Unhealthy Employees Are Costing You A Ton of Money

Despite living in a world with an abundance of information, one-third of the world is overweight along with a plethora of chronic diseases rising (chronic diseases cost 4x more in health insurance expenses than healthy individuals). Less than 3 percent of people are getting the weekly recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise.

One in three Americans gets fewer than the recommended minimum of seven hours of sleep nightly according to a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation survey. This costs each worker 11.3 days of productivity according to a 2011 American Insomnia Survey.

Combine these above factors and you're getting a anxious, depressed, and overly-stressed workforce. Each year, up to $227 billion is lost in the U.S. in employee absenteeism or presenteeism. According to the European commission, the costs alone of work-related stress in the EU is around $20 billion.

This is a worldwide problem that is affecting your companies productivity, culture, engagement, and bottom line.

One of the best ways to take control of these issues along with standing out in your industry is to start a wellness initiative. According to a study by Humana and the National Small Business Association, 93 percent of small businesses believe employee health is important to their companies bottom line. Yet, just 22 percent are currently offering a wellness program.

Getting up off your bottom & implementing some form of a wellness initiative is good for your bottom line through a myriad of factors such as:

  • Reduced sick leave absenteeism (an average 27 percent reduction according to the American Journal of Health Promotion)
  • Reduced healthcare costs (a 26 percent reduction in costs according to the American Journal of Health Promotion)
  • Improved productivity (an 8 percent increase in each employee’s productivity according to a 2005 National Business Group on Health report)
  • Less work-related stress (up to 12 percent less likely to experience health issues from work-related stress according to a 2015 study by The Economist Intelligence Unit & Humana)
  • Increased employee morale and engagement in your companies mission and goals (up to 67 percent according to a 2015 study by The Economist Intelligence Unit & Humana)
  • Improved employee retention (45 percent of employees agree that an employer-sponsored wellness program would encourage them to stay in their current position reported in a Principal Financial Well-Being Index in 2013)
  • A great return on investment (for every $1 spent = an ROI of $5.81 according to the American Journal of Health Promotion )

The link between your companies success and improved employee health and well-being is something that can take your company culture to a whole new level—and make you unmistakable in your specific industry.

Administering a simple 10-minute health risk assessment to inform people that smoking, processed foods, and not exercising is bad isn't good enough—undoing years of poor healthy habits isn't solved with a questionnaire.

Directing them to a website with wellness plans isn't enough nor is instituting a short term "biggest loser" style challenge the solution (remember the goal is long-term change).

To build a healthier company culture starts from the top. It starts with the company leaders integrating health and wellness into their companies overall vision and purpose.

Building a healthier company culture starts by building a solid foundation and educating everyone on the key principles and habits that lead to a healthier lifestyle—and that's where I come in.

The core mission of my consulting program is to make your company healthier—physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.
