Artificial Intelligence in the Healthcare Industry


 

Google was one of the first mainstream companies to utilise Artificial Intelligence in their search functionality, and with their new Google Deepmind Healthproject in the third stage of testing, they are the most well-known of the companies to promise a revolution in the healthcare industry.

Hundreds of start-ups and established firms are working with clinicians to improve care levels, decrease costs, and help researchers develop new drugs. The sky is the limit, but the industry is understandably taking painstaking care where human life is involved.

Artificial intelligence in 2018 isn't like neural networks that mimic the human brain, envisioned by science fiction writers and movie producers for the last several decades. Instead, the incredible expansion of storage space and processor speeds can give doctors and caregivers a more coherent picture to make medical decisions.

It is also allowing imaging specialists and drug researchers to do what was literally impossible without AI applications. Artificial intelligence is already part of our life without us knowing it, and here are the primary areas where we believe it will make an impact on our health in the very near future:

Medical Records


Doctors need maximum information possible to make the best decision possible. Even in the few circumstances when they have ALL medical records for a patient, doctors are busier than ever, and seldom have the time to read what sometimes runs hundreds of pages of dense medical information. Artificial intelligence is already helping to bring all that data together and offer the best "snapshot" for doctors.

There are dozens of studies concerning avoidable deaths resulting from medical errors. Take America as an example where 1 of every 100,000 people who checked into a hospital died because of an avoidable medical error. While that number may seem small, medical errors are still recorded among top three causes of death in America. This is true in other parts of the world such as UK where the medical negligence compensation culture is costing the NHS millions of pounds a year.

AI promises to bring all medical histories together and help humans avoid the kind of mistakes that we all fear when we must visit a hospital. 

Diagnosis


By all accounts, diagnosing medical maladies is an art. An upset stomach and low-grade fever could mean flu, but it could also mean something much more serious. Family practitioners, for example, usually see a patient every year or two, and have personal experience with them. Chronic complaints can be investigated or written off based on their experience.

Artificial intelligence can make those doctors way more effective.

Doctors rely on patients to tell them how they feel, and add that to the test results, in order to make a diagnosis. AI can give a doctor a view of what is truly likely, and perhaps an area to explore that they hadn't considered.

Doctors may see 10-30 patients a day, AI can bring together the experience gathered from millions of such visits and offer the medics the most likely causes, and more importantly, potential illnesses that they hadn't considered. With about 12 million Americans misdiagnosed each year, AI can only help.

Triage


Triage was developed for war when combat medics and surgeons had to make hard decisions about who to treat first. AI promises to help with those decisions in two ways.

First, the FDA has begun to approve AI applications that illuminate medical scans better than even the most talented human tech. They are providing predictive diagnosis of stroke, heart attacks and other major medical events. Reading MRI, retinal imaging, and ultrasounds is an art that the best medical personnel can read like tea leaves. A machine that learns the lessons of thousands or millions of scans and potentially identify things that many humans can miss.

Second, A & E Departments around the world can be extremely busy and hectic. AI can get the medical records together while in transport, prepare doctors for a single event, and even help them determine the best order to take patients in large accidents or at peak times. 

AI is here, it's being used in the medical field, and as it continues to develop, the benefits will be felt by all of us.

Is your glass half full or half empty?



Geraldine, a fictional character of Flip Wilson, humorously quipped, “You get what you see”. Shakespeare voiced a more literary opinion when he said, “The perception of good or bad does not exist; only thinking makes it to be so”. It is Buddha who said it as it should be, “The life one leads, is a creation of oneself mind”.

Can you think of a better way to describe life that how Buddha, fictional Geraldine and Shakespeare did. Your life is like your own creation; it turns out just like you mould it.

So what does that mean to us?

The glass half empty mindset,

For those who do not view life through objective lenses, they are subjective beings. If you filter what you see in life then you are a biased individual. That is personality and everyone carries his or her own.

Pessimists will see differently to their optimistic colleagues. In the same vein, introverts see things in differently to extroverts. And life seems to reward us in equal measure of what we are or what we belief in. For instance, if you are anxious everything around you can seem fast paced and out of control; if you are inclined towards depression, your life will have a greyness about it.

Whatever perspective you have in life will characterise everything you do in your life. If you see your work as a chore, it will be so as long as you think this way. Your perception will also affect those around you and if they are not independent thinkers, you run the risk of being surrounded by negativity.

