The costs of health care have been rising at a constant pace for several years. A substantial amount of money spent in the health care system treats expensive illnesses. In an effort to optimize employee health, a Corporate Wellness Program can reduce avoidable health care utilization and enhance work performance.
Benefits of corporate wellness programs are obvious and scientifically proven. An effective, well-planned wellness program is guaranteed to improve the health and well-being of employees, increase productivity and the overall morale in the company.
Scientific data shows that companies that invest in wellness programs see huge returns on their investments in the form of increased productivity, decreased health-related expenses, increased employee morale and loyalty. Here are some statistics from research findings:
- Savings of $3.48 in reduced health care costs per dollar invested;
- Savings of $5.82 in lower rates of absenteeism costs per dollar invested;
- Return on Investment of at least $3 to $8 per dollar invested within five years of program implementation;
The impact of a Corporate Wellness Program goes beyond decreased healthcare costs and Return On Investment. A corporate wellness Program can affect productivity, absenteeism, morale, recruitment, success, turnover, and medical care costs.
