Employee Wellbeing Research 2017: EAPs, gym membership & health screenings top wellbeing initiatives
EAPs, gym membership and health screenings remain the top wellbeing initiatives, according to the latest report on wellbeing.
‘Employee Wellbeing Research 2017: The evolution of workplace wellbeing in the UK’ from Reward & Employee Benefits Association (REBA) in association with Punter Southall Health & Protection, shows that the three benefits retain the same positions as they did last year, with 88.5% of respondents offering an EAP, 77.6% offering free or discounted gym membership and 62.9% offering health screenings.
“The fact that EAPs top the chart again comes as no surprise really,” says Debi O’Donovan, director at the Reward & Employee Benefits Association.
“They are relatively cheap and sometimes even come as an added perk so companies really don’t have an excuse not to offer them. The continued popularity of health screenings and discounted or free gym membership also shows how important businesses are taking the health of their staff.”
