National studies continue to show that the number one method of increasing productivity, reducing absenteeism and cutting overall healthcare costs is implementing wellness advocacy programs in the workplace.
An example is the recent study and report released by Harvard University which found that medical costs fall about $3.27 and absentee day costs fall by about $2.73 for every dollar spent on them. Considering that employees spend a majority of their waking hours at work, it makes sense that employees may benefit most by learning about wellness at work.
The Wall Street Journal recently reported that 90% of employers offer some sort of wellness program and incentives in the workplace. However not all wellness programs are alike. GBP can help you determine which programs will be most beneficial for your company.
