No one wants to sit in their own sweat at work all day. The easiest option would be to simply not do activities like commuting with bicycle to office, not going out on hot weather, not doing gym before work, etc… , but that doesn’t promote a healthy lifestyle.
Rinse and repeat
Biking to work has extraordinary health benefits and showers help facilitate that. Research published in the British Medical Journal found employees who cycled to work had a 41 percent lower risk of death, 46 percent lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease, and a 45 percent lower risk of developing cancer. Not only are cyclists physically healthier, but they’re also mentally healthier as well. The medical world is full of studies showing physical activity reduces stress, reduces anxiety, and improves self-esteem. Even half an hour of daily exercise has been shown to improve peoples’ subjective well-being and mood.
The health of employees is a goal worth achieving in itself, but it’s worth noting that healthy employees are also more productive and cheaper to employ.
A study in the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found employees who participate in wellness programs and focus on improving their health saved an average of $353 per person per year, adding over 10 hours of productive time annually. There is also the well known fact that exercise and a hot shower can lead to some of our best ideas.
Employers that promote healthy lifestyles are also saving on healthcare plans costs.
Health benefits are key to talent acquisition and retention.
A survey found 21 percent of job-seeking millennials consider the presence of shower facilities when making a decision on where to take a job. In today’s tight labor market competing for the best young talent, quality shower facilities can be the extra cherry on top that lands the candidate.
An AFLAC study found 60 percent of employees would take a job with lower pay but better benefits. Shower facilities that allow workers to seamlessly transition from a physical activity back to work are a benefit many employers are eager to offer.
