The Value of Healthy People (Wellbeing).
As the ‘war for talent’ continues to brew, CEOs’ and their company’s highest priorities are to attract the best talent possible. The future seems to be filled with organizations that have come to realize the need to invest more in their people; being their biggest and most valuable asset. Innovation depends on the individuals that bring it forward, and a company can only become as good as the talent behind it can attract and retain. A way in which enterprises are already attempting to draw in the best employees is with an offer of modern workspaces and top-tier amenities.
While it’s not always immediately apparent, one of the most cost-effective solutions for this goal is creating a healthy work environment. We should all know by now that health is an important factor in optimizing performance at work. This is starting to be a higher priority in workplace design with ideas such as biophilic design, sit-stand desks, food & nourishment, wellness programs, increased physical movement, and HR leadership taking a more active role in workplace design.
A happy, healthy and comfortable work environment is important for your staff – and it can easily be achieved without spending a fortune. A smart design and a small amount of the right effort can boost productivity and morale while acknowledging the time spent in an office.
