Many Fortune 500 companies, such as Boeing and Exxon Mobile, are boosting their bottom lines by adding massage to their employee wellness programs. Corporate chair massage programs shrink turnover rates and absenteeism while improving job satisfaction and productivity. As a result, employers can expect triple digit returns on their wellness investments.
Houston, TX (PRWEB). With a lagging economic recovery looking probable, small businesses are approaching the warming job market with caution. Recruiting and training new employees can be costly. Coupled with a high turnover rate, it can wipeout revenue and halt growth. This has caused companies to look for creative ways to retain employees and entice competitive talent. Fortune 500 companies, such as Boeing and Exxon Mobile, have taken the lead on a popular new trend of massage in the workplace. Corporate massage has been clinically proven to have immediate effects on anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, headaches and alertness.
NOISH, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, reports that work-related stress accounts for 40 percent of job turnover. Replacing that employee can cost up to 200 percent of their annual salary. Additionally, employees suffering from stress are absent more frequently and are less productive. Work-related stress alone is estimated to cost American companies more than $300 billion a year. One case study at University of Miami School of Medicine has shown that chair massage is not only a potent treatment for anxiety, it also enhances alertness and math computations.
Other benefits of corporate massage are relief from back pain, headaches and repetitive strain injuries (RSI.) OSHA reports that RSI is the leading cause of workers compensation and disability claims. Additionally, Cedars-Sinai has shown that massage cause significant increases in the number and percentage of lymphocytes. These white blood cells are the natural defenders in the immune system that fight off pathogens like Flu and the common cold.
