Human performance is a holistic view of well-being that encompasses the entire employee.

It takes into account health and fitness, growth and development, money and prosperity, contribution and sustainability, pushing each employee to be a healthier, mindful and high performing person.

If you think about it, human performance affects literally everything. Especially your business and your health care costs.

If fact, managing health care costs is nearly $15,000 per employee (Source: National Business Group on Health ®). Employees with metabolic syndrome (or a cluster of conditions that occur together, which may increase risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes) have a greater PMPM cost that those who don’t: $626 PMPM/$367 PMPM.

Creating a culture of better health is now a priority for many employers. So much so that 92% of large mid-market employers consider human performance and well-being part of their overall business strategy (Source: Fidelity & National Business Group on Health, 2018).

Bottom Line

In 2014, Mercy Health established their well-being program to control health costs and engage employees in an outcomes-based well-being program that tracks metabolic syndrome-related risk factors. Before implementing, each region had their own employee well-being programs which varied in design and execution. Program metrics and measurable outcomes were created to maximize efficiency and effectiveness across the region, as well as drive results and continued program engagement.

Since the launch in 2014, Mercy Health has experienced:

  • Increased engagement in the wellness program was associated with lower health care claims
  • Higher scores on the well-being assessment, which indicate higher perceived well-being, resulting in fewer health claims

Mercy Health added two other wellness-related programs to their offerings. Since 2014, the company has seen an 18% Metabolic Syndrome reversal through the Naturally Slim® program. And, since introducing  Work/Life Services in 2017, they’ve seen Employee Assistance Program use increase by 54%.

Mercy Health has seen a negative PMPY claims trend since their well-being program was introduced in 2014.  Additionally, there has been a 17% decrease in average health care opportunities over three years, driving multi-million dollar savings in 2018 alone.

The annual per-employee cost of employer sponsored health care benefits is $15,000
