The Council also encourages worksites to utilize the Wisconsin Worksite Wellness Resource Guide to help develop or improve worksite wellness programs.  Other resources and tools are also available from this web site.

 

 

Why Worksite Wellness

The Governors’ Council on Physical Fitness and Health has identified worksite wellness as a key area to promote good health.  WHY?  Because many studies have now shown that employee health affects a company’s bottom line in many ways.  Here are three key factors:

  •      Decreased health care costs - An investment in your employees' health may lower health care costs or slow the increase in providing that important benefit. In fact, employees with more risk factors, including being overweight, smoking and having diabetes, cost more to insure and paid more for health care than people with fewer risk factors. The payoff in dollars as well as in quality of life can have a big impact on your company’s bottom line.  The average Cost/Benefit ratio for wellness programs based on a summary of 28 articles was $3.48 saved per $1 invested Aldana, 2001).                                                                       
  •         Increased productivity - Healthier employees are more productive. This has been demonstrated in factory settings and in office environments in which workers with workplace wellness initiatives miss less work. Presenteeism, in which employees are physically present on the job but are not at their most productive or effective, is reduced in workplaces that have wellness programs. 
  •      Better morale - A company that cares about its employees' health is often seen as a better place to work. Those companies save money by retaining workers who appreciate the benefit of a wellness program and they can attract new employees in a competitive market.
