Why does your company need regular Reflexology?
Work-related stress is one of the biggest health and safety challenges faced in Europe, representing a huge cost in terms of human distress and economic performance.
Stress effects almost every aspect of a persons wellbeing and for a company can cause its workforce to have:
- Reduced performance in physical tasks
- Tiredness and irritability
- Negative effect on decision making, planning and creativity
- Lowered immune system which in turn leads to the development of physical illness and increased absenteeism.
In 2012 Ipsos MORI conducted job-related stress research for the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) and concluded that:
Eight in ten of the working population across Europe think that the number of people suffering from job-related stress over the next five years will increase (80 per cent), with as many as 52 per cent expecting this to ‘increase a lot’.”
But stress is only one aspect of a company’s workforce absenteeism. When considering the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reports on days lost each year through absenteeism, the latest report from 2015 shows that:
In 2014/15, 23.3 million days were lost due to work-related ill health.
On average, each person suffering took around 25 days off work per year, 19 days for ill health cases and 6.7 for injuries.
Stress, depression or anxiety and musculoskeletal disorders accounted for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health, 9.9 and 9.5 million days respectively.
The average days lost per case for stress, depression or anxiety (23 days) was higher than for musculoskeletal disorders (17 days)”.
How can we combat this upward trend?
A growing number of businesses are turning towards in-house complementary treatments for their workforce to combat stress related illness.
By providing their employees the opportunity to receive regular reflexology treatments whilst at work they are showing commitment to health and wellbeing within their workforce. Reflexology not only reduces stress and tension itself, it also speeds recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic illnesses and helps to maintain good health.
