29 Aug How Welfare Units Can Improve Employee Productivity
Welfare units offer employees more than hygienic and comfortable working environments. Businesses need to keep their skilled labour happy if they want low absenteeism and amplified productivity. Welfare units are a place to regain composure, freshen up, and act as a venue for workers to talk.
The Negative Impact of Poor Worker Welfare
Dim and dirty welfare facilities can result in many negatives for your business. Poor lighting does nothing for a worker that has spent most of their night on a muddy construction site. The lack of a clean toilet and a warm place to eat and sit is going to increase the amount of sick leave taken.
Older style welfare units tend to use strong chemicals to hide the smell of open toilets, which do not prevent diseases from spreading. Poor hygiene is the most efficient way for a virus to travel around a workforce— taking everyone off the job and leading to weeks of disruption.
Improve the Mood of Your Site
Mental welfare is as important as the physical wellbeing of a worker — they are symbiotic. Working on a construction site at night and even during the day can be lonesome. Tasks that demand a worker to have total focus give little time for the kinds of discussions that can cement a team together.
Workers need a venue where they can meet during breaks, for refreshments and food. They need an area with heating, seating, and a roof to protect them from the elements. But workers also need space and a table where they can eat in comfort.
Anything that a business can do to lower the stress levels of their workers will help everyone. Low stress means lower accident rates, better health and a stronger team. Accidents take workers off of sites and out of action — these cost businesses in compensation and in reducing onsite skills.
Studies show that rest and a cheerful outlook will boost a worker’s productivity — and create a loyal workforce. A worker that feels like their employer is looking after them will try to perform their job to their best abilities.
