How much can stress cost your business? According to Safe Work Australia, you're likely to be paying your share of the $10 billion bill the country is handed each and every year due to employee stress.

That's around $5,000 for each business in Australia, though its a rather unscientific estimate, with the total amount relying on the number of people you employ, as well as how you manage health issues in the workplace.

When it comes to attracting, retaining and getting the most out of workers, businesses have two paths to take. They can either keep their capital investments low and their place of employment relatively uncompetitive, or spend a little on offering employees an incentive to arrive, stay and work to a high standard.

The new financial year is upon us. While you won't see Sydney's Harbour Bridge lit up by thousands of fireworks like you would on 1 January, the new financial year is just as pivotal as its calendar-based cousin - at least for businesses.

Generations come and go, and with that comes widespread change. Because generational crossovers happen gradually, not all at once, the difference is often seen over time, though that makes it no less substantial.

We recently touched upon the types of illnesses people tend to suffer from during the winter months. When the temperature drops, many people are more at risk when they have existing conditions such as asthma and heart problems.

Even without such issues, winter is a constant battle trying to fight off cold and flu viruses - ones that can put people out of work for days or even weeks.

Many organisations will always strive for the best - the best products, offices, brand image, etc. Achieving this also means having employees who can similarly be called "the best" at what they do.

However, many companies - big and small - are finding it difficult to attract the right talent.

We've focused recently on the power of a corporate health insurance plan in attracting, selecting and ultimately hiring key talent.

In many ways, a company is only as good as its employees, so being able to recruit the best people in a competitive market is a great advantage for a business of any size.

Not every employee is a new hire, however, and focusing on the substantial benefits in the recruitment stage is important, though not the entire picture.

As you look into purchasing health insurance in Australia, you'll notice that not everything is immediately covered. While hospital cover is one of the basic parts of a standard policy, there are extras to think about - such as eye care, physiotherapy and dentistry.

Not everyone understands what a corporate health plan is for - particularly business owners. While some are reaping the rewards of a carefully crafted policy, others have either inherited one from a previous director or simply avoided engaging with the idea altogether.

From Darwin to Melbourne and Brisbane to Perth, hundreds of new businesses open their doors every month. Some will grow slowly, taking on employees over the course of a year or so; others will expand rapidly with a bold recruitment strategy.

There's no shortage of opinion that now is a good time to be a startup in Australia, though these new enterprises have a wealth of important decisions to make. Not least of all is how they will protect the health and wellbeing of their employees, clients and members.
