On-Demand Corporate Wellness Program
Providing Your Workforce With the Tools to Living a Healthy Life
Corporate wellness is the key to providing your workforce with the tools to combat stress, increase productivity, and enhance their health and wellbeing.
Virtual Corporate Wellness is a cost-effective way of providing quality monthly content to your employees, throughout the year.
I am sure you are well aware of the statistics, but here are a few just to highlight the benefits of a yearly program:
- According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the majority of today’s chronic diseases can be prevented altogether or better managed. The CDC estimates that 80% of heart disease and stroke, 80% of type 2 diabetes, and 40% of cancer could be prevented if Americans would stop smoking, start eating healthy and exercise most days of the week.
- Additionally the 17th Annual Towers Watson National Business Group on Health, states that companies spent an average of $11,000 per employee on healthcare in 2011, and the past six years have seen a leveling of the increase in healthcare expenditures to about six percent per year. A lack of participation in employer-sponsored health promotion programs is a common problem in the U.S primarily because of insufficient education available for the participants.
- In helping employees become more physically active, companies hope to help their bottom line and see a return on their investment (ROI). Current research from the Harvard School of Public Health measured the ROI of wellness programs over a three-year period of time to be $6 for every $1 invested. This means, that for every dollar an employer invests into their comprehensive wellness program, they can expect to see about $3.27 return on healthcare costs, and $2.73 return on productivity. The key here is to teach employees how to eat right, exercise for their specific needs, and about the array of benefits available from living a healthy life so that they can reap even more benefits from their current program.
Virtual Corporate Wellness will provide programming that can be viewed at any time, repeated if needed, and shared with any number of employees. The yearly programs include the following:
- Lunch and Learn - This one-hour class provides topics ranging from disease prevention, stress reduction, nutrition, ergonomics, and much more
- Stretch and Learn - This 15 minute work break, will provide a full week of classes that incorporate desk stretches and healthy tips.
- Exercise and Mindfulness Classes - This 30-minute or one-hour class helps to reduce stress, teaches proper exercise form and technique, and provides an array of programs to encourage participants to sample something new.
