Making Your Business More Fiscally Fit
As businesses in today’s society look for ways to improve efficiency, productivity and the bottom line, most are faced with the growing issue of lost productivity from excessive employee sick days caused by on-the-job stress. A well-implemented wellness program can significantly reduce the number of sick days employees take, and with improved health, employee on the-job productivity also increases.
You may already be aware of the double-digit increase in health care costs for employers between 2001 and 2004.These soaring expenses have seriously affected business’ day-to-day operations. According to Mercer Human Resource Consulting’s National Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Plans 2004, the average per-employee cost increase of 7.5% outpaced general inflation.

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of, and making choices toward, a more successful existence. This means being proactive in reducing and/or preventing illness. Whilst there is little research on the cost of unhealthy workers to Australia, overseas figures show alarming costs. U.S facts are in and the Surgeon General has issued a new national warning label, similar to the one used for smoking, that reads:“The lack of physical activity is detrimental to your health.” The CDC estimates that 60 percent of American adults don’t get enough exercise. In fact, physical activity decreases with age and among women. What most people don’t know is that physical activity doesn’t need to be strenuous to have benefits and that regular, moderate physical activity, like a 30-minute brisk lunchtime walk five times a week, is beneficial.