The glass half full mindset.

A massive body of research agrees that there is a lot of power in seeing the glass half full. Bright, optimistic people are not only generally happier but also healthier and wealthier according to research. All three – happiness, health and wealth - are what make a complete life.

In a study by a reputable psychologist, Susan Segerstorm, law students who held onto their optimism ten years after graduation took home an annual salary of $32,667 more than their colleagues who had lost their hope.

Keeping a positive mindset will drive you towards actions that will deliver positive results. It does not matter if you hit a bad patch; keeping optimism with you will deliver good results.

In fact, thinking of bad stuff will actually drive you into poor results. Instead of doing things that will minimize your failure, you will instead do nothing or do stupid things that will amplify your failures.

Happy and optimistic people will attract friends who are similar in character and their positivity will be infectious so a virtuous circle of friends, colleagues and contacts will be created. The opposite is true for natural pessimists. 

How to change into a glass half full person

So, how do you stay optimistic in the face of failures and distractions?

Create opportunities out of your problems – instead of seeing a work issue as a chore, see it as a challenge with which you can impress your colleagues.

Going networking? Don’t dread walking into a room full of strangers, see it as an opportunity to meet new people, walk tall, smile and ask questions. And remember, most of the people you are meeting are probably nervous as well as you.

Package yourself as an optimist and life will smile back to you = like poles attract.

Set out to do something out of your comfort zone and find your confidence and self esteem grow as a result.

In summary.

The life of someone with a positive mindset is likely to be more fulfilling than that of someone who is constantly negative about everything. That said, even the most positive people have setbacks and personal issues but they seem to be able to bounce back from adversity whereas the negative person accepts it as par for the course of their life. Try to avoid the negative route – it’s easier than you think!

Are 24/7 Communications Detrimental to Our Health?



Business today

In our highly competitive world businesses are using all the means to maintain competitive advantages. The main group of people that can suffer as a result is the staff.

Business owners and executives who influence the direction of the company and are rarely ‘off duty’ but maintaining a competitive edge will also impact on staff working conditions. Employees can often endure long working hours with weekend work frequently being a necessity.

The effects on the workforce

During the working hours, staff are supposed to be in constant communication with each other. Thanks to the advancement of technology, they can now communicate through various platforms such as social media, emails, messaging applications such as WhatsApp, Skype, SMS, mobile phone and landline calls.

As much as this may seem to be a positive, if not highly necessary set of basic business needs and will streamline the overall performance of the business, it comes with its disadvantages. Did you know that 24/7 communications can be detrimental to your health?

Several reports have proven beyond doubt that such activities have adverse effects on your physical and mental well-being and we examined the findings of a report entitled “Can work make you sick?

(http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/02678373.2011.569175#.U1l2eVe9bc)

A relationship between “long working hours and stress” gave shocking findings on the effects of prolonged working hours to the stress levels. The study found out that stress in a business comes in different forms.

Workforce conflict

It is ridiculous to believe that all the interactions with your colleagues will go smoothly. It is quite usual to challenge another’s thinking and makes for healthy debate – usually. However, there are those instances that can also result in anger and frustration creating tension and stress which can carry over into so called relaxation time at home.

The types of disputes can include workload, remunerations, lack of cooperation, and conflict on respective roles; personal issues may also occur and all can be troubling and affect your life directly – especially if carried out by email, text etc which have no respect for time of day.

Workforce health

A poll published by NPR News revealed that 43% of staff admit that their stress is caused by long working hours and poor sleeping habits (https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/07/11/484917853/work-can-be-a-stressful-and-dangerous-place-for-many).
What should you expect when you are required to be at your workplace very early
and leave late?

Professor Robert J. Blendon of the Harvard Chan School and the director of this research study stated that “The first task of the American employers should be to reduce stress levels at their working place,”

One negative effect of long working hours and 24/7 communications is the loss of focus. Your ability to stay sharp on the job goes down, and you may find yourself making unexplained mistakes.

Those working in risky environments such as busy workshops can be easily injured by lack of concentration. Long working hours accompanied by inadequate safety measures are a recipe for high-stress levels. This is why, according to the same research, staff in retail shops and construction industries lead in having high stress levels of 26% and 23% respectively.

