SMADAR CORPORATE WELLBEING PROGRAMME

 Executive Summary

Health and wellbeing are fast becoming the key issues for any business’s productivity.  The individual’s health and wellbeing is made up of physical, mental and social wellbeing, all of which are already impacting a company’s profitability.  Amongst those, stress is the biggest health issue and results in ill health in all areas – social, mental and physical.

Maximum productivity and profitability require investment, not just into standard business practices but also in a company’s employees.  This will increase retention, reduce absenteeism and attract the very best recruits in the marketplace, aiding the longevity and success of any business.

We have launched a programme that helps companies assist their employees in all areas of health and wellbeing to ensure they live the healthiest and most productive lives in order that they get the very best out of their workforce, which in turn helps them to be market leaders in their field.

The medical community’s biggest challenge is dealing with lifestyle related diseases as achieving lifestyle changes is extremely hard for doctors.  These difficulties present a fundamental shift in the medical community within the last 10 – 20 years and our current, medical model is struggling to manage those diseases or even prevent them occurring.

Making those lifestyle adjustments require pro-active changes in behaviours and habits.  These take time and support as it people find them very difficult to maintain over time. 

Understanding the complexities of these health issues and the impact on a company were the reason for us to put together this uniquely comprehensive programme.  It raises awareness, educates on key issues and gives employees a detailed step-by-step guide how to implement changes and supports them until those changes are established habits.

Key Facts

  • An estimated 30.7 million working days were lost due to sickness or non-fatal injury in the UK workplace for the period 2017/2018.
  • Stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 15.4 million of those days lost.
  • On average, each person suffering took around 25.8 days off work for stress, depression or anxiety reasons.
  • A weakened immune system increases our vulnerability, both physically and mentally. Therefore conversely, focusing on strengthening immune health makes each person more resilient and helps them cope better with stress and anxiety.
  • The health and wellbeing of employees is directly linked to their performance and, as such, their productivity.
  • Businesses are becoming more aware of the need to engage with their employees around health issues, including physical, mental and social wellbeing.
  • In an increasingly competitive employment market it is important for businesses to explore ways of retaining their employees and attracting the best new talent in the market place.
  • Changes to lifestyle are multi-causal and as such, require a multi-faceted and integrative approach that combines exercise, diet & nutrition, mindset and sleep.

How it Works

Our programme offers education, advice and bespoke practical solutions to our customers, which will aid the ongoing wellbeing of staff, recognising the early symptoms of potential problems and, where necessary, giving the ongoing support required in a timely fashion.
