As an employer, if you are not promoting and investing in wellbeing programming for your employees, you may fall behind the curve in a few aspects.
As the younger generation is venturing into the workplace, they are expecting concrete wellbeing programming to be implemented and creative components towards overall wellness and ease of access to be intertwined. Having a functioning wellbeing program can help with your retention rates as this great resignation is upon us. If that aspect doesn’t motivate you to consider investing and starting a wellbeing program, what about the costs involved with chronic diseases?
What’s important to note is chronic diseases can be avoided, reduced or even stopped through lifestyle changes.
Of course there are specific direct costs and percentages associated with chronic diseases, but often times we forget the indirect costs if an employee cannot be present at work and the cost of that lost productivity.
For more information on containing the costs of chronic health conditions please view this resource.
