Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer in the United States of both men & women and leading cause of permanent disability
On average, employers spend an estimated $18,000 per employee per year for all costs related to health and lost productivity due to illness according to the CDC. Establishing a wellness program in your workplace not only keeps your employees healthier – it also means substantial savings for your company.
Studies show that chronic lifestyle-related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease are on the rise, leading to greater absenteeism and reduced productivity at work and increased health-care coverage costs for employers. However, employers can save money on health-care expenses simply by empowering employees to maintain their own health – and in-office health events are an excellent way to achieve this. In fact, research shows that companies who offer corporate wellness programs find claims costs reduced by 28%, hospital admissions declined by 62% and disability costs reduced by 34%. And individual corporations report a return on investment as high as $2.51 to $4.73 for every dollar spent on a workplace wellness program.
