Employee Explains Why Massage Makes Her More Productive

Enhance your wellness program with massage

Have you been considering corporate chair massage for your office?  Staff writer, Kelly Metz-Matthews of Massage Table Outlet (www.massagetableoutlet.com), spells out why massage is important to her and some persuasive facts you can share with your boss.

Beyond the research that supports the healthy benefits of massage, such as reducing blood pressure, decreasing stress hormone levels, and increasing the body’s natural anti-depressant, serotonin, Ms. Matthews makes a case employers should consider when looking to reduce costs and increase productivity.

“Why Should Employers Care”

#1 Human Capital

“Happy employees are worth their weight in gold. Happy and skilled employees are priceless.” Boosting morale and recognizing hard work (especially during busier-than-normal quarters), fosters loyalty and dedication.

#2 Return On Investment

Did you know the the average ROI in wellness programs is $3.48:1 due to reduced medical costs, and $5.82:1 due to reduced absenteeism?

Is It Affordable?

As Kelly describes, “these [massage] programs don’t necessarily require huge upfront costs…Google employees have access to a subsidized (yes, subsidized) massage program.”

At other companies, employees are expected to pick up the tab. But, as she argues, “its accessibility to employees is monumentally important. By making it convenient…companies are facilitating wellness-oriented opportunities for their employees.”
