(On-site Chair Massage)
SFA report in 2009 on Absenteeism in Ireland highlight the following figures:
National average absenteeism rate is 3.6% = 6 days per year
Small Firms average is 2.6% = 5 days
Medium Firms average is 3.7% = 8 days
Large Firms average is 4.6% = 10 days
Back-pain & Stress are the most commonly cited problems
Call centres recorded the highest absence rate at 3.67%, while software companies had the lowest rate at 1.56%.
If you were to consider the overall financial cost to a company for this level of absenteeism, it makes perfect sense to invest in a small but very effective way to ensure your employees are happy and healthy.
According to the Small Firms Association of Ireland; aside from the employees’ absence, stress can lead to a less productive workforce, faulty decision-making, and ultimately the possibility of legal action being taken against the company for negligence or constructive dismissal. Employers should be mindful that they are fulfilling their duty of care by including stress risk assessments as part of Health & Safety reviews.
“Stress has arisen as a key cause of absence from work, replacing back pain, as the most commonly cited problem.”, reports McNally (Acting Director of SFA)
Onsite chair massage is ideal for combating the effects of stress on the body and the mind. It can be ‘the lift’ a person needs to get through a stressful week and rather than come to breaking-point, their coping mechanisms improve once stress is reduced through the help of massage.
