In a 2007 Business Roundtable Survey, CEOs pointed to the cost of health care as the single biggest threat to their company profits. Meanwhile, employee illness and chronic poor health, as well as low employee satisfaction and high turnover all contribute to lost company earnings. In fact, three out of ten working people admit that health problems lower their productivity at work. (Avalere Health, October 2007).
Drawing on the expertise of a nationwide committee of experts including doctors, benefits specialists and workplace wellness program planners, Healthy Workplace offers struggling small business owners and managers crucial advice on how to implement a low-cost or even free wellness program that results in increased productivity and potentially lower health insurance costs.
Clear and succinct (that is, free of consultant-speak), and filled with practical guidance, Healthy Workplace, shows small businesses how to evaluate the main health concerns within their own office, whether they be:
nutrition and healthy eating habits
stress management and emotional health
fitness and regular exercise
disabilities and chronic illness
and other concerns so that managers can put the right programs and policies in place, and provide employees with information and proactive measures for improvement while paving the road to greater productivity-and company savings.
