General Information on Corporate Wellness
Did you know that an estimated 75% of healthcare costs in the United States are preventable? US loses more $32 BILLION a year because of premature illness associated with cardiovascular diseases like high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes, states the American Heart Association.
“Increasingly, there is clear evidence that the major chronic conditions that account for so much of the morbidity and mortality in the U.S., and the enormous direct and indirect costs associated with them, in large part are preventable - and that to a considerable degree they stem from, and are exacerbated by, individual behaviors… As Americans see health care expenditures continue to increase, it is important to focus on strategies that reduce the prevalence and cost of preventable diseases.”
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
- Prevention Makes Common Cents
What does this mean for your business? Employers are becoming more aware that overweight and obesity, lack of physical activity, and tobacco use are adversely affecting the health and productivity of their employees and ultimately, the businesses' bottom line. As a result, innovative employers are providing their employees with a variety of work-site-based health promotion and disease prevention programs. These programs have been shown to improve employee health, increase productivity and yield a significant return on investment for the employer.
A recent review of health promotion and disease management programs found a significant return on investment for these programs, with benefit-to-cost ratios, ranging from $1.49 to $4.91 (median of $3.14) in benefits for every dollar spent on the program. (U.S. Dep't of Health and Human Services)
