The best reason for a business to look after the health of its employees and promote their well-being is that it can enhance productivity and loyalty. People with health problems are more likely to be absent from work, less productive when at work, and more likely to leave. As with health, employers are responsible for the physical safety of employees and anyone else who visits the workplace.
