivity, and also improve health for all, supporting behavioural change in individuals, families and communities. 

Pioneering research by Laura Punnett of the University of Massachusetts has suggested that a host of factors is related to musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace—ranging far beyond safety-oriented measures such as the mechanics of lifting, posture, etc, and encompassing such factors as socioeconomic status and lifestyle behaviors. When these multivariate factors are addressed together, the potential for overall health gains in employees is increased.

For example, the health and safety of its workforce has always been important to Rio Tinto. Wellness is seen as an extension of health and safety because the company recognises that a healthy workforce is a safer workforce. As such, Rio Tinto’s corporate wellness program complements its occupational health and safety measures. The program focuses on screening, assessing and managing a range of health risks and illnesses facing many of its employees, such as sedentary lifestyles, poor diet, stress,smoking, obesity and mental health.

 Structured physical activity is highly effective in preventing and/or treating most of the major diseases of modern society including diabetes, heart disease, depression and cancer. Yet despite this evidence, almost 70% of Australian adults are not active enough to achieve the preventative health benefits. Sixty-five percent of the Australian population aged over 15 years are in the workforce, with 68.5% of the workforce classified as sedentary or engaging in low level activity.

Related to this, the cost of absenteeism in Australia is estimated at $7 billion each year. Recent research has shown that workplace health programs resulted in, on average, a 25.3% decrease in sick leave absenteeism, 40.7% decrease in workers compensation costs, and $5.81 of savings for every $1 invested in employee wellbeing.1 Further research has shown that productivity loss due to physical inactivity equates to 1.8 working days per worker per year.

Stretching & Mobilisation Class

These group classes are an introduction to reinventing yourself and reversing the damaging effects that sitting has had on your health. Sports science research has shown us that taking the time to stretch and strengthen the vulnerable areas of your body (those that are affected by sitting) can not only eliminate the risk of injury, but it can and will IMPROVE performance too.

Core Stability Class

Good posture is more than just sitting up straight when planted all day in front of the computer. Why not give your employees an opportunity to understand how their body posture affects their overall health and learn how to make changes to improve their day? This workshop was created to educate your staff on how to monitor their own posture during working hours. We will provide them with enough tools to correct their posture and use their core properly to stabilise the body and prevent injuries from occurring.

Stretch & Strengthen Class

What does this include? 

  • Low impact yoga based exercises designed specifically for your workplace to help alleviate tension from your neck, back and shoulders due to long hours of sitting at the desk
  • Postures to strengthen your core and all body muscles so you can go back to sitting more comfortably
  • Movements to increase flexibility in your whole body, particularly areas related to the lower back and shoulders
  • Breathing and relaxation techniques to help deal with stress
  • Learning how to deeply relax and rejuvenate the body and mind, even help with a better night’s sleep

Remember, just because you’re not carrying an injury now doesn’t mean that one isn’t just around the corner!

Corporate Massage 

““Nobody calls in sick on massage day!””

Thank your staff or reward them for their hard work – why not treat them to a professional seated massage and even better, a private massage! Corporate Massage is typically a 15 minute treatment given to employees at the workplace. Most commonly treatments are focused on the head, neck, shoulders and upper back but our therapists can tailor treatments to your needs. 

Corporate Massage therapy can be performed at the convenience of the workplace either at the worker’s desk or in a suitable room or worksite. Employees remain fully clothed and typically no oils or lotions are used. Private treatments can be organised for longer treatments.

Happy staff = hard working staff. In no time you will see the results for yourself, both in the attitude of everyone in the office and in the productivity levels of your staff and company. Massage times can be 15, 20 or 30 minutes depending on how many staff you have.

Stretch Workshops

In many work environments it is almost impossible to eliminate all hazards and risks and therefore we have developed a stretch or strengthening program to better equip your workers with both the knowledge and practical skills to be able to implement simple stretching and strengthening techniques to help workers deal with tension associated with static, awkward or repetitive work tasks that can be performed for long durations.

Reviews

We connected with Wade from CWH again to assist in this transition.

They assisted our team in transitioning to working from home in three ways: a group webinar education session, followed by workers completing a self-assessment form and then undertaking 1:1 consultations to deliver a tailored approach.

As a business we have made the transition smoother to ensure our workers are comfortable, and set up to perform their tasks safely at home.

The inner-city business for whom I work as Office Administrator recently engaged CWHA to deliver “Sit Safe” training seminars and conduct ergonomic assessments for all our staff. It was a very worthwhile undertaking. The information imparted in the seminars was interesting and applicable. The individual desk checks were thorough and valuable, as was the subsequent comprehensive report.

We recently had Wade out at our workplace to deliver Ergonomic Assessment training. Wade has a wealth of knowledge that he willingly shares with participants. His easy going presentation style ensures the course is delivered in an interesting and practical format that is beneficial to everyone.  I have no hesitation in recommending Wade for your future training needs.
