Unhealthy & Fatigued 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 productivity due to empoyees not showing up in their best form. 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.

With that said, 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 )
  • And much more!

1. Sleep Your Way to Success: How Sleep Affects Your Performance, Creativity, & Well-Being, Ways to Immediately Improve Your Sleep, Double Your Energy Levels, Leverage Technology to Your Benefit, and Set Yourself Up For A Day of Success Tomorrow (and Beyond)

You most likely know that sleep is important. Yet, the average adult is sleeping 1.5 hours less than the average adult did 100 years ago. But, 100 years ago, we didn’t have the internet, bright lights around every corner & screen, nor demanding work & social environments. These aren’t going anywhere and life isn’t going to slow down to let you sleep.

Brigham and Women's Hospital Sleep Matters Initiative and the National Safety Council estimated using a fatigue calculator that an average sized Fortune 500 company consisting of approximately 52,000 employees spends $80 million on fatigue workers. It's time to change that.

In this training, you’ll be provided with tips and tools backed by science & research to help you get quality sleep in an environment filled with distractions and stress. You’ll learn why you sleep, why it should be the centerpiece of your life, how it affects your professional and personal life along with routines to help you burn fat while supercharging your brain and life.

 4. The Fit Entrepreneur Mindset: How to Rewire Your Brain Against Stress, Achieve A Peak Performing Mentality, Create Winning Habits & Behaviors, and Use Fitness As Your Impetus to Growth & Expansion In All Facets of Your Life

An entrepreneurial mindset isn't just limited to CEO's and founders of startups. In fact, every ambitious professional who wants to make an impact and obtain optimal health would benefit from this mindset. With that said, it's your habits and mindset that serves as your catalyst or your anchor to becoming the best version of yourself.

While the entrepreneurial mindset is important, the only way to reach your potential is to treat your health as an investment, not an expense. Think of your health as the head of an octopus and the other facets of your life as the tentacles. Without the head operating in its peak form, the tentacles won't reach their potential.

In this training, you’ll learn the key steps to transforming from a "survivor & merely existing mindset" to adopting a "thriving & fit entrepreneurial mindset" that will unlock the best version of yourself in all facets of your life.
