Looking to cultivate happy, healthy employees? This program will help your employees eat better, manage stress, and make positive lifestyle changes that will improve morale and productivity in the workplace. According to the Small Business Administration, more than 80 percent of businesses with 50 or more employees have adopted some form of health and wellness program. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 – 90 percent of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Managing the health of your employees is a wise decision.
In addition to increasing employee morale, reducing absenteeism, and improving health outcomes, it also benefits your bottom line by keeping productivity up and costs down. The Partnership for Prevention (a non-profit organization with membership from business, the health sector, and government) has cited studies showing that based on a review of 73 published studies, work site health promotion programs produce an average $3.50-to-$1 (savings-to-cost) ratio in reduced absenteeism and health care cost.
Evidence from big and small companies who have adopted wellness programs also shows significant savings in insurance premiums and time lost due to illness induced by stress. Employees are healthier, happier and more productive. These workshops are designed to be informative and interactive, build a sense of community in the workplace and most of all — are fun!
