Workplace Wellness, Cayman Islands
Savvy employers know that a workforce that is healthy in mind and spirit is less likely to take sick days, will work harder, and be more committed to the company. It therefore behooves bosses to encourage employees to exercise, eat well and take care of their physical and mental wellbeing. The following local businesses and services assist employers and employees to achieve optimum wellness, thereby ensuring greater focus and productivity at work.

Creating functional and attractive working environments is an investment that pays off in reduced absenteeism due to injury, improved morale among employees, and ultimately results in increased profits. Workplace Environments assists businesses to identify and implement the best solutions for their workspaces by applying ergonomic principles to space planning, reconfigurations and furniture specifications, and as authorised dealers for Steelcase, have access to a wide range of quality office furniture, flooring and technology. www.workplace.ky
