It makes good business sense to keep employees healthy. Research has shown that, as employee health
risks increase, so does the expense to employers in direct costs (medical,
pharmacy) and indirect costs (absenteeism, disability).
Because employees spend many of their waking
hours on the job, worksites can have an impact on individual health.
Policies, on-site activities and the physical
design of facilities contribute to worksite culture and support for employee
health and wellness.
- When employers implement workplace health
programs, employees’ health and productivity increase.
