Ergonomics and human factors form a social science that focuses on maximising understanding of the behaviour of people, their interactions with one another and their environment with the aim of optimising human performance.
As an Ergonomics consultancy we are ideally placed to create wellbeing services that truly reflect your employees’ needs and fit with the culture of your company. We will create clarity where there is confusion by advising on the best wellbeing services that are proven to get to the heart of the issue and produce a measurable ROI. We believe that everything is interconnected, with stress affecting back pain, mental and general health and vice versa.
Indeed, it is far cheaper to be proactive than reactive and will be far more effective in reducing sickness, presenteeism and absenteeism.
Mental health and musculoskeletal disorders (MSKs) are the top cause of sick leave in the UK. Of the 131.2m working days lost in the UK to all types of sickness in 2017, around 28.2m of these were for MSKs, some 15m were for mental-health reasons. That represents a cost of £2,605 per UK employeee.
With doctors’ surgeries and other NHS service waiting times longer than ever, it is more and more difficult to get recovery advice, let alone proactive advice on health and wellbeing. As a result, there’s a potential impact on employees’ health and wellbeing and their ability to perform at their best at work. Wellbeing in the workplace reflects the modern-day need to bring in-house wellbeing services straight to the employee’s desk.
So, address these and you will not only improve productivity levels, but you will also attract top talent when recruiting. Did you know that employees think free health and wellbeing services are more important for an employer to offer, ahead of subsidised or free food and drink at work?
