Relational Wellness: Nissan's Business!

Employees in failing relationships cost employers money.  Research estimates that $6 billion is lost by American businesses due to decreased productivity stemming from relationship difficulties.
Conversely, employees in successful relationships increase profits for their employers.
When companies invest in the physical and relational wellness of their workers, returns on investments can range as high as $6.85 for every $1 spent.

Unlike Vegas, relationship problems at home don’t stay at home; they follow people to work and negatively impact their productivity…….Jim Adams III and Teresa Adams, MAMFT, LPC, NCC

Relationships are no longer only the realm of clergy, counselors, and EAPs (Employee Assistance Programs). Companies wanting to increase their profitability will do well to realize that business takes place in the boardroom and the bedroom. It is in every company’s best financial interest to understand how marriage and family wellness affect their business and to invest in the promotion of relational wellness.

The Problem- Relationship problems often cause decreased productivity

 Manufacturing productivity is hurt directly by relationship and marital problems.

Failing relationships can lead to affairs in the workplace, and these relationships lead to decreased productivity (Corporate Resource Council)

Divorce disrupts the productivity of an individual worker for as long as three years.  

In the year following marital dissolution, employees lost an average of over 168 hours of work time, equivalent to being fully absent four weeks in one calendar year (Mueller, 2005).

The lack of relational wellness is especially problematic in the manufacturing industry where disgruntled and distracted employees can contribute to products that potentially directly negatively impact the end user.

Family Matters In The Workplace offers custom designed programs and solutions that protect employers, promote relational wellness, and provide employees with practical and personal tools to succeed both at home and at work!

"As a HR professional, I too have been following current events surrounding domestic abuse and parental abuse cases that have been receiving major media coverage recently. In addition to the horrible human toil these events have taken on the affected families, each situation is also taking a measurable toil on the employers of these individuals. They remind us once again about the interconnectivity of our personal relationships and work environments. 

While these high-profile events are being tried in the court of public opinion via social media, national news outlets and the like, thousands of families across the nation, including some of your employees, are dealing with similar situations on a much less public stage.

How are their untold relationship struggles impacting the day-to-day work environment? The answer is clear: the mental anguish, physical ailments and resulting productivity declines are having a direct impact on your company's bottom line.

Is your company prepared to proactively protect the company and provide the right resources for your employees? Don't wait until a domestic situation comes calling at the receptionist's desk. Act now to ensure the relational wellness of your employees and, ultimately, the financial health of your company."
