There are many benefits to Workplace Wellness, including greater productivity, higher morale and lower company healthcare costs. By encouraging healthier lifestyles, employees will work more diligently and miss fewer days of work due to illness.
Because of reasons like those mentioned above, more and more employers are beginning to invest in their workers’ health – experimenting with wellness programs to cut health care costs and increase productivity. A recent article published in the Washington Post cited that “A survey of large companies released in August by the National Business Group on Health found that 61% of firms said they found such initiatives to be among the three most effective tactics for keeping a lid on health care costs. And among firms that offered financial rewards for healthy behavior, the median compensation will rise to $450 in 2013, up from $300 in 2012.
