The program of corporate wellness is to positively transform peoples lives through superior education, motivation, and accountability. We have found that it takes multiple exposure to information along with holding people accountable for lasting change to take place. This process is accomplished in a motivating and fun environment. Once the specific challenges a company is facing are identified, specific programs can then be implemented to create lasting positive and healthy change.

 

People in the corporate world are painfully aware that health care costs are totally out of control. This places an ever increasing burden on a companys bottom line. The fact that most employees today are unhealthier and less productive than ever also spells big trouble for the corporate world.

 

Some of the statistics compiled by the National Commission on Productivity in the USA are:

 

In the workplace:

  1. Only 2 out of 10 people are working at their full potential.
  2. Half of the workforce expends only the minimum effort needed to not get fired.
  3. A 20 year research project at Kaiser Permanente estimates that 60% to 90 % of all visits to health care professionals are for preventable disorders.

 

The Cost to Employers:

  1. Health care in the US has exceeded $1 trillion dollars annually and businesses pay approximately 54% of this cost.
  2. Absenteeism, diminished productivity, employee turnover, accidents, etc, cost American business more than the annual total net profits of the Fortune 500 companies.
  3. US industry loses approximately 550 million workdays each year due to absenteeism.
  4. Workers compensation claims have skyrocketed; California employers annually spend over 1 billion for medical and legal fees.

 

Imagine if by helping employees help themselves, we can decrease absenteeism and stress while increasing a persons health and productivity. What would that mean to your company and to your companys bottom line?

 

 

The Programs Offered:

Corporate Wellness offers a variety of wellness related programs designed to positively affect the employee both while at work and while away from the company. “Wellness Workshops” and other programs are generally taught over multiple weeks to ensure maximum exposure and comprehension. Each workshop builds on the next so at the programs completion, predictable behavioral change in the individuals that participate is accomplished.
