For many companies in the food and beverage industry, employees are valued as the company’s most important asset. But beneath that simple statement, lie a plethora of questions. If your workforce is your most important asset, are you regularly investing in it? Companies readily invest in scheduled maintenance of equipment but are you doing the same for your employees? How do you invest in your employees while improving the ROI for your business?

Investing in the health and safety of employees is one aspect in the ongoing maintenance of a workforce. This includes addressing employee discomfort and pain. Research has shown that when an employee feels their pain and discomfort is being attended to, they are more engaged and in a desirable state of mission commitment. Why is increasing employee engagement so critical? According to a recent Gallop study, organizations with highly-engaged employees experience a significant array of operational metric improvement with an amazing 41% reduction in quality incidents or defects. In other words, when employees are engaged, they make less mistakes, saving a company money.

Additionally, when a company invests in employee wellness workforce productivity increases. Research suggests that when organizations reduce discomfort with their employees, their productivity increases 5.5 hours per week per employee.
