Your Australian Employees Are Your Best Asset – So Do What You Can To Protect Them

As an Australian employer, it is always in the back of your mind that you want to try to cut costs whenever possible. This is normal business practice and it needs to be expected. However, you should never cut costs at the expense of de-motivating your staff members because as the title above states, your employees are your single best asset and so you need to do whatever you can to protect them. 

Your profits rely greatly on the happiness of your staff members and also on their general well-being and health. Australian businesses lose millions of dollars every single year due to staff taking days off sick due to the cold and the flu.

Maybe this year, you need to do something different so you can get out ahead of these viruses and so setting up a flu vaccination program might be just what your medical practitioner would order if they could. You need to do your research but the health insurance plan that you currently pay for every single year for all of your staff members probably does include the facility to offer flu shots and this is something that you need to look into today. 

If you are still somewhat apprehensive and you’re not sure if this would be a good decision for your business, then the following are just some of the benefits of doing so.

Productivity levels will go up – 

If your staff are getting the flu shots then this means that they are getting in front of the flu virus and when it comes, it won’t hit them as hard and maybe they will only have to take one day off instead of the usual five. They may not want to take time off at all because the shot has provided them with the protection that they need to continue. This means that none of your staff will be taking days off and so your productivity levels will go up as a direct result.

It will certainly increase staff morale – 

Many Australian employees often complain that they feel that their employers don’t value them enough and don’t take care of them enough. None of your staff can say this about you if you set up a flu vaccination program because you are letting them know that you are concerned about their health and that you are going to be there for them when they need it the most.

It will save you money – 

As was touched on briefly before, Australian businesses lose millions every single year due to sickness and yours will be included in this as well. This means that you are losing money but if your staff members are no longer taking days off sick then this is money that space in your wallet or purse.

Hopefully, you will now consider the option of introducing one of these programs into your business because it is better to be proactive than to be reactive for health.
