What is the True Cost of a Corporate Wellness Program

Health and happiness goes hand-in-hand, that is no secret. However, what some may not realize is that health, productivity, and profitability go hand-in hand, as well. In fact, statistics show that employees who eat nutritiously, and exercise are not only healthier, and miss less work...but they are also far more productive than their non-exercising counterparts.

 

A study presented to the American College of Sports Medicine, for instance, found that workers who spent 30-60 minutes at lunch exercising reported an average performance boost of 15 percent. Sixty percent of employees said their time management skills, mental performance and ability to meet deadlines improved on the days they exercised. Workers in the study were less likely to suffer from post-lunch energy dips after exercising and reported improvements in mood. And, that doesn't even touch into long term benefits.

 

If that is enough to make you say hmmm, did you know healthcare costs are expected to increase about 6%-12% per year? That’s an additional $1,000 in annual costs per employee.

 

Companies today are starting corporate wellness programs to control high healthcare costs. On top of that, other benefits that are happier employees, higher retention, more productivity, reduce absenteeism and improved morale.

 

 So how much corporate wellness programs cost?

 

Corporate Wellness Programs are designed to meet the personalized needs of your company but start at $100/year per employee and go up from there.

 

 

 So how can we proof that they are worth the investment?

 

 One Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that the majority of companies – 71 percent - ranked corporate wellness programs as one of the most effective ways to cut costs.

Also 44 percent of companies told Rand last year that they were “overwhelmingly confident” that the programs reduced medical costs.
