Your Future Wellness Dividend: How Healthy Organizations Maximize Employee Health and Safety for Sustainable Success
Managers and health and safety practitioners in Canada and many other countries face mounting pressures to find better ways to reduce employee health and safety risks and, at the same time, achieve higher levels of performance. These challenges are best addressed by viewing employee wellbeing as a strategic human capital advantage. This positive approach to workplace improvement is guided by a healthy organization vision. A healthy organization forges strong links between wellness, key human resource goals, and performance. Wellbeing is viewed as a leading indicator of employees’ capabilities and, equally critical, sustainable business success in the future. Evidence-based insights from current research support this approach and provide principles that can help employers reap a significant ‘wellness dividend’.
