Workplace wellness: A fad or a recruitment tool?
Workplace wellness may seem like a modern buzzword, but it has been around for decades. In the 1900s, when few employers took an interest in the health of their staff, companies like Guinness became well-known for their benefits. Holidays, sick pay, free meals and healthcare have become standard in many companies today. In recent years, businesses are working to improve employee wellbeing through workplace wellness programmes. These initiatives are no longer seen as optional and have become a useful recruitment tool for digital companies, like Google and Workday. But are they here to stay?
