How Employee Wellness Programs Help Your Bottom Line
Wellness Programs Protect Your Investment in Your Workforce
Savvy employers understand that capital investments involve not just the initial cost of acquisition, but an ongoing investment in maintaining the productivity of facilities or equipment.
Wellness is an investment in human capital. Employees are more likely to be on the job and performing well when they are in optimal or improved physical and psychological health.
Scientific research supports the association between a company's productivity and the health of its employees:
- A review of 73 published studies of worksite health promotion programs shows an average $3.50-to-$1 savings-to-cost ratio in reduced absenteeism and health care cost
- A meta-review of 42 published studies of worksite health promotion programs shows:
- Average 28% reduction in sick leave absenteeism
- Average 26% reduction in health costs
- Average 30% reduction in workers' compensation and disability management claims costs
- Average $5.93-to-$1 savings-to-cost ratio
Wellness programs protect both the health of your employees and the health of your company's bottom line.
