Helping Performance-Driven Companies & Executives Use Wellness as a Strategic Advantage to Elevate Their Leadership, Engagement, and Impact

When Your Workforce is Unhealthy and Tired, 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. With that said, one-third of the world is overweight, less than three percent of people are getting the weekly recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise and one in three Americans gets fewer than the recommended minimum of seven hours of sleep nightly according to a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation survey which leads to 11.3 days of lost productivity per employee according to a 2011 American Insomnia Survey.

Combine these above factors and you're getting an lethargic, chronically sick, and overly-stressed workforce which is affecting your companies bottom line and performance. With all of this said, it's time to make wellness a top priority. Here are a few stats about wellness and the effect it has on companies.

  • 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 )
  • Employees with unhealthy diets were 66 percent more likely to report having a loss in productivity (BYU)
  • Sleep-deprived workers cost the U.S. around $411 billion, the U.K. $50 billion, & Australia $66 billion (Rand)
  • And much more!
