Health care costs are a major expense for your company so it is crucial to keep your employees healthy. Implementing a Corporate Wellness Program can be the tool you need to achieve that goal. Many programs can benefit the employee as well as the employer.
The major benefits of implementing a wellness program are, it will increase productivity, reduce absenteeism, boost morale, recruitment success, lower turnover, and greatly reduce medical costs.
Employees will benefit by improved health, weight reduction, stop smoking, increased stamina, lower levels of stress, increased well-being, self-image and self-esteem.
Corporate wellness includes exercise programs, nutritional advice with clean eating education and hypnotherapy. The increase in productivity is actually a larger benefit than the reduced insurance costs.
According to an article in Harvard Business magazine, Johnson & Johnson estimated that wellness programs have saved the company $250 million on health care costs over the past decade. With tax incentives and grants available under recent federal health care legislation, U.S. companies can use wellness programs to chip away at their enormous health care costs.
Both small offices and large corporations can benefit from a variety of programs.
Exercise programs and nutritional guidance can improve health, lower risk of diabetes, lower body fat,increase cardiovascular capability and improve over-all well being. Alternative methods, such as Hypnotherapy can aid in weight loss, smoking cessation, stress reduction, increase sales and personal development and improving sleep patterns. Since corporate wellness programs can lead to healthier employees, wellness programs can lower the company cost for their employees’ health care. In addition, companies with a wellness program experience reduced disability costs and health care premiums, and employees tend to file fewer health insurance claims.
