Corporate Chair Massage
Corporate Chair Massage can help reduce a Company's Workers Compensation Claims, as well as sick time and absenteeism costs.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, (OSHA), repetitive strain injuries, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, are the nation's most common and costly occupational health problem, costing more than $20 BILLION dollars a year, in Worker's Compensation Benefits!!
Work related STRESS is out of control these days! Employee perceptions of work conditions can have a big impact on an employer's bottom line. When employees have positive perceptions about their jobs, the organization benefits by having higher employee retention, increased customer loyalty, and a higher bottom line.
In 2009, Massage Magazine did a report on a pilot study that found that employer-funded massage therapy, resulted in both increased job satisfaction among their workers, as well as a decrease in the severity of pain among employees, and created stress-relief among their employees. They reported on another study, that showed that Employee Wellness Programs, actually ended up saving their Company's money.
Research done by North Carolina State University, shows that an increase in certain current business practices, such as outsourcing, hiring temporary workers, and focusing on project-based teams, is having a detrimental effect on workers, and likely poses long-term problems and costs for employers.
Their research also showed that people were still doing their jobs, and putting in a lot of hours, but that they were not doing the things that they would do if they were passionate about their jobs. Employees were withdrawing their loyalty from their employers, and employees were no longer as committed to their employer's goals.
With the changes in the economy over the last several years, many workers have been laid off, and many remaining workers have seen their pay and benefits slashed, while they are expected to pick up the work that the laid off workers were previously doing, on top of their own jobs. The result of all this, is an increase in work related stress.
Stress is the number one cause of disability, and is the underlying cause of 80-85% of ALL illnesses. Since work related stress has increased in recent years, employers who have set up Corporate Wellness Programs have taken steps to address the issue. Frequent massage can reduce the physical and mental effects of stress, and help to reduce employee burnout, and stress related diseases.
