Why Massage is a Tactical and relevant reward

The 3 main issues effecting employee performance

1. Lack of engagement                              2. High levels of stress
3. High levels of muscular skeletal problems (aches and pains)

Tactical and relevant rewards?

How many of your current reward or wellbeing programmes tackle these issues? While a box of chocolates, pizza, or fruit will always go down well, a deep pan pepperoni or the occasional banana (with the best will in the world) is never going to relieve an aching neck, tight shoulders, or reduce stress levels.

The rewards you implement need to be relevant so the employee knows that you appreciate that aspects of the role can be challenging, and that you have addressed them. By investing in a tactical and relevant reward programme you can improve morale and engagement levels, reduce stress, boost energy and improve muscular aches and pains.

Engaged, comfortable and awake!

There are 3 fundamental things an employee should be to perform well. Simply put, they need to be engaged, comfortable, and awake!

1. Engaged

An engaged workforce will drive business performance and have a direct impact on the bottom line. Engaged employees are people that are highly motivated and invested in the success of their organisations and are willing to make an extra, discretionary effort in their daily work. By incentivising staff with relevant rewards you make them feel valued, motivated and engaged.

2. Comfortable

Many employees (*typically 65%+) complain about muscular aches and pains as well as high levels of headaches affecting them. (How well does anyone work if they are in pain?) Employees frequently describe the level they feel they are working at when they have muscular aches and pains as around 70%. By reducing the impact of muscular skeletal problems and improving agent posture you can quickly and easily boost productivity.

3. Awake

In a recent employee wellbeing and engagement survey, one of the questions asked was ‘How do you feel at the end of an average shift?’ The word “tired”  is used on average in 75% of the answers, along with a variety of more colourful language. The obvious next question was ‘At what point during the day did you lose them?’ One of the biggest drainers of energy is stress, and one of the main ways to reduce stress is to energise! The more energised, refreshed and focused someone feels the less stressed they are, it gives people the “ability to cope”. By boosting employee energy levels you can ensure that they remain refreshed .
