Employees become much more motivated and productive when they know that their employer cares about their total quality of life, which goes beyond traditional wellness and includes physical, emotional, financial and social health.
Every year the APA’s Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award highlights organizations that are putting more emphasis on the bigger picture of employee well-being. According to statistics from the APA, companies that meet the criterion of a “psychologically healthy workplace” benefit from improved work quality and productivity, lower absenteeism, presenteeism, less turnover, and better customer service ratings. In fact, the four employers who received the award this year, had an average turnover rate of 6% in 2012, compared to the national average of 38% as estimated by the U.S. Department of Labor.
