Why Your Office Health and Wellness Programs Fail
Office health and wellness programs matter. Every dollar spent on workplace wellness programs reduces health care costs for employers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Health-related absenteeism also costs the economy $84 billion in lost productivity every year.
So, why doesn’t every employer have an awesome health and wellness program? And why do so many health and wellness programs fail to deliver any appreciable
return on investment.
Reason No. 1: A Lack of Resources
Adis M Haber, CEO of Premier Mobile Spa, thinks she knows why. “I think most employers believe that [health and wellness programs are important] in principle, but in reality, there’s not a lot of resources given to them,” she says. “The reason for that is because there are things that are more pressing, such as profit or productivity. We know that employers don’t use wellness programs because they don’t see direct ROI from them.”
Time and time again, however, successful health and wellness programs do show ROI. Adis says that most employers don’t see the ROI because it’s often not immediate. For example, employers may not realize their gains in productivity are coming from lowered absenteeism rates. They may attribute the gains to other initiatives,
new processes, or talented employees.
Reason No. 2: Health and Wellness Doesn’t Fit Into Employees’ Schedules
According to Ernesto Alvarez, business solutions specialist at Premier Mobile Spa, a lot of health and wellness programs fail because they simply aren’t practical. Many health and wellness programs encourage employees to do things like go for a run or hit the gym. These suggestions aren’t exactly tailored to employees’ lifestyles and obligations.
“We’ve noticed through our user feedback that that doesn’t really fit in with someone’s normal workflow, especially in highly sedentary, highly stressful industries like law, finance, or IT, where people can’t really get away from their desks,” Alvarez says.
Alvarez says this is why Premier’s Mobile Spa new workplaces wellness massage program works.
“What we focus on is helping employers help their employees to build healthy lifestyles directly at work through Onsite Chair Massages between 10 and 15 minutes right in your office throughout the day,” Alvarez explains. their program aims to “augment employee workflow, rather than disrupt it.”
Reason No. 3: HR Just Doesn’t Have Time
Some HR departments don’t put resources into health and wellness programs because they fail to see the value of them, but other HR departments would love to introduce health and wellness programs — if only they had the time to. With talent acquisition, on boarding, continued training, and conflict resolution all vying for a given HR rep’s time, health and wellness programs get put on hold.
What these HR departments need is a simple and efficient program that almost runs itself, Adis says. She and Alvarez believe their onsite wellness massage is just such a program.
“To manage [Premier’s Mobile Spa Wellness program], they really need fifteen minutes per month, so it’s a really low-admin and high-impact program,” Adis says. “Our value proposition to admins and HR at any firm is the fact that we can free them up to do what they should be doing more strategically, which is more about
talent search and retention of talent and keeping their star players on the field longer.”
Speaking of retention, Alvarez believes that lower turnover is yet another benefit of properly implemented health and wellness programs.
“Employers are realizing now that their competitive advantage is really in their people,” Alvarez says. “HR especially is now focusing on health as a strategy to retain new employees by saying, ‘Hey, we’re a company that cares about our employees’ health and we take care of them.’”

When employees aren’t healthy, businesses experience lower productivity and high absenteeism or turn-over. The combined symptoms of stress are costing U.S. businesses an average of $200 billion a year in reduced productivity and increased health and medical expenses. Tight muscles caused by stress and sitting behind a desk all day, especially at a workstation that is not ergonomically designed, can impede blood and lymph flow through the body. The result is decreased energy and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome. Chair massage counters the circulatory problems inherent with office work and offers an appreciated break for employees.
Even 15 minutes of massage to the neck, back, arms and hands can improve circulation, restoring energy levels and helping keep the body injury free.

How your employee can benefit.
The skeletal system: Bone is affected indirectly by massage. Improved circulation of blood brings oxygen and nutrients to the bones. Joint stiffness and pain can be reduced. As the muscles become more flexible, joint movement increases.
The muscular system: Some massage movements relax and stretch muscles, reducing muscular tension and cramp. Massage also makes muscles more flexible by reducing muscle tone. Muscles tired by exercise are more quickly restored by massage than by rest.
The nervous system: Soothing massage can provide relief from nervous irritability and stress-related conditions such as insomnia and tension headaches. When used energetically to stimulate, massage may relieve lethargy and fatigue.
Circulation system: Massage
can improve the flow of blood, which can help poor circulation. This is especially useful for anyone who is immobile.
Lymphatic system: Gentle massage stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps clear the body of a build-up of waste products. The relaxing effect of the massage can relieve stress, which in turn can boost the immune system.
Respiratory system: As you become more relaxed during a massage, respiration may become slower and deeper as you are using your diaphragm for breathing and expending less energy. Physiotherapists use cupping movements over the base of the lungs to relieve chest congestion.
Digestive system: Massage aids relaxation and therefore can help to increase the movement of food and waste products through the digestive system. This relaxation can have a balancing effect on the digestive system.
Urinary system: Waste products that have been released during massage find their way via the blood to the kidneys where they may be filtered out and eliminated.
Female reproductive system: Menstrual problems such as period pains and PMS can be alleviated by the relaxing effects of massage, as can menopausal symptoms
Release muscle tension, revitalize your energy and restore healthy immune function.

To enhance the relaxing nature of the experience your session can include aromatherapy. The human body reacts to pleasant scents; the nose relays messages to the brain and tells the body to relax and be comfortable.
