Boost productivity, lower absenteeism rate and cut your company costs with my Corporate Wellness Program!

With the current economic landscape causing higher health care costs, employee wellness is of upmost importance.

For many companies, health costs use up 50 percent or more of their corporate profits.  In fact, the indirect costs of poor health, such as an absence from work and reduced work productivity, can result in two or three times the amount of direct medical costs.

A recent report from the National Business Group on Health and Towers Watson found that organizations with strong wellness programs had lower rates of obesity than “low-effectiveness” companies, and had lower unplanned absence rates (3.3 vs. 4.0 days/year).

Meta analysis of 42 corporate wellness studies found a 25% reduction in absenteeism and sick leave, a 25% reduction in health costs, and a 32% reduction in workers compensation and disability costs.

The 2012 Aflac WorkForces Report, an online survey of more than 1,800 benefits decision-makers and more than 6,100 U.S. workers showed that compared to workers who are not offered wellness programs, employees who are offered wellness programs and participate in them are more likely to have a higher level of job satisfaction, feel happier with their employer, and be more satisfied with their overall benefits

Despite the benefits of wellness program, Irish companies rarely offer them for their workforce due to the difficulty in quantifying the return-on-investment (ROI). However, a comprehensive analysis of 42 published studies of worksite health promotion programs showed that companies that implemented an effective wellness program realized significant cost reductions and financial gains, including:

  • An average of 28 percent reduction in sick days
  • An average of 26 percent reduction in health costs
  • An average of 30 percent reduction in workers’ compensation and disability management claims

 An average $5.93 to $1 savings-to-cost ratio!

The 2012 Aflac WorkForces Report found similar results. Nearly all (92 percent) of the companies with a wellness program in place agreed that these programs are effective, and 47 percent reported the programs are very or extremely effective. In addition, 44 percent of employers agree they are able to offer lower health insurance premiums as a result of their wellness program, and six in 10 (61 percent) agree they have a healthier workforce as a result of having a wellness program in place.

Corporate Wellness programs are simply a valuable tool for cutting health care expenses. Proactive approaches to wellness are now widely accepted as both cost-effective and necessary for successful benefits programs.
