3 ways to spot a Zombie in your office…and how to bring them back to life!


No Tricks, Just Treats


 1.  The “I’m not engaged” Zombie

Employees who feel undervalued will inevitably have low morale, leading to poor engagement levels. With 22%* of the workforce suffering with very low or low levels of morale, take the time to invest in employee engagement. The 5 Key Areas you need to focus on to improve engagement levels are:

  1. Reward and Recognition
  2. Leadership, Supervision and Culture
  3. Communication
  4. Environment
  5. Wellbeing


2. The “I’m stressed” Zombie

31%* of employees suffer with very high or high levels of stress, so it’s important to ensure that on a company-wide level all possible actions are being taken to reduce work-related stress – with improved work practices and management techniques. It is also important to take smaller, more immediate actions on a daily basis: encourage your staff to make small lifestyle changes and lead by example.


3. The “I’m aching, lousy posture” Zombie

Muscular aches and pains are one of biggest reasons for employees losing their zing. Typically, 37%* of performance is lost to muscular aches and pains. All too often these are caused by poor posture. Reducing neck, back, and shoulder pain not only reduces sickness absence, but also increases performance. Who works well when they’re in pain?


No tricks, just treatments…

The 3 biggest challenges that managers face on a daily basis are: poor employee engagement, high stress, and muscular aches and pains. By providing regular energising massage, all 3 can be treated in one go, reducing stress, muscular aches and pains, and making staff feel valued.

Of course, they could just be a real zombie…in which case, RUN! Run as fast as you can!
