Health Promotion Services for the Worksite
We are a nation obsessed with saving time and increasing convenience. It's no wonder that research shows that lifestyle issues such as obesity and inactivity now account for more than 50% of illness in the United States! By taking charge of our personal wellness, we can turn that around - leading healthier, more vibrant, and balanced lives.
Why Wellness in the Workplace?
One reason why wellness is a good fit for the workplace is that, quite simply, many of us spend a good portion of our waking hours at work! The workplace is its own little community, with a captive audience and the opportunity for social, organizational, and environmental support of healthy habits. In addition, because an employer has much to gain from healthier employees, it makes sense for the employer to provide opportunities and resources for wellness, as well as to facilitate the process. It is intuitive that people who feel better are capable of greater accomplishments. In the workplace, this boils down to recognizing that the physical and mental well-being of employees has a direct impact on the quality of service a company can provide and the resulting financial health of the company. Healthy employees cost their companies less in medical expenses and they are at work and at their best more often than their unhealthy counterparts.
Research confirms that Worksite Wellness Programs lead to:
- Lower health care costs
- Reduced absenteeism
- Increased productivity
- Increased employee morale and loyalty
- Increased attraction of new employees - the company is seen as a preferred employer
- Increased retention of employees/decreased turnover
- Positive image as an employer who cares about the well-being of its employees
