Ep. 55: Discover how healthy buildings, culture, and people lead to high profits.

Companies face two huge challenges that affect their bottom lines. An 80% employee disengagement rate and a staggering increase in health costs. Organizations and employees now spend an average of $18,000 per year per employee for health costs, a 61% increase in 10 years. Every indicator projects these costs will double before 2030. This is an unsustainable path. These costs are the tip to an even bigger iceberg, the hidden costs of time out of the office, distraction, disengagement, and turnover. In his latest book – The Healthy Workplace Nudge – Rex Miller explains the findings of research on 100 large organizations that have tackled the problems of employee health costs and disengagement.

Rex Miller is a five-time Wiley author. Two of his books won international awards for innovation and excellence. He is a respected futurist, frequent keynote speaker, and an elite leadership coach.

The book explains how to create a workplace that is good for people, releases them to what they do best and enjoy most, and produces great and profitable work.

Rex was a guest on this podcast last year, and he’s coming back with a very interesting and quite thought-provoking book – “The Healthy Workplace Nudge”.

Today with Rex we will talk about:
– What is a health workplace.
– Why and how do we need to re-humanize the workplace.
– How we can shift the corporate mindset to make work a place where it feels good and rejuvenating to be vs. a dreadful and stressful environment.
– Who should be responsible for creating a healthy work environment, and what are the key elements for a healthy workplace.
– Whether the concept of workplace happiness is a utopia.
– Rex will share some examples of healthy workplaces.
