Corporate Fitness and Wellness

Controlling escalating health care costs, increasing employee productivity, two of corporate America’s primary challenges in the coming decade. The cost of insuring a family of four has risen as much as 400% in just the last eight years. Those families are part of your corporation and you know who continues to foot the bill.

 

The more fit you are, the better you feel, the harder you work. That’s true for the individual and it’s true for companies, as the physical fitness of every employee affects the fiscal fitness of every corporation.

Positive Return on Investment

No decision-maker would deny that “one has to spend money

to make money,” as the familiar saying goes. Once the initial investment is made, a fitness or wellness program will immediately start paying for itself – provided that it’s properly promoted and maintained – and, eventually, realize concrete savings for the company.

General Mills instituted a lifestyle modification program to reduce absenteeism that required participants to complete one of three optional lifestyle activities every three months. An evaluation of the program found that in the second year of the program General Mills had saved $226.32 per employee in absentee related costs with an ROI of 3.1 to 1. The third year of the program saw an even higher ROI at 3.9 to 1.

Reduce Costs and Medical Claims

The most obvious benefit of a corporate fitness program is that it allows companies to reduce their overall health care costs, in part by reducing the total number of medical claims that they have to field each year. The U.S. Surgeon General reports that 75% of all illnesses can be attributed to lifestyle-related causes, and that 53% of America’s population is “inactive.” The more a business can help employees avoid illness and disease and manage their own health, the more it can manage its own healthcare costs each year.

In a research study, 5,689 adults were monitored over an 18-month time span to determine if a relationship exists between modifiable risk factors, such as exercise, and healthcare charges. Researchers found that the participants who never smoked, had a BMI of 25, and exercised three days a week had mean annual healthcare charges that were 49% lower than physically inactive smokers with a BMI above 27.5.

A four-year impact study of the Johnson & Johnson Health & Wellness Program, which integrates employee health, wellness, disability management, employee assistance and occupational programs, and places con- siderable emphasis on health promotion and disease pre- vention, found that there was a reduction in medical care expenditures of approximately $225 per employee per year. The study also found that the most substantial cost savings was seen in years three and four after implementation.
