Corporate Wellness for Airlines:

 

Why choose Innov8nutrition?

I have a wealth of experience in the aviation industry after working for one of the largest UK based airlines in a dual role of international cabin crew and qualified corporate trainer (CIPD).  I have had an insider view of the health challenges air crew are faced with due to the unique nature of the role. I understand how to build rapports quickly and effectively lead your staff to better health. I focus on using easy steps to educate, encourage and inspire my clients to implement simple changes to enhance their health and wellbeing and support both their individual and your business goals.

Investing in your crew, not only benefits them but also yields tangible results for your airline financially and has a direct effect on the customers’ experience.

Why Invest in the Health of Your People?

Reduced absenteeism, improved productivity, enhanced employee loyalty, and an exceptional customer experience are all outcomes of a healthy, satisfied workforce. The more you look after your workforce the more they will be willing to go the extra mile when things don’t go quite to plan.

According to research published in 2022 by the Lived Experience and Wellbeing Project – a Trinity College Dublin hub that studies aviation worker wellbeing – only 47% said their mental health was very good or good, and 77% cited Covid-19 as having a negative impact on their wellbeing.

You are not only investing in you crew’s health and wellbeing it is an investment in the overall success and sustainability of your airline. Employee well-being goes beyond physical health and encompasses mental, emotional, and social aspects. By investing in preventive measures, such as mental health support and wellness coaching, airlines can proactively address potential health issues and promote overall well-being.

Here are some ways in which investing in your crew’s health can improve the relationship with your frontline staff and enhance the customer’s perception of your airline:

  1. Increased loyalty and engagement: When employers invest in their employees’ health, it demonstrates a genuine concern for their well-being. This fosters a sense of loyalty and commitment among employees. When employees feel valued, supported, and cared for, they are more likely to be engaged, motivated, and productive in their work. This can translate into better customer service, as employees who feel appreciated are more likely to go the extra mile to satisfy customer needs.
  2. Enhanced morale and job satisfaction: A focus on employee health promotes a positive work environment and a culture of well-being. When employees have access to wellness programmes, healthcare benefits, and a supportive work-life balance, their morale and job satisfaction increase. This can lead to higher retention rates, reducing turnover costs for employers.
  3. Improved productivity and performance: Investing in your employees’ health can have a direct impact on their physical and mental well-being. When employees are healthy, they have fewer absences, reduced presenteeism (working while unwell), and there is less disruption to the operation. Healthy employees are more energised, focused, and able to perform their tasks efficiently. This can lead to increased productivity, which can positively influence the overall customer experience through timely and effective service delivery.
  4. Positive brand image and reputation: Companies that prioritise employee health are often viewed as socially responsible and caring. Customers are more likely to perceive such companies positively and feel confident about their products or services. This can lead to increased customer loyalty, repeat business, and positive word-of-mouth referrals. Customers appreciate organisations that prioritise employee well-being and are more inclined to support businesses that align with their values.
  5. Consistent and reliable service: When your crew are healthy and well-supported, they are less prone to burnout and fatigue. This enables them to consistently deliver high-quality service to customers. Investing in crew health can help ensure a stable workforce, reduce turnover, and minimise disruptions in service. Customers value reliability and consistency, and a satisfied and healthy employee base contributes to that.

Show You Care!

Many airlines are already reaping the benefits of investing in a corporate wellness programme and are leading the way in best practice and inspirational leadership.
