Performance and Productivity

“66% of employees report that they have difficulty focusing on tasks at work because of stress. Stress has been called the “health epidemic of the 21st century” by the World Health Organization and is estimated to cost American businesses up to $300 billion a year. “ 2
60% of workers spend their entire workday seated, and 56% are classified as “physically inactive.” 3
Fatigue, stress, pain and discomfort are major factors that lead to a lack of motivation, diminished focus and increased errors.
When we are physically, mentally and emotionally healthy we perform at increase levels of efficiency. We are more adaptable, we make fewer mistakes, are less susceptible to sickness and can maintain focus and concentration for longer periods of time without succumbing to fatigue. We are happier and friendlier 4, which creates a more supportive community and work environment.
An average ROI for an employee wellness program is $3.40 for every $1 spent, according to Canadian consulting firm, WorkingWell.
Wellness for Executives
Wellness solutions are not only for employees. Many of the most successful executives and CEOs understand the importance of health and mindfulness 5, and studies demonstrate that the mindfulness of leaders has a positive influence on employee well-being and performance. 6

What motivates people to give their best?
Think of a family that truly cares for each other. There is the sense that each family member is deeply invested in each and every other family member. There is a deep connection. It is this deep connection that facilitates each member’s willingness to whole heatedly support the goals and dreams of the other members. They are emotionally invested in the success of all others.
This does not mean there will never be disagreements or heated discussions, but when people are more connected and in a healthier state of mind there is more openness and willingness to find the best result, as opposed to stubbornness and resistance.
A workplace with connection like this not only elevates each individual, but creates a sense of workplace community, and like a family there is deep connection and commitment to everyone’s success. Individual success is not separate from the family, community or business success.
Remember that 87% of employers being disengaged at work?
Yes, I am suggesting that your business or company can be a community with deep connection. The results being a place where people enjoy coming to work, morale is high, there is a feeling of safety, warmth and support, in turn facilitating greater focus and productivity.
