Healthy Workforce

We know that chronic diseases are significant drivers of health care costs, and that the majority of American employees have at least one chronic condition. Health management initiatives, including workplace health promotion/wellness programs, help employees live healthier lives while at the same time improving employers’ bottom lines through reduced health costs and increased productivity. With this in mind, employee health programs and workplace health promotion programs should be viewed and managed as a strategic investment to be maximized rather than an expense to be minimized.
