In today’s corporate environment employee recruitment and retention has become increasingly difficult. Employees typically do not stay at one company for their entire careers or even for 10 or 15 years. This change in employee retention means companies not only compete for the best employees, but they also try to keep those employees for a longer time. To stay competitive, companies are offering employees more on-site amenities, including fitness facilities and recreational activities.

On-site fitness facilities and recreational activities have been shown to be a win-win for employees and employers. Employees who have access to a corporate wellness program and on-site fitness opportunities demonstrate an increase in job morale, satisfaction, commitment and performance. The opposite qualities – high absenteeism, high employee turnover rates, more customer dissatisfaction and variable product quality -  are seen in employees who have poor health and do not have access to a wellness program or fitness amenities. Thus, employees of companies with wellness programs and fitness amenities are more likely to enjoy their job and be loyal, helping combat low employee retention rates and poor morale.

Access to fitness facilities and recreational activities at work also strengthens a company’s culture and builds employee pride and trust. The nature of workplace wellness—a partnership between employee and employer—requires trust. Because personal health is such an intimate issue, investment in wellness can, create deep bonds, resulting in a higher employee retention rate and stronger work culture.
