With most business’ labor represents a large percentage of operating costs, minimizing absenteeism is critical for profitability and continued success. It is also important to get the most productivity for each labor dollar spent so you can avoid having more employees than necessary. The higher the stress level, the lower the productivity and the higher the potential for long-term health effects. One of the ways to combat workplace stress and anxiety is by encouraging your staff to get a chair massage regularly. Even better is if you offer to cover some or all of the cost.
If your staff spends a great deal of time doing desk work, this can result in lots of tension in their upper back, as well as wrist and arm strain. A chair massage can work out the kinks and release the tension, preventing inevitable tension headaches and other potential health dangers. A chair massage also promotes blood circulation, boosts the immune system, and lowers blood pressure – all situations that you want if your objective is to keep your staff healthy and productive.
In addition to the physical benefits of a chair massage, you should consider the mental wellness benefits. Your staff’s morale is also important to production and reducing employee turnover. Showing your staff that you care about their stress, anxiety levels, and overall health by setting up a chair massage program can go a long way to promoting a great working environment.
