According to research from the Integrated Benefits Institute, companies spend over $850 billion per year on health care benefits for their employees and dependants. However, illness- related productivity losses cost them another $500+ billion - meaning that for every dollar companies spend on health care, they're spending another 60 cents on lost productivity due to illness, sick time, disabilities, and medical leave.
“Days with illness-related absences which led to “lost productivity” totaled almost 1.5 billion days annually for all employees, the study found, and cost employers $3,900 per employee.”
As a company, your most important assets are your people. The health of your business is dependent on your employees ability to show up and perform at their best day in and day out.
AND WHAT’S YOUR EMPLOYEES MOST IMPORTANT ASSET?
THEIR OWN HEALTH.
Health related issues play massive roles in our everyday lives. Sleep deprivation, excess stress, poor quality diets, and lack of physical activity lead to:
Impaired cognitive performance and focus.
Depression, high anxiety, and decreased ability to function on a daily basis.
Increase risk for illness and disease that cause employees to take more sick days and increase healthcare costs.
And especially in the post-Covid world where many work-from-home employees have developed the habit of just rolling out of bed to sit in front of a computer - never moving - developing good, health-focused habits is more important than ever.
Simply put: Improving one's health leads to happier, better- performing employees; which translates into more revenue, lower costs, and better employee retention for the company.
At Sustain Health & Performance, our number one focus with clients is health optimization. We do that by helping clients improve their lifestyle through the education and implementation of better habits when it comes to their nutrition, stress management, physical activity, sleep, and more.
The goal of this one-of-a-kind program is to give your company the opportunity to provide more benefits to your employees, which will in turn directly increase what you get back out of them.
An investment in your employees health is an investment in the growth of your company. Healthier employees lead to happier, more productive employees. A study from the Harvard Business Review found that the ROI on employee wellness programs can be as high as 6-to-1. They can also reduce employee turnover rates by making employees feel more valued by the company and improve camaraderie with other employees through their shared experience in the program.
