The majority (93 per cent) of global employees believe well-being is equally important to salary, a significant increase of 10 per cent year over year, according to a recent survey by Gympass.

The survey, which polled more than 5,100 employees, found 87 per cent said they’d consider leaving a company that doesn’t focus on employee well-being, up 13 per cent from the previous year. Nearly all (96 per cent) of respondents said they seek employers who prioritize well-being, with the majority noting emotional wellness (95 per cent) and physical wellness (93 per cent) boosts their productivity and satisfaction at work.

Roughly three-quarters (77 per cent) of employees reported engaging with their company’s well-being program, up nine per cent from the previous year. Most (91 per cent) company leaders said they’re able to take time for their own well-being, compared to 76 per cent of managers and 66 per cent of non-managers.

While Brazil and the U.S. (No. 1 and No. 2, respectively) were ranked the top countries in terms of employee satisfaction, 83 per cent of U.S. respondents said they’d consider leaving a company that doesn’t focus on employee well-being. The majority (91 per cent) of U.S. employees said occupational wellness impacts their productivity at work, followed by emotional wellness (78 per cent) and physical well-being (75 per cent).

“If [company leaders and managers] feel good about [their] well-being, [they] cannot assume the rest of [their] team does, too,” said Cesar Carvalho, co-founder and chief executive officer of Gympass, in a press release. “Leaders must ensure that employees, especially non-managers and those early in their careers, have the same time, resources and flexibility to take care of themselves. Wellness is not a seniority perk; it’s the most important thing to keep your employees healthy, productive and engaged at work.”
