Benefits of Corporate Wellness Programs
The Verdict is In
As professional demands increase – personal time allocated for self-care is reduced – resulting in a negative impact on employee productivity, morale, and happiness. We strive to create a space within the workday for professionals to move, refuel, and release stress.
What is the problem?
Stress, chronic disease, and obesity are the top health problems facing Americans today. These conditions contribute to a host of debilitating physical and mental illnesses. As healthcare costs increase, the financial toll of chronic illness is growing exponentially. In addition to increased healthcare costs, stress-induced illnesses and exhaustion are the leading contributors to productivity loss.
There is a solution!
Corporate wellness programs have transitioned from a luxury amenity to a strategic necessity. Decades of studies have proven workplace wellness programs offer numerous, quantifiable benefits to both employers and employees.
Companies can achieve significant savings on health insurance and medical care by supporting employees on their personal journey to stay healthy, reduce risk factors for illness and injury, and generally improve their health and well-being. Companies also benefit from less time lost to sickness, resulting in a boost to attendance and performance. Corporate wellness programs add value to the total employee package, providing incentives to both current and future employees, increasing staff retention, and enabling the company to remain competitive within the labor market.
Wellness programs can reduce the average sick leave, health plan, and workers’ comp and disability insurance costs by 25%.
