The ROI of Employee Well-Being and the Power of Hope

Research suggests that every $1 invested into employee well-being has an ROI of $4. Depression is the greatest cost to the workforce in turnover, lost productivity, absenteeism, and illness, with hopelessness being the primary symptom of depression and key symptom of anxiety. We have shown through our work that hope is teachable, and hope is a protective factor for anxiety and depression so by increasing hope, we decrease the likelihood of anxiety and depression.

In addition, higher levels of Hope:

  • Lead to a 14% improvement in workplace productivity, outperforming productivity based on the worker's intelligence, optimism, and self-efficacy.
  • Increase employee retention.
  • Reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease.
  • Improve sleep.
  • Protect against mental illness; we also know that existing depression or anxiety does not prevent one from growing their hope levels.

Our workplace activations include the following for hope:

  • Leadership training
  • Management workshops
  • HR seminars
  • Employee events
  • Research
  • Customer activations
  • Workplace Overview video course
  • SHINE Workbook

In addition, we have downloadable materials for you to start activating:

  • Hope Score measures
  • Workplace posters
  • 5-Day Social Media Challenges
  • International Day of Hope Campaigns
The Power of Hope

Hope is not something we are born with; it is a skill we must practice, just like math, science, and history. Yet we can’t practice it unless we are taught. We are here to help make that happen for your organization.