Summary

From this article, it is clear that staff in a lot of organizations are a frustrated lot. Apart from suffering from burnouts, they also go through depression and we look towards responsible employers to be ever more conscious of how 24/7 communication can be detrimental to your health and provide the necessary support and advice to employees.

Could Breathwork be the 2018 self help fad?



Health and fitness is a concern for many people and especially those looking to lead a healthy and fulfilling business and personal lives.

Health is looked at from different perspectives such as physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Meditation and mindfulness have grown in popularity in recent years due to their usefulness in improving various aspects of human health.

We have seen numerous practitioner centres being established to offer lessons and guidance on how people can use meditation exercises to improve their well-being.

A search on Amazon Books will highlight the publishing industry niche that has grown up around meditation and mindfulness which is an indication of the important role that they hold in the health and fitness spectrum in today's society.

However, there’s a new kid on the block!

Breathwork has been gaining popularity as a means through which individuals can improve their well-being. Could it replace meditation and mindfulness?

Breathwork is a collective term used to describe a variety of contemporary wellness practices. These practices aim to influence the mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional wellness of an individual through the conscious control of breathing.

Several forms of Breathwork therapy currently exist. The main objective of any Breathwork therapists work to improve the well-being of an individual through an improvement of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state of the individual by practice of various therapeutic Breathwork techniques.

It is believed that these techniques can be used to minimize anxiety, relieve chronic pain, deal with anger issues, overcome depression, cure trauma and post-traumatic stress, and solve the negative emotional impacts of physical illness.

Types of Breathwork

Re-birthing Breathwork:

This Breathwork technique is also referred to as conscious energy breathing. It is considered as a means through which individuals can release traumatic memories that have been suppressed since childhood. Participants are usually asked to lie down on their backs, relax, and engage in normal breathing. Through deep relaxation, pent-up energy and subconscious issues are released.

Holotropic Breathwork:

The primary goal of this exercise is to achieve the wholeness of body, mind, and spirit. It is often conducted in groups with participants lying down and engaging in breathing exercises. The session ends with participants sharing and discussing the issues that they have discovered about themselves.

Clarity Breathwork:

Deals with any issue that hinders the healthy and free flow of breath and energy. It is founded on the belief that many people do not breathe properly or to their maximum capacity. It, therefore, aims to enable people to breathe properly and achieve mental clarity.

Where Breathwork differs

While Breathwork and mediation aim to achieve similar results, they are different practices. In meditation, a person focuses his or her mind on a specific thought, object, or an activity such as breathing to achieve emotional calm or mental clarity.

Just like Breathwork, it can also be used to reduce anxiety, stress, pain, and depression.

Mindfulness, on the other hand, is the psychological process of focusing on the present. It can be achieved through meditation and Breathwork.

All of these practices differ individually but are complementary in various ways. The increasing popularity of Breathwork as a self-help practice is, however, due to the ability to apply the practice in both meditation and mindfulness. 

If in doubt, consult your doctor.

Becoming A Better, Fitter, and Healthier Me in 2018


Are you planning to live a better life in 2018? Then start by being true to yourself and change your mindset by making incremental changes. Instead of aiming for impossible goals and holding yourself captive of your own making, having a fresh and organised approach is your best approach. Planning and aiming for feasible and achievable options are far better for both physical and mental health.

Does It begin with me?

Yes. It begins with you. Changing the mindset is the foundation of a successful fitness plan. If you believe that working out or having to check what you eat is no fun then you are setting yourself up for failure! The moment you decide to change your mind; you change your body. It is for this reason you need to alter your mindset and create a sense of positivity within you.

What do I have to eat?

By now you probably have some idea of what is right for your body. It is important to note that lean protein and veggies are good for the body. And truth be told, giving yourself something to look forward to is good too. The piece of cake and drink once in a while, and having some friends come to visit is also a vital component of a healthy living.

Forget the strict diet plans and do some research on the best foods for your body type.

Make sure you avoid eating too little because this will slow down your metabolism when working out. Increase your energy levels by sensibly, cut out snacking and then exercise to burn any excess calories.

It is on that note that we pose the question:

Are successful people more fit, or are fit people more successful?

Statistics show that successful people are very motivated and it is from this drive that they choose to become fitter as their personality is also affected by the whole process.

