Did you know that there is a 2 percent decrease in productivity for every health risk gained by every employee?
There is a clear correlation between the health of the workforce and productivity, with healthy workers being more productive, having higher engagement levels and taking less sick days compared to unhealthy colleagues. We spend at least one-third of our day at work, and day to day our engagement and productivity levels can vary- some days we can be really productive, and others not so much. Research shows that the most common health risks have negatively impacted on work performance, which include:
- High blood pressure or high blood glucose levels
- Physical inactivity
- Stress and depression.
Health by Design run several programs to increase productivity and mental clarity in your workplace, focusing on a total population based approach to improve understanding of health, physical capacity and mental health.
Brain chemistry: Our brain chemicals play an important role in regulating how our brain functions. Balanced brain chemistry can lead to improved clarity of thought, concentration, memory and efficiency- all important for productivity in the workplace. An imbalance in brain chemistry can have detrimental effects, leading to stress and can potentially lead to depression and anxiety. We focus on brain techniques and how our lifestyle choices can influence our brain chemistry, in turn improving both individual and team performance.
High performance pathways: Joining the dots between physical, emotional and mental health. This program allows participants to be education and engages in all three facets of health and focuses on a targeted plan for improving health and performance in these areas.
We can offer your workplace a tailored health program based off the goals and objectives you want to achieve. This is achieved through workshops, interactive displays and health assessments to make your workplace a healthy one.
