Corporate Yoga – Improve your bottom line

Recently there has been a huge increase all over the world in companies who provide weekly yoga sessions for their staff.

This simple move can affect a organization’s bottom line in many ways:

* yoga is scientifically proven to enhance levels of immunity so staff have a lot fewer sick days.

* yoga prevents repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome; lower back pain;

* when employees are fit and healthy they are more happy. In addition, companies are starting to recognize the value of happiness amongst their staff. When you are happy, you are more productive, healthier, and more likely to stay in your job. This study shows how happiness and productivity are correlated. By offering a very small fraction of the workday to practice balance and mindfulness, companies are investing in employee’s happiness, and so much more. What a great way to increase your company’s profits and improve the bottom line.

* yoga can be of therapeutic benefit for a host  of illness including back injuries;

* can attract talent – office yoga sets your company apart from competitors. More often, companies are seeing perks like yoga, meditation, and nap rooms as a worthy investment.

* perks like yoga, meditation, and naps can attract harder-to-find employees, like software developers and other competitive talent with multiple offers. Beyond that, these perks have real value, and studies show that yoga, meditation, and sleep measurably increase happiness. Companies are recognizing the financial benefits of offering these services.

* Employee retention can be a huge part of a company’s success. Finding and training new employees is an expensive task, and once you’ve found the perfect fit for a position in your company, it’s a big loss if they leave. Many companies feel the employee health programs they offer attract and keep employees.
