The health and vitality of your employees are often what drive business success. Without whole-body wellness, employees might struggle to work hard, remain focused and motivated, be productive, stay safe and keep their morale up.
There’s a lot at stake when your employees’ health and well-being suffer. That’s why we partner with businesses to offer services that focus on whole-body health. It’s a win-win for you and your greatest asset: your employees.
Wellness programs and preventive care are essential to keeping your employees healthy and satisfied. When employees see you care about their health and well-being, they’re more likely to have higher overall job satisfaction. In a recent article, Forbes reported that 96% of employees indicated that when employers show empathy for employees’ needs, it can increase retention.
According to a recent study, poor health affects the individual but can cost employers, too — as much as $575 billion and 1.5 million days of lost productivity.
One of the most effective ways to control health care costs is to offer an on-site health and wellness program. When you invest in these types of services, it positively impacts all employees, keeping healthy workers healthy and in the low-risk category. And it helps employees in the high-risk category who may suffer from issues such as weight problems, smoking or diabetes. They’re motivated to make a change and improve their quality of life.
