A Challenge for 2014: Linking Wellness to the Bottom Line?
We know organizations and businesses are facing tough challenges:
- The US is spending 147 billion to treat obesity, 116 billion to treat diabetes and billions more to treat cardio vascular disease and many types of cancer.
- US employers are losing a total of 225.8 billion annually in productivity losses.
- Indirect costs of poor health can be two to three times the cost of direct medical expenses.
- Workers are experiencing more daily stress in the race to keep their jobs, deal with their own economy, manage a work life/family life balance including aging parents, school age children and their own personal health.
Employees are looking for balance in their lives and are looking for more ways to take responsibility for their health at home and at work.
A recent survey notes as much as 77% of employees feel “health and wellness programs positively impact their culture at work”and, “87% of employees consider health and wellness offerings when choosing an employer. Great arguments to take the challenge for linking wellness to the health of your bottom line.
