I have been having fun teaching Corporate Wellness Programs, which is a route that I did not expect to go but have been finding an increased demand in the Jacksonville area. So...below is little rant about how happy healthy employees = increased corporate success rates. Spread the word if you think your company may be interested.
It's a WIN-WIN
A 30-year study looking at employee perceptions of management practices concluded that if employees improve individual fulfillment, through implementing stress management techniques and promoting wellness, employers are more likely to see an increase in the success of their organization.
Incorporating wellness programs into high-stress corporate environments benefit both the employee and employer. An estimated 75-90% of all visits to Primary Care Physicians are for stress-related complaints or disorders, as stress has been linked to all of the leading causes of death including heart disease and cancer. Techniques for managing stress and implementing wellness are essential for corporate and individual fulfillment.
Employers at large companies are paying 36 percent more for health care than they were five years ago, and the PWC Health Research Institute estimates an increase in employer medical expenses by 6.8 percent in 2015. Employer wellness programs are necessary for health prevention, employee fulfillment and overall company success.
