Health and Economic Benefits in the Workplace

Employees are often constrained by lack of time and/or high treatment costs and therefore do not get access to the health care treatments that they need. As a result, many corporations help solve this dilemma by providing specialized health and wellness services on-site. In turn, employers benefit from increased employee productivity, quality of output, and an overall increase in the quality of the work atmosphere. They can also reduce insurance claims filed which can result in lower premium costs. This in turn boosts employee morale who then report high job satisfaction and feel increased loyalty to the company and consequently, longevity is increased.

This is not a new idea – it has been tried, tested and found to be successful in many instances.

About 90 percent of all visits to primary care providers are related to stress, and over half of lost workdays have been shown to be stress-related. Up to 80 percent of industrial accidents in workplaces or on job sites are due to stress. Additionally, 14 percent of workers report that it was stress that caused them to change jobs or quit a job.

Employee stress, pain and illness cost companies untold amounts of lost revenues each year. However, when workers are healthy, they are less likely to take sick days or become injured on the job. They are also far more likely to be productive, focused and effective at work.
