Providing information on nutrition and health to your employees is a major step towards increasing productivity and reducing healthcare costs. Investing in your employees by providing education on how they can achieve good health has several benefits:
Reduced sickness absenteeism
Better stress management
Increased mental focus
Boosts company morale
Companies worldwide are incorporating wellness programs into the workplace. The primary reason is that employee lifestyle accounts for the majority of health care claims costs. Recent research has shown that approximately 87% of health care claims costs are due to an individual’s lifestyle (1). Furthermore, studies show that companies who implement a health and wellness program report a reduction in claims made per employee. Every $1 invested in employee wellness programs yield roughly $4 savings through reduced sick days (2), with added benefits of higher productivity and decreased health costs.
