When Your Team is Unhealthy, Stressed, and Fatigued—It Costs You Money. Let's Talk About How to Fix It

Our health is like the head of an octopus and the other facets of life are the tentacles. If the head isn’t operating optimally, the tentacles won’t perform optimally.

Prioritizing health and wellness allows an individual to move at a faster pace in life and truly maximize their personal performance. When an individual understands and practices a healthier lifestyle, it positively impacts your company’s bottom line. The more you integrate wellness into your organization's DNA, the better every system and department flows, which leads to better customer service and experiences.

With that said, there is some research to back up the precise connection between health and organizational performance.

  • Boost your employees immune system (wellness initiatives leads to an average 27 percent reduction in sick leave absenteeism according to the American Journal of Health Promotion)

  • Dramatically reduce the amount of money your company spends on healthcare costs (26 percent reduction in costs according to the American Journal of Health Promotion)

  • Boost your employees everyday performance (an 8 percent increase in each employee’s productivity according to a 2005 National Business Group on Health report)

  • Create happy employees (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)

  • No more disgruntled employees (up to a 67 percent increase in employee morale and engagement toward your companies mission and goals according to a 2015 study by The Economist Intelligence Unit & Humana)

  • Keep your employees from quitting and running away (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)

  • Make a smart investment on the future of your company (for every $1 spent = an ROI of $5.81 according to the American Journal of Health Promotion )

  • Stop letting nutrition sabotage employees performance (employees with unhealthy diets were 66 percent more likely to report having a loss in productivity (BYU)

  • Leverage personalized nutrition for a healthier team (a 33% improvement in weight loss occurred when individuals were following a genetically appropriate diet according to a 2014 study appearing in the European Society of Human Genetics)

  • Fatigue employees are draining your bottom line (sleep-deprived workers cost the U.S. around $411 billion, the U.K. $50 billion, & Australia $66 billion—Rand)

  • Compromised employees are expensive (for every employee, companies are losing $1,400 per employee due to fatigue according to a Sleep Matters Initiative at Brigham Health for the National Safety Council—NSC)

  • Develop a workforce that is laser-focused (Gallup estimates 17.2% of the U.S. workforce is actively disengaged which costs an organization approximately $3,400 for every $10,000 of salary—or 34%)

  • Cookie-cutter and generic trainings are doing more harm than good (ineffective training and uninspiring content leading to skill gaps, disengagement, and employee turnover costs businesses a yearly loss of $13,500 per employee—McKinsey & Company, Gallup, Center for American Progress)

Building a superhuman organization starts by building a strong foundation and educating your employees on the key principles and habits for optimal health and performance—and that's where we come in.

High Performance Trainings

For entrepreneurs, it's not just about physical fitness. Your cognitive fitness matters equally. In this training, you'll learn how to maximize the 10 areas of cognitive fitness so you can turn your brain into a lethal weapon that helps you catapult your performance and income.
