Over the past few years, many businesses have started to pay attention to workplace well-being.
Working in an office can be hazardous to our health. Hunching over computers leads to sore shoulders and necks. And sitting down all day can give us back and hip aches.
While massage may bring some direct benefits to staff wellness, there are other benefits of massage in the workplace that can benefit your business directly.
Benefit of onsite massage to your business
Attracting the right employees
Being able to attract the right people to your business is more than just offering the right remuneration. More and more people are looking at the benefits that come along with the role. Benefits that help support their well-being and work-life balance are very attractive.
Offering onsite massage as part of well-being and benefits packages may help businesses attract the right staff to help the organisation grow and develop.
Staff retention is important to any growing business. When staff leave, it doesn’t just incur costs to advertise and train new staff, but organisational knowledge and relationships are lost.
Additional benefits that show employees that they’re valued can help retain staff. And that’s where onsite massages come in. Offering weekly, fortnightly, or monthly workplace massages to your employees is one way you can show them that they’re valued. Helping you retain employees and reduce staff turnover.
Helping productivity and performance
You may think that staff taking 15 minutes out of work to have an onsite massage is 15 minutes when they could be productively working.
Studies have found that massage during work hours can actually improve performance.
During a massage, blood flow throughout the body is stimulated, boosting brain function, alertness and attention to detail.
A workplace massage of between 10 and 40 minutes can help
- Reduce fatigue
- Increase productivity
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Increase contentment
Give your staff something special to look forward to, and see the benefits it has in your organisation.
With less stress on our bodies, massage can also play a part in reducing absenteeism.
Over the years, massage has become a valuable way we can show ourselves some self-care. It’s more than just soothing away aches and pains. Various studies have shown massage to have extensive benefits on our well-being.
- Reduce tension
- Increase joint mobility
- Increase blood circulation
- Support the immune system
- Relieves muscle soreness
- Increases flexibility and range of movement
- Improve mood, sleep and energy levels
