It seems pretty simple to us:
A happy, healthy employee is a productive employee. Conversely, an unhappy, unhealthy employee, who feels like the company they work for isn't invested in their health and well being, surely won't be.
In the former case, everyone wins!
In the latter, no one does.
What is corporate wellness?
At Wy'east Wolfpack we believe it to be any employer-sponsored program designed to support employees as they adopt and sustain behaviors that reduce health risks and improve quality of life, increase personal effectiveness, and ultimately benefit the organization's bottom line.
Corporate wellness programs are often seen as a nice extra, not a strategic imperative. These days, however, with new tax incentives and grants available under recent federal health care legislation, U.S. companies can use wellness programs to chip away at mounting health care costs. It is proven that a comprehensive, strategic investment in employees' social, mental, and physical health literally pays off.
Even without government incentives, healthy employees cost you less & Stay with your company:
-Medical claim costs decline significantly when employees hold a low-risk status according to body fat, blood pressure, anxiety, and other measures.
-For example, the leaders at Johnson & Johnson estimate that wellness programs have cumulatively saved the company over $250 million on health care costs over the past decade; from 2002-2008, the return was $2.71 for every dollar spent.
-According to a Towers Watson study and the National Business Group on Health, organizations with highly effective wellness programs report significantly lower voluntary attrition than do those whose programs have low effectiveness (9% vs. 15%)
How we do it!
At Wy'east Wolfpack we address employee physical and mental health by designing and implementing custom wellness plans in the form of group fitness classes and functional training clinics.
Since venturing into the corporate world, we couldn't be happier. It has been a true pleasure working with companies who prioritize employee health and provide them with opportunities for physical activity within the work day. It's also been rewarding to see people regularly utilizing these classes and feeling healthy and more stress-free because of it. After all, that's what we're here to do!
