What is the True Cost of a Wellbeing Plan?

On this episode I’m talking about reasons why putting wellbeing at the heart of your business has a massive impact on business success and bottom line.

Is a wellbeing plan essential yet in your organisation or still a nice to do?

The episode is packed full of the info and key things I’m sharing are:

  • How you can build a business case to persuade leaders
  • The stats and info that will support your case (so grab a pen)
  • The key information to enable you to measure outcomes, create stats and track the ROI.
  • Which are the most vulnerable demographics that you can watch out for
  • Compelling reasons that help you assess the true cost of a wellbeing plan.

In this episode I’m taking a look at costs associated in an organisation with the wellbeing plan or costs associated with not having one!  In essence – it’s the price you might pay if you choose not to invest.

Whether you’re building a business case or trying to persuade board members, business leaders and your c suite, then grab a pen.  This episode is for you.

I have these conversations all the time with HR and Wellbeing leads so listen in where I give a real life example of the way to change thinking and direction to present information in a way that hits the spot with your leaders.

Different reasons why you might want to encourage your leaders to invest in a wellbeing plan.

These range from:

Improving company brand and enhancing PR 

Impacting direct and indirect business costs such as healthcare, EAPs, absences and attrition.

Deloitte 2020 say 62% of managers feel obliged to put work needs ahead of staff wellbeing

The cost to UK Businesses every year according to Deloitte report in 2020 is:

£8.6 billon in Staff Turnover Costs

£6.8billion in Absence costs

£29.3 billon on presenteeism costs

25% of employees fear the consequences of opening up and talking about their Mental health and wellbeing issues…..  I’ve seen this with clients and share an example on the podcast.

I also share other ways that ignoring wellbeing can be costly to your business and can guard against any employment and tribunal claims too.
