New York, NY, August 01, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- NY Health and Wellness Fairs continues to deliver successful in-house health fairs to corporate employees. With a full schedule of fairs already under way, they are getting rave reviews from HR Personnel and employees. Their purpose and message to raise employee awareness on health issues and to promote wellness and productivity continues to help New York and National corporations increase their bottom line.
A Human Resources Specialist for NASDAQ said, "I’ve received such positive feedback from our employees – many of whom said this is the best fair NASDAQ has ever had! Each wellness fair went off without a hitch! The fairs were all positive events that employees genuinely appreciated and enjoyed. So many times, we sit at our desk day in and day out, and forget to invest in our own health and wellness. I’m so glad that I’ve had the opportunity to partner with NY Health and Wellness Fairs, Inc."
As a result, NASDAQ has scheduled fairs for their employees throughout the 2016 year in all their locations nationally. Seeing the positive results from these events, other large corporations have come on board as well. Cantor Fitzgerald has now partnered with New York Health and Wellness Fairs for their in house events.
Many more are joining the movement, large and small. They know that profitability is, to a large degree, a function of employee performance. A healthy team is brighter, sharper, more alert, more active and engaged in their jobs. And, whether you realize it or not, there is a hidden cost in reduced team member productivity. Unhealthy employees can cost a company cold hard cash. It’s just a bit harder to see.
One of those costs comes in the obvious form of absenteeism -- an employee doesn’t show up for work due to illness, injury or some other physical difficulty and there is the lost production time as a result.
Now a new term has come into the language of business: "presenteeism." Presenteeism is when the employee shows up, but isn’t accomplishing as much due to health issues.
That’s because, he or she isn’t quite there – not quite "running on all cylinders."
Many people come to the job not feeling well – they work with back pain, allergies, arthritis, poor sleep patterns, high blood pressure and other conditions that are just enough to impair their performance and productivity.
It results in lost production that adds up to lower return on investment on the biggest investment every company makes: their employees.
A spokesperson for NY Health and Wellness Fairs stated, “Information is the key to optimal health. With New York Health and Wellness Fairs, Your Health Fair will include booklets and pamphlets as well as consultations with the doctors present. Beyond that, we have tests that can detect physical problems in their early stages, and our health care professionals provide immediate results and explanations on-site. Together, New York Health and Wellness Fairs with your company, can raise awareness on health issues of universal concern, and minimize your company’s health care concerns as we have with countless organizations. This means healthier and happier employees, higher productivity and increased profits.”
