The statistics are staggering as to the state of health of our American workers and the “HUGE” benefits to a company if they have healthy employees.
- 86% of full time workers are overweight or have at least one chronic-illness.
- Those that fall in both of these categories miss hundreds of millions of days of work each year.
- Over 153 billion dollars in lost productivity annually.
*With an EFFECTIVE Health & Wellness program implemented.
- 28% reduction in sick days.
- 26% reduction in health costs.
- 30% reduction in worker’s compensation and disability management claims.
Taking into account both the bad and good news it makes sense that 73% of small companies and 98% of large companies offer at least one wellness program. There are a number of health and wellness companies offering programs and health insurance companies are willing to pay part or all of the cost to implement a program because they realize the savings in health costs. There can be an estimated $5.93 to $1.00 savings to cost ratio!
These savings can’t be achieved unless the programs being offered are effective in improving the individual health of your employee. Even as little as a 1% reduction in excess weight, high blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol levels has shown to save $83 to $103 annually in medical costs per person.
DRUGS can cost employers over 81 billion annually as 70% of the estimated 14.8 million who use illegal drugs are employed which effects job performance by inconsistent work quality, poor concentration and lack of focus, lowered productivity or erratic work patterns, increased absenteeism, unexplained disappearances from the job site, carelessness, mistakes or errors in judgement, needless risk taking, disregard for safety for self and others on the job and off the job accidents, extended lunch periods and early departures.
HEALTHY WORKERS ARE SAFER WORKERS!

We are an “ACCOUNTABILITY” service that is the missing key to anyone trying to maintain a healthy way of life. Our approach is holistic in that we address the spirit, mind and body which is being recognized and a adopted by more and more companies.

So just getting in physical shape will not have the most impact as programs that address an employees TOTAL health!

A “Fit Life” plan will be created entailing all aspects of their life with the goal to help them become the best version of themselves. They will receive weekly “FIT TIPS” and motivational messages.
