Increasingly in the corporate world, employers are showing an interest in the wellbeing of their staff away from the workplace. The Office of National Statistics notes that 31million days of work are lost each year due to back, neck and muscle problems. The ONSs Labour Force Survey indicated that musculoskeletal conditions (bone and joint complaints) accounted for more prolonged absences than any other ailment, indeed these conditions account for 30% of all disabilities in the UK.
As we know prevention is far better than cure – and long desk bound working hours do have many negative side effects. Corporate wellness consultancy involves coming into your workplace and talking with employees about the effects their body mechanics has on not only their musculoskeletal health, but also psychological and emotional wellbeing.
