Why sport and cultural benefit?
Benefit contributes positively in personnel’s general state of health. This means less sick days (blog article in Finnish). For example, employees exercising 2-3 times a week have 4,5 days less sick days in a year than people who exercise one time per week. Investing in personnel’s sport activities is beneficial for employees’ well-being, which in turn has a positive impact on company’s level of performance.
Offering employee benefits signals personnel that they are important and their work well-being matters to the company. Good working atmosphere and well-being at work is valued more and more in addition to the monetary compensation. Therefore, employee benefits are one of the concrete ways to improve employer image and to increase employee’s commitment to the company.
