Healthy employees are more productive

A recent study by the University of California Riverside found that companies offering employee wellness programs saw a significant gain in productivity among workers. Researchers studied a wellness program and found that all employees who participated improved productivity an average of one full workday per month.

Healthy employees take fewer sick days

Research from the Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO), Brigham Young University and the Center for Health Research at Healthways shows, healthy employees take fewer sick days. Absenteeism is 27 percent lower for those workers who eat healthy and regularly exercise.

Wellness programs improve job satisfaction

Based on the Aflac Workforces report, wellness programs improve employee job satisfaction (as reported by 60% of the 5000 employees surveyed) and happiness. This resulted in increased productivity and decreased healthcare costs and absenteeism. A company’s bottom lines improve when sick pay decreases.
