San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2014
Stress in the workplace is a serious issue and negatively affects employees’ health, which causes a decrease in productivity and ultimately can affect the company’s bottom line. Massage Envy Spa®, a pioneer and national leader in professional, convenient and affordable massage and facial services, has designed a Corporate Wellness Program to help alleviate stress among employees and reduce company health costs.
Studies have shown that approximately 40 percent of turnover in the workplace is stress related, and can account for an estimated annual loss of $147,720. In addition, 50 percent of absenteeism and pre-absenteeism cases are related to stress, accounting for an annual loss of $40,500 and $162,000 per company respectively. These are significant percentages for companies of any size, especially for a small to medium size business. Losing multiple employees over a period of time can have a detrimental effect on the way a business operates.
Adopting wellness programs, such as integrating massage therapy, can help relieve stress as well as attract and retain quality employees by showing that the company is taking the necessary steps to improve their well-being. A therapeutic massage helps to improve circulation, leaving people feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the day. Providing employees a means to decrease work-related stress can improve their overall health, translating into benefits for companies that include less absenteeism, increased productivity and a decrease in health insurance claims (and therefore future ratings on insurance premiums.)
Massage Envy Spa® San Diego understands the importance of promoting wellness through stress relief and has a simple solution that can save a company a lot of time and money. It offers Corporate Group membership rates that make it easy to get employees started on a wellness program.
