Why Companies That Invest in Women Have a Competitive Advantage

Updated: Aug 14



Dear Clients, Colleagues, and Friends,


It is my pleasure to present Acheloa Wellness's recent white paper, Why Investing in the Female Workforce Now is Crucial for Organizations. Our findings discuss two pertinent topics that are significantly impacting the workforce today: hardworking women and burnout.


The thesis of this paper is derived from hundreds of interviews with both women and men, leaders and staff, organization heads and thought leaders, and beyond. Our findings show why organizations that invest in women have a competitive advantage.


I encourage you to read this white paper and share it with your community, especially those in your company who are passionate about employee retention, diversity, and inclusion, as well as overall sustainability of human capital. It can spark healthy discussions about the issues facing women and employees today. It may also encourage a review of your company's policies and program effectiveness.


This white paper also highlights how our organization is working to improve workplace conditions as well as productivity. Acheloa Wellness empowers individuals, employees, and employers with the tools and techniques to break through the effects of workplace stress and burnout.


In taking a stand for workplace transformation, Acheloa Wellness is offering organizations an incredible opportunity to immediately engage employees and breakthrough stress in a meaningful way. To learn how you can bring meaningful impact to your organization, email our team at hello@acheloawellness.com to schedule a complementary capabilities briefing or industry insights session.

How you can gain a competitive advantage in your office?

We can all do something to bring greater support to our women, BIPOC and other less-represented peers in the workplace. It starts with a small action, and it starts with you:

  1. Share this article with a key stakeholder who can help amplify your message. Consider your boss, HR or ERG (employee resource group) leaders. They often have a budget and want to spend it on ways to improve corporate culture. See how you bring thought leaders like Acheloa Wellness into your office to address and provide tools to manage employee overwhelm.

  2. Research your EAP (employee assistance program) and see what resources are available to you. Especially if you're at a big corporation, you'd be amazed at all the resources available to you, such as free therapy, helpful app to support sleep and wellbeing, etc.

  3. Do what you can to reduce workplace stress for yourself and your peers. For example, don't encourage emails after hours. Set healthy boundaries and allow your team to do the same, use your allotted vacation time, etc.


Invest in Women.

At this point, we know the importance of advocating and investing in women, but it can feel daunting to figure out where to begin. Especially if you're in a male-dominated office. If you're wondering how you can bring more of this positive energy for work diversity and inclusiveness to your team, reach out to me and let's have a quick chat to see how I can help you and your office.
