Why corporate wellness?
Corporate wellness programs are an investment in your company’s most important resource – your workers. Studies have shown that workers are more likely to be on the job and performing well when they feel well – both physically and mentally. Workers are also more likely to be attracted to, remain with, and appreciate an employer that values them. Corporate Wellness Programs improve company productivity by:
- Attracting superior quality staff
- Reducing the rate of absenteeism and productivity losses
- Enhancing on-the-job performance and decision making
- Minimizing turnover by improving worker’s morale
In addition to improved productivity, Corporate Wellness Programs have been shown to be an effective tool in slowing the growth of healthcare costs.
Selecting healthier options may reduce a worker’s chances of suffering from illness. Less illness means businesses can lower health plan utilization, thereby lowering health benefit costs and consequently increasing earnings. While health cost savings from corporate wellness programs may be less evident than productivity gains, research shows that medically high-risk workers are medically high-cost workers since they use additional healthcare benefits and generate higher claims.
On average, for every $1.00 you invest, you’ll save $4.00 to $6.00 in healthcare costs.
