An investment in your company's most important resource
Employee wellness programs are an essential benefit component in large and small businesses alike. Research studies related to wellness indicate that Americans who take good care of themselves and make healthy lifestyle choices are healthier, happier, more productive, miss work less, and have lower healthcare costs. Wellness is much more than reducing illness and/or disease, it is a proactive approach designed to improve employee engagement and create a healthy workforce.
Invest in your company’s most important resource – your workers.
Employee wellness programs have been shown to reduce absenteeism, staff member turnover rates, and healthcare costs. It is a key component of a company’s success. Studies have shown that workers are more likely to be on the job and performing well when they are in feeling well both physically and mentally. Workers are also more likely to be attracted to, remain with, and appreciate a employer that values them.
Corporate wellness programs improve company productivity by:
- Attracting superior quality staff
- Reducing the rate of absenteeism and time lost
- Enhancing on-the-job time utilization and decision making
- Improving worker morale, which in turn lowers turnover
Corporate wellness programs effectively slow the growth of health care costs.
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 as they use additional health care and generate higher claims.
Wellness programs are often implemented with the assistance of a third-party administrator or medical insurance company, however employers can benefit greatly with a self-administered approach in the initial phases of a wellness program. Various components of a wellness program include a Health Risk Assessment, Biometric Screening, health coaching, smoking cessation programs and stress management tools.
