There was this article in the Financial Post yesterday that showed that for every dollar a
company invests in it’s employees health, they get $1.62 back in productivity.
I used to work with a small company where I instituted A&W day. Everyone loved A&W day! They would all make it into the office for lunch, and we would sit around, eat onion rings, drink root beer and chat. At the end of lunch, everyone was in a good mood and off we would set back to work, having reconnected in a meaningful way with our fellow employees.
This article is talking about some higher levels of employee wellness, but this is a very interesting market that is opening up. If covid has taught us anything, it’s that the health of employees should be on every business owner’s mind
