Why Invest in Your Staff?
Before Covid, the World Health Organisation was quoted saying “Stress is the epidemic of the 21st Century”. With more people working from home due to the Pandemic it is even more important to look after each other and be aware of the impact of stress on the body and mind.
In a world that is driven by technology it isn’t surprising that stress and mental health related issues are increasing. People are working harder and longer hours in a technology driven world. The technology can shut down, be re-booted and upgraded but as a business owner the most important asset within your business is your staff. Your staff need to be empowered, encouraged and provided with the tools to allow them to have a work, life balance.
By investing in your staff’s health and wellness within the workplace you are encouraging them to take ownership of their own wellbeing. Empowered and healthy staff are more likely to be more productive, engaged and motivated and less likely to be absent from work.
Why Yoga In The Workplace?
The National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE) has released new guidelines to encourage employers to help their staff become more active and fight obesity. Yoga has been listed as a key tool to improve productivity within the workplace (https://www.nice.org.uk/news/article/employers-encouraged-to-help-their-staff-become-active-in-fight-against-obesity). Professor Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive and director of health and social care at NICE, said: “If the United Kingdom’s 5.7 million small and medium sized businesses encouraged their workforce to be more active, they are more likely to reap the benefits of having engaged employees who are more productive and are less likely to take time off sick.”
Yoga can help your staff breath more deeply which increases the oxygen in the blood and improves clarity of thought.