When the human body is physically active, it releases endorphin known as Brain Derived Neurotropic Factor (BDNF). This enables you to think more clearly and also make better decisions in life and in business. Try it. It works!

Working out increases the level of BDNF in your brain hence enabling heightened cognitive functions which are a great remedy for mental health. Physical and mental fitness is basically having more energy and stamina, including staying healthier all year round.

A significant number of top executives believe that physical fitness is critical to career success. They further explain that being overweight can be a serious career obstacle that most people would prefer to avoid.

How do I plan for the rewards?

Physical movement is rewarded by chemical systems inside our brain. It is therefore important to combine good nutrition with planned physical activity.

When you feel good you increase the chances of a healthy mindset making you better able to cope with workouts and diets that might previously have been daunting. It’s never late for transformation because in life the only constant we know of is change and incremental change creates positive habits in a stress-free way.

Be aware that the improvements will be gradual and don’t expect too much too soon but over time you will begin to notice significant changes in work performance, productivity, physical fitness and mental sharpness.

Good luck and remember Mayfair, we care

6 Ways of making sure that you keep those Resolutions!


 

Many of us spend the last few days of one year, and the first few days of the next, making resolutions. However, according to several studies, only 8% of people who make business or personal resolutions succeed in achieving them. This is a poor success rate.

 

We have discovered that by making both your personal, and business decisions realistic and specific, you may be able to keep them throughout 2018. For instance, ‘I want to lose 4lbs in weight during January’ will work better than ‘I’m going on a diet in the New Year to lose 2 stone’. Similarly, ‘I am going to make 4 new business contacts in January’ seems far more achievable than a vague sales target for the year.

 

Below are some of the best pieces of advice for maintaining both personal and business resolutions.

 

1. Start Small When making 2018 resolutions, think of ones you can keep. For instance, if your goal is to start working out, instead of exercising for seven days a week, start with 3 to 4 days a week. By starting small, you will be motivated throughout the year.

 

2. If you are resolving to become ‘healthier’ then please do not think you have the power to change every unhealthy step in your life at once; it is impossible. Instead, begin by changing one action at a time. Small steps will lead to big changes.

 

3. Talk about your resolutions Share resolutions and experiences with friends, business partners and family members. You can also look for a support-group to help you achieve your goals. For example, if you are planning to stop smoking, join friends or co-workers who are planning to quit smoking. Having a person to share your successes or struggles will make your 2018 healthy and less intimidating.

 

4. No one is perfect Do not beat yourself for not achieving a goal. Perfection is impossible. Minor mistakes when achieving your goals are OK and very reasonable. Do not be mad because you skipped gym sessions for the whole week. We all have up and downs. The best thing is to get better from your missteps and get back on the track as soon as possible. One tiny mistake should not let you abandon essential 2018 goals.

 

5. Pay yourself after a successful step Every successful phase deserves a reward. So, once you make a victory, no matter how small it is, reward yourself. However, the prize should not counter your set goals. For instance, do not reward yourself with a bar of chocolate if you are targeting weight loss! Treat yourself in another way. This style of reward will make you healthy and motivate you to meet the next target.

 

6. Seek Support. Seeking help from people who care and can listen is an excellent way to manage any stress that can be caused by new year resolutions. If you are unable to achieve your personal or business goals, seek professional help. Experts who are trained to understand the relationship between the body and the mind can help you.

 

Also, today there are several apps you can use for every resolution. For example, there are workout apps, diet apps and financial apps. Bottom-line Most individuals give-up on their business and personal new-year resolutions within one month. But by following some basic coping mechanisms, you can be different. Begin by building healthy behaviours, seeking help when needed, and sticking to your goals. By doing this, you will be able to keep your realistic 2018 resolutions.

Important Tips for Reducing Stress During This Holiday Period and into 2018



As we approach 2018, the last thing that anyone would want is to imagine carrying over the frustration, depression and anything else that disappointed them during 2017.

 

Luckily, we always have a festive season towards the end of the year which provides everybody with ample time to reflect on the year, forget about anything that happened, have fun with their loved ones and end the year on high note. Stress is a normal thing especially towards the year-end considering all the many things you've been through, but depending on how you deal with it, you can either carry it forward or resolve to have a better 2018.

 

This article will, therefore, take you through a few tips for reducing stress during this festive season and start your 2018 as a rejuvenated person.

