CORPORATE WELLNESS

With rising health care costs it is important to keep your employeees healthy. Poor health impacts workplace productivity and effectivity.

The total cost of obesity in the U.S. is $13 billion per year. Sixty percent of U.S. adults are overweight or obese. Overweight or obese employees are more likely to develop a variety of health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease and cancer. As a result these employees spend 36% more on health care and spend 77% more on medications.

 

Year-round comprehensive corporate wellness programs have shown savings-to-cost ratios of greater than $3 saved for each $1 invested. Documented savings are observed in medical costs, absenteeism, worker’s compensation costs, short-term disability, and increased productivity.
