There are many reasons companies today are investing into corporate wellness programs. In the past, we had more separation between our work and home lives. As we are coming to realize health is an inseparable part of ourselves, companies are finding ways to help keep employees as healthy as possible.
Most see a high return on investment from helping their employees stay healthy. Healthy employees are less stressed, happier and get sick less frequently, meaning more productivity for an organization. Another benefit to starting a corporate wellness program is higher corporate morale.
What Is Corporate Morale?
Corporate morale is the attitude someone has towards their workplace, and ideally, that would be a positive one. It involves the outlook one has on their career as well confidence in the direction the company is going. Employees also need to feel satisfaction with their work on a day-to-day basis.
Employees who are happy with their jobs and work environments are likely to be more invested in the work they produce. In order to foster high corporate morale, employees need to feel as they are a significant resource for their company or organization, and not someone who is so easily replaced.

Better Health Increases Productivity and Morale
We all know what absenteeism is, but have you heard of presenteeism? It is a term that can be used to describe an employee who is present at work, but has lower than usual productivity. One of the main reasons for presenteeism is poor health. By investing into employees’ health, companies can boost productivity by reducing both absenteeism and presenteeism.
Healthier employees are happier, less stressed and more motivated at work. When someone is in a good mood, they are able to work more efficiently and have fewer mistakes and accidents occur. Those with client-facing roles would have an easier time being friendly and helpful while dealing with customers.
To effectively boost employee morale, it is vital to have as many people participate in your wellness events. That means finding activities that are a good fit with the existing corporate culture, and also encouraging employees to participate. For example, chair massage is often a popular event for many companies we work with, because it feels good and has many health benefits. It is a service that innately helps someone feel relaxed and feel like they are getting a break from the workday.