Focus on all the positive things that you achieved:

 

One mistake that most make is letting all the negative things take up much of your thinking. The way your mind responds is directly dependent on the type of information that you feed it; as a result, if you choose to focus on the negative things, it will automatically lead to more stress and depression. However, if you choose to appreciate all the positive things that you achieved during the year, you will not only be reducing stress but you will also feel more relaxed and energized to start the following year. 

 

Surround yourself with positive people:


Yes, you’ve probably heard this one before but it’s true. Attitude is like the common cold – it’s infectious! By mixing with people who have a positive attitude to life you will find that positivity wearing off on you. Conversely, if you mix with negative people……..well, you know what will happen.

 

Spend ample time with your loved ones:

 

Usually, during the year, we indulge in a lot of activities which doesn’t always involve those closest to us. Try to stay close to your loved ones at this time of year because you can make them feel appreciated, happy and comfortable and they can do likewise for you.

 

Observe your diet:

 

When one has stress, there is a high likelihood that you would default to alcohol or overeating. This is a very common habit among a good number of people under stress especially during this festive seasons where there is a lot of parties.

 

This can be fun while it lasts but come January 2018, reality will catch up with you, trust me, you don't want to start your year that way. To avoid such frustrations, work on your diet, make sure that your diet programs are full of vitamins and minerals salts. Besides, despite the fact that there may have a lot of parties which only comes ones in a year, avoid binging, just take enough and enjoy.

Engage in exercises:

 

When you've been stressed towards the year-end, workouts may be a perfect way to keep such problems at bay during this festive season. There are a lot of activities that you can engage ranging from swimming, going for hikes with your loved ones or friends, mountain climbing, cycling among others. Such exercises, will not only help you achieve body fitness but will also help you in reducing stress as kick-start the year 2018.

Dos and Don'ts When Travelling Abroad in 2018



With 2018 getting nearer and nearer, it's easy to get excited by the prospects of traveling abroad and spending some well-earned quality time with the family or developing new business contacts and opening new markets.

 

However, before you let the excitement cloud your judgment, there are a few things you must look out for to ensure your safety when traveling.

Here are the Dos and Don'ts when traveling abroad in 2018:

DON'T...


Exchange your money at the airport. They will rip you off and you probably won't need all the money right away anyway.

Be obvious when driving a rental car. When traveling abroad, looking like a tourist can attract the wrong crowd. So keep all maps and brochures out of sight.

Travel without international medical insurance. Anything can happen during your trip and if you're not prepared an adventure can turn sour pretty quickly.

Walk with a bag, purse or mobile phone in your hand. Thieves can snatch it easily and run away before you even find out what happened.

Keep your cash, credit cards, jewellery, and other valuable possessions in your luggage, and never leave your luggage too far.

Carry your passport or large sums of cash in your pockets. You'd be surprised how easily a pickpocketer can go through a tourist's pockets without raising any suspicions.

Go shopping without a trusted local in countries with a weaker currency than yours. Merchants can spot a tourist a mile away and raise their prices accordingly.

Walk through unfamiliar locations, isolated, or poorly lighted areas at night since these places are where tourists are more likely to get mugged.

DO...


Travel in groups. There is safety in numbers and meeting other fellow travelers can make your stay even more exciting.

Check that your credit card works in your country of destination. Many banks abroad now use EMV technology. So if you're still using a magnetic-strip card you might have to carry more cash with you.

Be aware of any man-made distractions, like somebody asking you for a cigarette, spilling a drink at you, or being noisy all of a sudden. These are all common tactics used by pickpocketers to rob tourists while they are looking the other way.

Make copies of your passport. If it gets stolen or lost you're going to have a hard time coming back home. Take several copies, leave one at home and bring another one with you.

Use luggage straps to stop thieves from quickly taking something out while you're not looking. Also, keep your money, passport, and credit cards in a travel wallet and put it in a place where it is easy to see but difficult to steal.

Get an updated guidebook. If anything, guidebooks are filled with detailed maps that will help you get where you want without having to ask a complete stranger for addresses.

Decide whether to check your bag or not. Every airline has their own guidelines, so make sure that you do your research first and then you won't have to pay any incremental fees later.

Keep your vehicle's door locked and your windows rolled up while you're driving. This will prevent thieves from quickly reaching inside your car and snatching any valuable at hand while you're waiting in traffic.

