  • The Cultural Impact of Wellness Programs

    “It’s become critical to create a culture that engages employees, showing them that the company cares about all aspects of their well-being. Employers need employees who are able to engage and to get that, employers have to invest in their workforce with tools and resources that drive daily healthy habits in order to create a workforce that’s got the energy, focus and drive necessary to engage at work and in life. When employees feel supported and secure, they’re able to connect and bring their best to work.”

    Chris Boyce, CEO of Virgin Pulse
  • Injury Rate and Associated Cost Savings

    Firefighting is a hazardous occupation that often requires strenuous work in dynamic and unpredictable environments. Leffer and Grizzell (2010) found a ROI of $4.60 for every dollar invested in a 2 year program (savings were based on workers compensation claims and medical costs). They achieved a 40% reduction in injuries during year 1, which increased to a 60% reduction in injuries in the second year. They also demonstrated statistically significant weight loss in participants.

  • Benefits of Workplace Injury Prevention, Health and Wellbeing Programs

    Employers run health and wellbeing programs because they want to:
    > Improve work performance and productivity
    > Reduce costs associated with absenteeism, presenteeism, disability and workers’ compensation
    > Improve the culture of the organisation and retain existing employees
    > Improve the organisation’s image, attract talented employees and fulfil corporate social responsibility obligations.
