1. Why wellness?
There is no question about the positive financial impact of a proactive workplace wellness program. Organizations looking for a new approach to stem the tide of rising health costs now recognize the role consumers must play to achieve an effective resolution.
The economic burden of illness and unhealthy lifestyles is well-documented – some studies cite prevention efforts can reduce health care costs by more than 30%. In addition, cost of disability – as much as 12% of the average payroll – can also be significantly reduced with wellness programs.
But it is not only corporate giants who achieve such savings. Companies of all sizes are discovering savings in administrative costs, absenteeism, risk factors and the overall number of health-related claims.
Regardless of your organization’s size, these startling statistics are a powerful incentive to establish a wellness program in the workplace. Still not convinced?
