In recent years, numerous studies on the effectiveness of Wellness Programs have been conducted and well publicized by many credible organizations. A perfect example is the recent study and report released by Harvard University that found medical costs fall about $3.27 and absentee day costs fall by about $2.73 for every dollar spent on them. This Harvard study and other reports continue to show that the number one method of increasing productivity, reducing absenteeism and cutting overall healthcare costs is implementing wellness advocacy programs in the workplace. After all, we do spend a majority of our waking hours at work, so it makes sense that employees may benefit most by learning about wellness at work. Below are some popular Wellness Programs that employers can implement to increase productivity and reduce healthcare cost for themselves and their employees in the workplace.
-Encourage physical fitness through gym memberships, exercise and nutritional coaching and weight loss programs.
-Promote programs that help people quit smoking.
-Offer on-site health screens and flu shots.
-Newsletter and online resources for healthy living.
