Recruit Top Talent by Stepping Up Your Wellness Game

Wellness programs have a huge impact — not only on your employees’ well-being but also on your company’s success. According to a 2014 Virgin Pulse report, “Beyond Participation: How to Sustain Healthy Changes in Employee Behaviour,” 70% of employees say wellness programs have a positive impact on work culture. So it should come as no surprise that wellness plays a key role in attracting talent. In fact, the same report revealed that 87% of employees take health and wellness offerings into consideration during their job hunt.

Wellness programs are no longer a perk but an expectation in the workplace. The 2013 Sun Life– Buffett National Wellness Survey found that 90% of Canadian employers offer some sort of wellness incentive. A company not offering any wellness initiatives may be seen as a “black sheep” for job seekers. But even if your company is offering wellness, how do you compete with the other 90% of wellness aware companies out there who are competing for the same talent?
