  • Lifestyle practices, occupational health, and safety are given high importance by companies

Corporate Wellness Drivers and Constraints  

  • Increase in work-related health issues, stress, absenteeism, and government regulations are driving the growth of employee wellness programs. Employers also use this as a tool to retain and attract talent, improve employee engagement, productivity, and to maintain work ability


Occupational health and safety

  • Costs related to work-related stress is increasing and absenteeism is increasing. Traditionally, health and wellness have been focused on minimizing the risk of physical hazards in a workplace, but for the past few years, this has been changing to incorporate broader psychosocial considerations, health plans, and employee assessment and assistance programs

  • Health education, health screenings, and disease management have helped reduce absenteeism and employee turnover as well as increase productivity and efficiency
  • Brand image includes talent attraction, retention, and ideas about broader corporate social responsibility

  • The Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act, Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011
  • Work Health and Safety Regulation 2017 (NSW) – There are different state specific laws that concentrate and insist on health and well being of people. The government also provides few subsidies to employers for having corporate wellness programs


Involvement of employees

  • Employers find it difficult to involve all of their employees in wellness and assistance program participation. In Australia, the number of employees having access to EAP program is increasing, but the utilization rate is found to be around 5 percent
  • Rewards and incentive systems are growing, so as to increase the participation of employees

Lack of support from management as well as budget and resource constraints
