Wellness

Rising medical costs and declining health status of employees continues to move wellness to the forefront of objectives for companies. If we do no take action and implement wellness into the workplace to help prevent the further progression of unhealthy behaviors and unhealthy employees, it is estimated that health care costs will increase 6-12 % per year.

For every 100 employees:

  • 60 are sedentary
  • 25 smoke
  • 10 have diabetes
  • 38 are overweight
  • 12 are asthmatic
  • 50 have high cholesterol
  • 24 have high blood pressure
  • 44 suffer from stress

Consider this:  How will your company continue to grow and be competitive in your industry if the health of your workforce continues to decline?  If your workforce is unhealthy, there are a number of consequences which impact your business and financial bottom line including:

  • there will be less productivity in your company
  • a decline in the quality of work supplied by your employees
  • increased absenteeism rates
  • higher stress levels
  • lower morale
