Corporate Wellness Week takes place from the 6th – 10th of July and highlights the importance of a healthy work environment. The 21st-century work environment has placed a spotlight on advanced digital communications and innovations that have been the cause of increased high-pressurized work environments.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) shares, “A healthy workplace is one in which workers and managers collaborate to use a continual improvement process to protect and promote the health, safety and well-being of all workers and the sustainability of the workplace.”
Research conducted by the World Health Organisation reflects that the average person spends a third of their adult life in the workplace. Negative outcomes such as decreased productivity, higher absenteeism, and poorer work ethic will be the result of an unhealthy work environment.
