“Wellness programs have often been viewed as a nice extra, not a strategic imperative,” says William B. Baun, manager of the wellness program at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, a director of the National Wellness Institute, and a director of the International Association for Worksite Health Promotion. “Newer evidence tells a different story.” Baun co wrote an article in the Harvard Business Review that studied the return on investment for 10 different organizations. The authors found that, unequivocally, wellness programs lead to healthier employees, which can yield an ROI of up to $6 for every dollar invested.
Dr. James Levine has found that sitting for 2+ hrs increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, back and neck pain, etc. (1) "Wellness programs offer businesses of all sizes a powerful, proactive strategy for managing health care costs.” according to Eliot Joseph, president and CEO of St. John Health. “These programs save companies money, boost productivity and motivate employees."
Further, some studies suggest that employees are only productive for roughly three hours a day. Dr. Martha Menard, a behavioral health scientist, writes that although productivity is a complex issue, wellness programs increase productivity by reducing absenteeism and improving employee retention. “A good wellness program can help employees get and stay healthier physically and emotionally.” According to Menard, this can mean feeling less stressed and more focused. “It encourages employee engagement and loyalty. Bottom line–healthy and happy employees are more productive employees.”
