Study Links Well-Being To Better Job Performance

Leave a comment


The growing trend of employee wellness programs is now being supported by a study.  Healthways claims that their new study is the first to reliably link well-being with employee performance outcomes, showing that well-being can help improve job performance.  The study proved that those with what they called “low well-being” are seven times more likely to miss work and 47 times more likely to show up while feeling ill.

The lead researcher, Dr. Yuyan Shi of the center for health research at Healthways said, “The study is relevant to any entity concerned about business outcomes, especially employers, health plans and health systems.  In addition to that she also stated that, “it is directly relevant to human resources and benefits managers who are focused on improving employees’ health and productivity.”
