BUPA Article ‘Workplace Wellness Ideas reposted by ‘The Ergonomic Physio, that we featured in (Australia, 2017)… 2 Hands Corporate Massage – as the name suggests, this team specialise in corporate massage. The majority of workplace injuries in the white collar sector are overuse injuries. Massage is a great complementary service to workplace ergonomics, as it provides an opportunity to relax the muscles and body parts that accumulate physical stress throughout the working year. And it feels great too, which is bound to improve staff productivity and happiness!

An Australian workplace wellbeing study conducted in 2017 cites that corporate massage makes up 7% of wellbeing programs currently running in Australia. https://www.convergeinternational.com.au/docs/default-source/research/a-future-that-works—workplace-wellbeing.pdf?sfvrsn=c434b56e_2 

2016 BUPA article Developing Healthier Bodies  “Workplace massage is a simple way to help make a positive difference within your team. The short appointment times allow for large numbers of employees to participate with minimal disruption to their working day.”

A 2019 G2 research hub article HR Trends: 5 Major Human Resource Innovations in 2019Corporate wellness initiatives that focus on financial and mental health, in addition to physical wellness solutions, will expand by 40% in 2019.

Victoria University Thesis (Melbourne 2013) Improving workplace productivity and corporate culture : perceptions and experiences of the effects of workplace massage. “The importance of attracting and retaining quality staff should not be understated. Achieving low staff turnover, minimal absenteeism, and maximum productivity are among employers’ greatest challenges…… the implementation of intervention strategies such as workplace massage provides employers with the opportunity to make the workplace more engaging.

Since the 1980s, many employers have increasingly been providing workplace massage programs to their staff as one initiative to redress this trend. Clearly, one of the underlying aims for employers in providing such facilities is to prevent and manage work-related injuries and stress.  “Improving workplace productivity and corporate culture” Deborah Lane, Victoria University 2015

2016 Forbes article ‘5 Reasons Executives Should Schedule A Massage Today’. some of the compelling reasons include; reducing pain and stress, improving productivity, sparking creativity and enhancing sleep. “When you get a massage, it is about you, People need that. We need nurturing.”

Oxford Article 2016 suggests massage is an effective way to manage pain.

An Australian study considered the combined effects of self-rated work performance and absenteeism. The data suggests the healthiest employees are almost three times more effective than the least healthy, with the healthiest employees working approximately 143 effective hours per month compared to 49 effective hours per month by the least healthy. Workhealth Research Synthesis Report, April 2013. http://www.iscrr.com.au/reports-pubs/research-reports/workhealth/workhealth_synthesis_report.pdf

Workplace health and wellbeing programs can significantly improve the health of employees. Put simply: healthy workers = healthy organisations = healthy business performance. Employers who run health and wellbeing programs do so because they want to:

  1. Improve work performance and productivity
  2. Reduce costs associated with absenteeism, presenteeism, disability and workers’ compensation
  3. Improve the culture of the organisation and retain existing employees
  4. Improve the organisation’s image, attract talented employees and fulfil corporate social responsibility obligations.

Australian Government Comcare Report; Benefits to business: the evidence for investing in worker health and wellbeing 2011. 

“Corporate massage has been promoted as an effective intervention for stress management and for reducing physical tension, and there has been many claims in favour of such programs, including that it relieves stress and tension (Bost & Wallis, 2006), increases productivity (Waite, 2006), improves morale (Hirschhorn, 1990), lowers health care costs (Williams, 2011), and reduces absenteeism (Hawkins, 2011)”

Global research has found that when employee health and wellness is managed well the percentage of engaged employees increases from 7% to 55%. This research also found self-reported creativity and innovation increases from 20% to 72% Right Management 2009, Wellness and Productivity Management: A New Approach to Increasing Performance, 15 July 2011.http://www.rightmanagement.com.au/thought-leadership/e-newsletter/wellness-and-productivity-management.pdf

The significant economic burden that work-related stress imposes upon the Australian economy appears to be growing steadily. WorkSafe Victoria (2011) reported that “stress is the second most common cause of workplace compensation claims in Australia, second to manual handling”
