Why Worksite Wellness?

We know your employees are your most valuable resource. When employees are healthy, health care costs decrease, and workplace productivity increases.

According to the CDC, “Maintaining a healthier workforce can lower direct costs such as insurance premiums and worker’s compensation claims. It will also positively impact many indirect costs such as absenteeism and worker productivity.”

Workers participating in a "comprehensive" workplace promotion program had a one-fifth reduction in absenteeism during the first year, reports a study in the April 2015 Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, official publication of the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM).

Helping to improve the wellness of your employees is one of the best long-term strategies for reducing your company's health care costs.
