Are you a desirable Canadian employer? Business professionals agree that employee retention is one of the ways that companies become more profitable and successful over time. Keeping employees engaged is good for the bottom line.
So what are you doing to keep your employees engaged?
If your organization has the intention of retaining its’ employees for the duration of their careers in hope of benefitting from their experience, dedication and loyalty to the organization, what are you doing to ensure that they remain effective workers as they get older?
“Workdays missed because of illness or disability tended to rise with age, from an average of 5.2 days for youth (15 to 19) to 11.1 for full-time employees aged 55 to 64.”

Upon review of Canada’s top employers, the majority of these employers offered their employees some or many additional wellness services at work throughout the year which went above and beyond their EAP services and offered tangible on-site services they could learn from and participate in.
It is no coincidence that most of these top 100 employers are among Canada’s most profitable companies either. If your company is already on this list, or wants to be known as a desirable company to work for… OR you just want to take good care of the employees who dedicate themselves to your bottom line; GoodLife Wellness Services invites you to participate in Canada’s Healthy Workplace Month in October by offering your employees something extra to bring wellness into the workplace.
Consider offering a series of group exercise classes, on-site massage therapy, nutritional workshops or 1:1 counselling.
