Corporate Wellness

Your benefits: Corporate Wellness is profitable for your company. It’s important to keep your employees happy. Happy employees usually means less absenteeism. Happy employees usually have fewer addictions and fewer health issues.  They’re more creative, more responsible, more efficient, and get along better with others.  And that translates into bigger profits for your company. 

Stress ~ Depression ~ Anxiety

Most companies don’t have processes to address significant changes in employee productivity or behavior.  In addition, only 1 in 5 businesses feel this is important enough to address as a priority. Because missed work days have a profound financial effect on a company’s bottom line, it is beneficial for most businesses to implement strategies to equitably monitor, reduce and respond to absenteeism. (Forbes article on costs of absenteeism)

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, the leading cause of absenteeism in the United States is depression. Depression can lead to substance abuse if people turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate their pain or anxiety. Here’s a great article from The Guardian on this subject.

Depression and Mental Health Disorders

• American employees used about 8.8 million sick days in 2001 due to untreated or mistreated depression (National Committee for Quality Assurance, 2002).
• Indirect costs of untreated mental health disorders results in a $79 billion annual loss to businesses due to loss of productivity and absenteeism (U.S. Surgeon General’s Report on Mental Health, 1999).
• Depression results in more days of disability than chronic health conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes (National Committee for Quality Assurance, 2004).
• According to the National Institutes of Mental Health, depression costs an estimated $23 billion in lost workdays every year.

Health Promotion Outcomes

• A review of 73 published studies of worksite health promotion programs shows an average savings of $3.50 for every dollar spent, in terms of reduced absenteeism and healthcare costs (Aldana, S. G., 2003).
• A review of 42 published studies of worksite health promotion programs shows an average 28% reduction in sick leave absenteeism , 26% reduction in healthcare costs, 30% reduction in workers’ compensation and disability management claims costs with a corresponding $5.93 savings for every dollar spent (Chapman, L. S., 2003).
