Time and time again, there is one main reason employees cite for leaving one job for another: bad managers.
This is directly tied to company culture. A company culture that allows managers to perform poorly will have a high turnover rate. Poorly performing management teams could be due to managers themselves being overworked or not being managed well from above.
We recommend boosting company culture by bringing in corporate massage services.
3 Ways to Improve Employee Retention with Seated Massage
High turnover rates mean that a company’s culture does not allow employees to thrive. Here are some ways a corporate massage therapy program can help.
1. Corporate massage programs show investment in your workers
When you invest time and money on a service that benefits your employees first, they notice. And they stick around for it. Showing this kind of commitment to your employees tells them they matter to you, beyond how much work they can churn out.
Employees want to work where they are appreciated, and employee appreciation massage is becoming a popular way for employers to communicate their gratitude.
2. Chair massage improves company culture and morale
Company culture and employee morale are fickle things. They’re hard to measure with data and are often measured qualitatively.
Chair massage programs can turn company culture around when morale is low. All the key components to raising morale, such as giving personal recognition and giving employees something to look forward to, are things that a chair massage program covers.
3. Corporate massage supports your employees’ overall wellness
Healthy employees are happy employees. Massage is good for you. From lowered stress hormones to increased immune function, massage plays an important role in overall health.
Aside from the personal improvements employees see, their employers also enjoy lowered worker’s compensation claims with a regular massage program.
Bonus: If you pair your corporate massage program with a mental health program, you are well on your way to an even better company culture and higher retention rates.
Employees want to be part of a company where their entire being is supported.
