Why your employees are more likely to stay loyal when you have a workplace fitness plan

Why your employees are more likely to stay loyal when you have a workplace fitness plan

The 2018 Global Talent Trends survey found that half of employees would like their employers to put a greater focus on wellbeing. That figure seems almost certain to have increased due to the Coronavirus pandemic, as increasing numbers of people take both physical and mental health more seriously. Having wellbeing programmes operating in the workplace benefits everyone and helps create a more positive environment, leading to improved retention levels and a higher degree of loyalty from employees.

A win-win situation

When companies invest in wellbeing and health, employees feel more valued. Nobody wants to be treated like a robot, after all, and feeling that their employer cares and takes a genuine interest in them is rewarding. If an employee feels cared-for as an individual, it builds a level of trust and loyalty towards their company.

One of the easiest things an employer can do is set up a workplace fitness programme, allowing their team time out to exercise on-site. Exercise has been proven to boost both mood and concentration levels, so the employer benefits as much as the employee through improved productivity. That makes workplace fitness a win-win for all.

Could it benefit your organisation?

No matter what sector or industry you work in, workplace fitness programmes can make a big difference. When your team feels well looked after, empowered and motivated, they enjoy their time at work more and are more likely to stay in their jobs. Ultimately, a fitness programme can show that an employer is caring and responsible, something employees appreciate and which instils a sense of loyalty.
