A recent study by American Sports Data found that on average, frequent exercisers were absent form work only 2.11 days a year, compared to 3.06 for inactive individuals. Researchers believe that exercise helps boost the immune system and increases strength, thus resulting in fewer incidences of absenteeism due to sickness or injury.
Although not as easy to measure as a reduction in healthcare costs, improved employee productivity can have a considerable impact on an organization and its profitability. Corporate wellness programs tend to improve overall morale, as participating associates feel better about themselves and their company. Such programs lead to a more energetic, positive and productive workplace, thus strengthening a company and helping to position it for success.
Healthy associates are happy associates; and happy workers almost always turn out to be faithful, long term employees. So the healthier and happier the work force, the less a company has to spend on hiring and training new personnel. The basis for creating a healthy work force, of course, is a well-conceived and well-promoted corporate wellness program.
The most obvious benefit of a corporate wellness program is that it allows companies to reduce their overall healthcare costs, in part by reducing the number of medical claims that they have to field each year. The U.S. Surgeon General reports that 75% of all illness can be attributed to lifestyle related causes, and that 53% of American’s population is “inactive”. What both the business community and the population-at-large need, of course, is exercise. Thousands of studies confirm that regular exercise has a protective effect against a wide variety of illness and disease. It only stands to reason that the more a business can help its associates avoid illness and disease, the more it can save on healthcare costs each year.
