WHY corporate wellness
Employees are humans. At the end of the day, how well they perform is often tied to how well they are engaged at work. Companies that focus on building their employees often have the best results in regard to performance and financial returns.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) lists 4 causes of chronic disease in our country among U.S. adults: 1) inactivity 2) poor nutrition 3) tobacco use 4) frequent alcohol consumption. The CDC reports that if these problems were eliminated, 80% of heart disease and stroke, 80% of type 2 diabetes, and 40% of cancer would be prevented. Adults in the workforce with these medical conditions cost both themselves and their employers money every year.
Wellness programs have become not only a beneficial part, but a necessary part of corporations and workplaces in recent years due to rising healthcare costs. Nutrition-focused counseling by a Registered Dietitian ensures that your employees create and maintain healthy lifestyle choices longterm.
Corporate wellness programs are a great way to show employees that you not only care about their work, but their wellbeing and health as well. This creates a positive shift in company culture, which in turn increases productivity and job satisfaction, and ultimately lowers company healthcare expenditures.
Employees who participate in corporate wellness programs begin to feel more motivated about their own health, have improved quality of life, & are more productive in the workplace.
How to ensure success
Chronic diseases are preventable through dietary changes. Corporate wellness programs that utilize registered dietitians can lead to a decrease in these chronic diseases through professional nutrition counseling. Dietitians enable lasting lifestyle changes in the lives of employees with science-based nutrition consultations tailored specifically to the individual, their goals, and past medical history.
One-on-one appointments with dietitians at your company through a Corporate Wellness program is the easiest way to make health accessible to your employees!
