More and more people from the younger generation are joining the work force daily and are occupying a larger chunk of the corporate world. Yet, we see that they burn out very fast and within a year or two their productivity decreases. This is in spite of the fact that younger people are supposed to have better stamina and more vigor when they enter this arena.
Project deadlines, targets, work pressure, peer competition, plus their personal lives have taken a toll on the 'Mind and Body' of these individuals. Their body and mind have stopped keeping pace with their goals.
Most companies are plagued with:
- Absenteeism and Late coming
- Targets and goals not achieved in time
- Increasing health expenses on employees
- Larger insurance premiums and hospital bills
- High Employee attrition rates
And so forth...
The trend so far has been to deal with this matter case-to-case, solely after they have become a problem or if the Management is facing problems.
You would say that we have effective health care policy for our employees with early interventions like health screenings for various ailments; yet, this is not enough and has not been effective in addressing the problem.
