Active Lifestyle corporate membership

A healthy workforce is a happy workforce!

The health and wellbeing of employees is crucial to the success of any business. Employees are at their most productive and creative when their work environment supports them.

Through introduction of a successful health and wellbeing programme absenteeism can significantly reduce, along with staff turnover. This in turn leads to increased skill retention and a reduction in recruitment and training costs.

Where the physical and mental wellbeing of employees is protected and improved, staff morale also gets better and they feel more engaged with their workplace. All these things together can significantly increase productivity.

The benefits to your business

Research shows that an active, healthy workforce generally enjoys:

  • improved performance and greater productivity;
  • improved morale and social interaction;
  • assistance in alleviating stress in the workplace;
  • reduced absenteeism;
  • reduced staff turnover;
  • reduced risk of diseases associated with sedentary lifestyles such as coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease.
