At Synergy Fitness our business is Wellness.
As costs of insurance continue to climb, more and more companies are turning to wellness and fitness programs to successfully manage their budgets and keep their health insurance costs down. It's clear to see why this is a growing trend when you consider:
For every $1 spent on wellness programs, employers can expect a return of $2.30 to $10.10 through lower medical claims, reduced absenteeism, improved productivity according to a study published by the American Journal of Health Promotions
Delaware-based DuPont Co. cited a 47.5% drop in absenteeism over a six-year period for participants in their wellness program.
Additionally, a healthy organization increases employee morale, improves the ability to attract and retain key people, all while having more alert and productive employees.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that healthy employees generate fewer medical expenses, less absenteeism and, are more likely to be more productive. As a result, corporate wellness or fitness programs are becoming critically important as a means to manage costs and improve employee morale and retention. They are an integral part of the company benefits package.
