"On the heels of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer decision to bar employees working from home, a new study suggests nearly half of U.S. workers would like their job less if that perk was taken away from them. In a national survey conducted among 500 Americans by SurveyMonkey, about 46% of respondents said they wouldn't be as satisfied with their work if they were required to come into the office every day. Not to mention, about 6% said they would even quit."
Once a nice-to-have perk, employee wellness programs have long since become “a strategic imperative,” according to the Harvard Business Review. Simply put: healthy employees cost less, stay longer and work harder. What’s good for the employee is good for the company.
