The What, Why, & When Of Wellness In The Workplace!

If you are a business owner, then you are aware of the high costs associated with keeping your employees healthy and happy. Health care costs are currently at an all time high! The only way to reverse this trend is to encourage a healthy lifestyle, and practice workplace wellness. If your employees feel better, they will not need to make as many trips to the doctor’s office! Consequently, you will not have to take as much money out of your business to put towards health coverage.

Simple lifestyle modifications can save you a whopping 25% on your health care costs! Here are a few other ways workplace wellness will help you, your business, and your employees:

  • Many insurance carriers look at risk factors for chronic diseases when they insure an individual. If your employees are able to get their weight down, quit smoking, and begin an exercise regimen, then they will cost less to insure.
  • When your employees are physically healthy, they will be less likely to take falls, or become sick with illnesses. This means you are less likely to be stuck paying high workers’ compensation and disability expenses.
  • When your employees are healthy, they are less likely to take sick days, and miss work. This means your workers will be more productive, and your business will be more efficient as a whole.
  • When employees feel good, the office morale will be through the roof. Workers will be happy, and that will help you to retain your best employees.
