From stress reduction, to what to eat during the day to sustain your energy, to setting up your office or cubicle for success, there are many topics and programs that enhance employee well-being.
According to the american Public Health Assoc., NASA, American Journal of Epidemiology in 2013:
Obesity costs the U.S. $147 BILLION annually.
Every dollar spent on workplace wellness decreases medical costs by $3.27 and decreases costs associated with abseenteeism by $2.37 per employee. The employer saves an average of $5.81.
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), premiums are expected to reach $20,000 per employee by the year 2020.
The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine showed in 2013 a wellness program can reduce medical costs by more than 18% per person.
In 2012, Health Policy Brief found that the number of companies with wellness programs doubled, to 70% of all US companies. (Is yours one of them?)
Many studies show that wellness programs can improve work force productivity and morale, as well as individual health and satisfaction.
Pretty amazing statistics, especially when you think of how it affects your staff and your costs. I would love to help by creating a custom Wellness Plan for your company. Together we can come up with a system that works wonders for you and your employees. We offer options such as a “Lunch and Learn” series of short but helpful talks, a group program for anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months (or more), one-on-one sessions, or combinations of all of the above. Please contact me to for a no-charge strategy session, and I will happily give you ideas and costs for how to get started.
