What's Included

PURPOSE Most corporations are promoting a healthy lifestyle in the hopes of making their workforce more productive, reducing employee medical claims on the company’s health benefits, and combating the ever increasing “presenteeism” epidemic that costs US companies billions every year. PRODUCTIVITY & ABSENTEEISM According to Healthy Workforce 2010 and Beyond, a joint effort of the US Partnership for Prevention and the US Chamber of Commerce, organizations need to view employee health in terms of productivity rather than as an exercise in health care cost management. The emerging discipline of Health and Productivity Management (HPM) has shown that health and productivity are “inextricably linked” and that a healthy workforce leads to a healthy bottom line. There is now strong evidence that health status can impair day-to-day work performance (e.g., presenteeism) and have a negative effect on job output and quality. Current recommendations for employers are not only to help its unhealthy population become healthy, but also to keep its healthy population from becoming sick. Employers are encouraged to implement population-based programs including health risk appraisals and health screenings in conjunction with targeted interventions. Further, employers are highly encouraged to promote physical fitness and proper nutrition as key components to achieve their desired results. In fact, improper nutrition contributed to roughly 45,000,000 sick days in the US alone last year, costing the US economy some $73 billion.
