Employee Health is a Resource
POOR HEALTH IS A DRAIN ON YOUR ORGANIZATION
In recent decades obesity, diabetes and other lifestyle diseases have created a health crisis in America. These conditions can be devastating for individuals and families, but they also significantly hurt employers. While poor employee health increases the need for expensive healthcare and raises insurance premiums, lost employee productivity costs multiple times the direct medical cost. CDC studies have found that obese workers lose 13 times as many workdays and file twice as many workers comp claims as normal-weight workers. On average employee productivity losses due to absenteeism alone costs employers $1,685 per employee.
Lifestyle diseases are largely preventable
The benefits of a healthier organization and wellness in the workplace may be much greater than you realize. By helping your employees establish healthier habits, you will reap more employee productivity and increased savings to your bottom line. More importantly, your employees will be happier and healthier, creating a stronger and more positive organizational culture.

Productivity, culture, and savings
As a corporate resource, employee health can either add to or subtract from your bottom line. Employee health plays a significant role in the success of any organization. Employers struggle with controlling healthcare costs, keeping up employee productivity and competing for talent. Without healthy employees, each of these can quickly become a major problem. CDC studies have shown that productivity losses from health-related absenteeism total over $225.8B per year or $1,685 per employee.
Obese workers lose 13 times more workdays on average, driving the cost of absenteeism even higher. Additionally, employees with high-risk profiles use expensive sick care more often, which can increase the rates that you pay for insurance. EHG’s corporate wellness programs mitigate these risks. While employees save on their deductibles, co-pays and out of pocket expenses, businesses save on premium so that everyone lives healthy and fulfilling lives. The logic is clear.

Your employees lead healthier, happier lives
There are few things an organization can do that have the same impact on the lives and happiness of employees as giving them the gift of good health. Healthier people are happier people. As the saying goes, A healthy person has a thousand dreams, an unhealthy person but one. When more of your employees enjoy good health, it makes a dramatic impact on your organization. Employee productivity rises and the culture improves. Your organization is better able to retain employees and attract new talent. Most of all, you show your employees that you genuinely care about their wellbeing and invest in improving their lives.