 

Take all this advice and you will avoid unnecessary upset.

Risk assessments in the workplace



Risk assessment is a fundamental part of good health and safety practice in the workplace. It is the careful investigation of what in your workplace could cause harm to the people and identifying sensible measures to control risks that may occur. Risk assessment is important for safety management since it helps one know whether the company have taken enough precaution to prevent any harm occurrence. Risk assessments protect both employees and the business, as well as ensuring that the business complies with the various legal requirements.

Many people think that incidents occur due to negligence or mistakes from employees when often it’s due to insufficient management controls. It’s also important to note that carrying out risk assessment will not totally prevent the occurrence of accidents and ill health but will play a crucial role in reducing such incidents. 

Some of the ways to improve risk assessments are:

• Proper training of both employees and employers to help them in knowing the various ways to mitigate and prevent risks.
• Regular inspections around the workplace.
• Having specific outlined work procedures.
• Employee fitness to ensure good health.
• Sufficient and competent supervision.

Specific reasons why risk assessment is important:

• For financial reasons. Effective safety and health management in the workplace contributes to business success. Risk assessment prevents accidents and health issues which inflict significant costs that a company could do without. 
• For legal reasons. In case of an accident, there may be significant legal consequences towards the company once investigations are conducted and no safety statement and risk assessment was conducted. 
• Moral and ethical reasons. The procedure involved in carrying out risk assessment has employers ethically bound to ensuring that their employers do not incur any avoidable accidents or suffer illness by reducing the likelihood. 

 

Risk assessments should be viewed as a positive thing for all concerned as being aware of, understanding, and avoiding potential accidents is a measure that those who take risk assessment seriously, will benefit from.

The Link between Health and Productivity

A happy, healthy and productive workforce is a definite asset that boosts a business's bottom line. Fact!

 

Most company bosses view wellness programs as a generous perk and not a strategic imperative. Newer surveys and research tell a different story. A variety of research shows that employees who work out for at least 30 minutes, three days a week are 15% more likely to perform better at their jobs both in terms of quality and quantity.

 

The physical and mental health of employees has a significant effect on efficiency, cost and efficacy in various ways. Organisations in support of healthy habits and wellness equal a more productive and loyal workforce while reducing overall costs.

How does your employee’s well-being affect your company’s bottom-line?

Employee wellness play a major role in the workplace, and savvy organisations are reaping the benefits. Here are some of the ways employee wellness affects your company's productivity.

Absenteeism

Absenteeism is one of the most prominent issues management have to deal with as they cost not only the company time but also money. According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), one of the most effective ways of managing absenteeism is by implementing a wellness program. Companies that support workplace wellness programs report a higher percentage of employees at work every day.

Engagement and Turnover

Staff engagement is an important measure as it looks at how committed people are to their company’s values, success and their jobs.


Employees that are unengaged with their jobs are more likely to leave their
job. Companies that experience high turnover incur more costs when hiring new employees. High turnover also affects a company’s productivity, morale and customer service. Wellbeing is crucial to keeping employees satisfied and committed to their jobs.

Companies that run a robust health and wellness program enjoy greater loyalties since their
employees feel engaged and cared for. Various studies show that healthy and
committed employees perform better and linger longer at their workplace.

Productivity, efficiency and Accuracy

Employee wellbeing is crucial to how much work gets done and how well it is performed. A recent study issued in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine stated that employees with unhealthy habits display subpar work performance than their healthier counterparts.


Well-being takes into account the physical and mental health of a person and provides
life satisfaction. Happiness in the place of work influences productivity
positively. A study done by the University of Warwick showed that happier
people perform better than the unhappy individuals.

Reduction in long-term healthcare costs

It is a well-known fact that healthy employees cost
a company less. With poor lifestyle habits, an ageing workforce and expensive
health care, prevention of health issues makes better financial sense than
cure.

Increased employee morale

Providing your employees with health and wellness initiatives goes a long way in showing that you value, support and care for their wellbeing. This way, you will not only appeal and retain the best candidates, but you will also be able to boost their morale and job gratification which equals high productivity.

Without a doubt, there is an excellent link between employee health and productivity. Ensuring that you provide a healthy, happy workforce by devoting in a comprehensive workplace wellness program that is specially made to suit your employees’ needs is a win, win situation which will reap vast rewards all around.
