We Help Employers Reduce Healthcare Costs And Boost Productivity in the Workplace
The most successful companies treat employees as their most valuable asset. However, this value can be diminished by health problems that affect an employee’s overall well-being. Even minor health problems, which can be traced to a lack of exercise or poor food choices, can lead to increased insurance premiums and missed work. Many employers have felt the impact of decreased output coupled with higher healthcare costs. In today’s ‘thin-margins’ marketplace, this double burden can become a serious problem.
Prevention is a key component to breaking this cycle!
To get out in front of the healthcare issue, corporations have started to offer wellness programs, which are a win-win solution for both employers and employees. Employees who participate in these programs see their morale and engagement improving along with their health. Employers can win back their competitive edge by increasing productivity and retaining their most productive employees longer.
In addition, companies who implement these sorts of programs are demonstrating investment in their employees. By creating a culture of wellness, corporations are effectively becoming stakeholders in their employees. This creates a circle of trust, so that employees become stakeholders in the company. Employees who know they are valued have higher levels of loyalty and commitment; they take pride in doing their best because they want to offer a good return on the company’s investment.
An investment in a corporate wellness program is a short-term investment that reaps long-term dividends.
America’s healthcare crisis has been a hot news topic in recent years. Studies show that as much as 75% of the total U.S. spending on healthcare is due to lifestyle-related diseases. 75% is an astonishingly high number, since all lifestyle-related illness is preventable.
If people are not making the connection between lifestyle choices and resulting illness, this points to a simple lack of information and/or knowledge about where to begin. By implementing a corporate wellness program, you can provide your employees with the tools they need to succeed and a supportive environment to vastly improve their odds of success.
