Zest recommends: Physical wellbeing


Are you interested in improving your physical wellbeing offering? We take a look at some of our recommended providers and how they can have an impact on your employees.

Health, wealth and self.

The three words everyone in the wonderful world of benefits should live by.

Whether it’s in or out of the workplace, your physical, financial and mental wellbeing should always take priority. But how can you ensure you’re fighting fit, fit as a fiddle or even fitter than a butcher’s dog?

Forget the odd yoga class or mindfulness session, it is time employers step up their wellbeing game and prove to their colleagues that they really are the most prized asset for the company.

Health is the real wealth

There’s no doubt about it.

Good health and wellbeing can be a core enabler of employee engagement and performance. But with the majority of businesses now considering wellbeing as a critical element of a benefits package, the challenge is now how employers stand out from the crowd when attracting and retaining talent.

As the cost of living crisis continues to impact the world as we know it, employees are much more likely to experience difficulties that impact their health.

According to our very own research, 59% of businesses say employee wellbeing has been in decline over the past 12 months, with 57% admitting it’s at an all-time low. Zest have also found that the larger the company is, the worst things seem to get.

It’s little wonder that 83% of employees are demanding more benefits to contribute to their wellbeing. Thankfully, businesses are taking note. 82% say that they’ve introduced more wellbeing benefits in the last year. In fact, wellbeing has become so intrinsic to the workplace that 71% have introduced a head of wellbeing.

So, as employee priorities shift away from being primarily motivated by things like salary, those who recognise and act on the growing desire from workers for an employer that recognises the importance of areas like wellbeing can elevate themselves from the competition as the race for talent hots up.

That’s where our Zest Marketplace comes in! It empowers you to take charge of your benefits strategy, allowing you to craft a bespoke benefits scheme that perfectly aligns with your company values.

So, we’ve dived into our list of trusted marketplace providers to highlight the ‘benefit’ of looking after your physical health.
