A very interesting piece from the Institute for HealthCare Consumerism entitled The Impact of Wellness Programs on America’s Workforce highlights statistics showing the efficacy of corporate wellness programs. “The bottom line is that companies can help increase employee satisfaction by focusing on the well-being of their workforce.”
A comprehensive analysis of 42 published studies of worksite health promotion programs showed that companies that implemented an effective wellness program realized significant cost reductions and financial gains, including:
- An average of 28 percent reduction in sick days
- An average of 26 percent reduction in health costs
- An average of 30 percent reduction in workers’ compensation and disability management claims
- An average $5.93 to $1 savings-to-cost ratio.
