There is compelling evidence that a sizeable portion of the billions of dollars currently spent by employers on health-related costs is manageable by means of quality Corporate Wellness. These benefits have been confirmed through extensive research that shows beyond a doubt: good health is good business.
Research over the past 3-4 decades clearly demonstrates that:
In a healthy company, over 50 % of employees have between zero and one risk factor, resulting in lower costs for the employer. However, too often over 50% of employees have two to three risk factors resulting in higher employer costs.
An effective workplace wellness strategy is to stop the migration of people to higher risk and keep low risk people at low risk. As previously demonstrated, having the majority of employees in low risk categories cost the organization significantly less in terms of health care costs and results in a more productive and engaged workforce.
Where does your organization fit? Does it fit the pattern of a healthy company?
