Guiding a Healthier…Business
Did you know that corporate wellness programs actually started in the late 70s? But it was the advent of the big tech firms over the past 20 years that have really moved these programs forward.
Companies of all sizes now see the value in a healthy, motivated workforce. They offer their staff subsidized or free wellness programs to promote general health and wellness, to minimize stress, fatigue, or just as an added employment benefit. These typically aren’t magnanimous gestures – there’s a financial reason behind it.
Did you know that employees in the United States miss 28.2 million workdays per year as a result of chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, back pain and depression? The resulting decrease in productivity costs employers $530 billion dollars annually. 90% of the nation’s $3.8 billion in annual healthcare costs are for people with chronic and mental health conditions.
Good diet and nutrition are the bedrock of general health and wellness, so why not incorporate a corporate nutrition program into your workplace? The question is this; do your employees have the skills and tools they need to make sustainable lifestyle changes that are proven to improve their health and well-being? The solution is our corporate nutrition program that we call: Journey to Wellness.
