Posted by CSR Middle East on September 8, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Investment in corporate wellness programmes is one of the most effective ways to improve business performance, a research report conducted by MEED has revealed.

The results of the study suggested that companies could see as much as 300% return on investment on money spent on corporate wellness initiatives.

“It is very important to recognise the cost-benefit relationship associated with wellness programmes,” said Maisaa Nasrallah, a senior health, safety and environment (HSE) Consultant and IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety & Health) UAE, Branch Chair.
