Case Studies & Benefits.
The benefits that MCE provide can be viewed in three parts - benefits to individual employees, benefits to the employer and benefits to the business goals.
Nevertheless, it is generally accepted that we should see the three areas as interconnected, as achieving a sustainable profitable company goes hand in hand with investment in the employee`s wellbeing.
Apart from the evidence provided by MCE`s client companies, numerous independent studies and well known names have reported the same tangible benefits from having workplace care and wellbeing within the culture of the organisation.
Employee, Employer & Company Benefits.
The positive benefits for the workforce include greater happiness, less stress, a more positive environment, healthier staff, increased work focus, better team relationships, individuals feeling a greater sense of value, and a more meaningful quality of life.
The positive benefits for the CEO, business owners or managers, include less stress, more time, greater ability to focus on company strategy, a more supportive workforce, a greater sense of accomplishment, and a happier, healthier work life.
Company benefits include a reduction in sickness absence, staff turnover, accidents and injuries, claims, and less resource allocation, with an increase in employee satisfaction, company profile, productivity, competitiveness and profitability.
