American employers lose over 300 billion dollars of productivity annually due to illness, sick days, absenteeism and sub-par performance (“presenteeism”).
How much did your company lose last year?
To get the most out of your business, you MUST get the most out of your people. In a nutshell, the healthier your employees are, the more and better work they can do for you, and the better their quality of life will be. The recognition of this truism leads to a business practice generally known as “corporate wellness”.
Now, we are not going to bore you on a long lecture on how a wellness program can benefit your company…we are sure you already know why…
Unfortunately, however, most so-called “wellness” programs consist merely of health screenings, brochures, and monthly newsletters that employees wouldn’t even bother to read. Their main focus is on the awareness, identification, and treatment of chronic health issues such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, etc.
While this is certainly beneficial to the employee, the main problem with this is that these issues are ALREADY costing the company thousands of dollars in health care costs.
The REAL problem, which is being completely overlooked here, is WHY your employees have these conditions in the first place.
Let’s examine this study on from the JAMA on the “Actual causes of death in the United States”…
Yes, you read that right…. Movement Deficit Disorder (MDD). Are you kidding me? Talk about beating around the bush. WE ARE AN INCREDIBLY LAZY, INACTIVE SOCIETY. This sedentary lifestyle simply cripples the American work force and right now it is crippling your company! Though MDD may not be as deadly as cancer in the short-term, it leads to a slow, steady decay the human mind and body that leads to a host of diminishing health factors that eventually leads people to early graves (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, degenerative muscles and / or joints, etc.)
According to the Institute for Health and Productivity Management (IHPM), the focus on health care alone has failed and this is clearly supported in the chart above, as health care delivery is the least important factor in longevity.
If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be now! Employers must seek to modify the behavior of their employees if they want to be a competitive force in today’s marketplace. This is what our corporate health and fitness program WILL do for your company!
