As employers struggle to control ever-increasing health care costs and manage the declining health of their employees, workplace wellness strategies become an integral part of the solution. These initiatives not only impact health care costs, but also increase employee productivity and loyalty, decrease absenteeism, and positively influence recruitment and retention initiatives.
It’s no secret that employees with more risk factors, including being overweight, smoking and having diabetes, cost more to insure than their healthier counterparts. An employee wellness program can offset that by increasing organizational awareness about health, and motivating high-risk employees to make lifestyle changes that will improve their quality of life and lower their health care costs.
