How Employee Health Impacts Productivity [Infographic]

The Pomodoro technique popularized by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s used a simple timer shaped like a tomato (or pomodoro in Italian). The timer would ring periodically as a reminder to take a break, usually after 25 minutes of focused activity. To manage energy levels throughout the workday, modern time-management tools such as Toggl allow employees to set automatic Pomodoro reminders that pop-up at regular intervals on their phone or desktop. But employee health concerns more than just the employee.

Promoting Employee Health

What can employers do to help employees improve their health? Hunger can be a productivity-killing distraction – so skip the sugary sweets and supply healthy snacks instead. Encouraging physical activity is another simple way to help employees keep their minds fresh and focused.

The accompanying infographic includes a look at the connection between health and productivity. It also offers tips on how to stay healthy at work.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
