Corporate Wellness Programs:
Our Core Fundamentals
The five pillars of our approach are built from innovation, science, and real-life
- Mindset is about walking into situation or working towards a goal with a full understanding of what it requires and how to accomplish it.
- Nutrition is fuel for the body and brain. Understanding healthy eating habits cuts through the latest diet marketing hype.
- Movement refers to specific patterns which create a platform for the general and specific parameters of longevity. This is essential for wellness, weight management, and vitality
- Reconditioning is to compliment the health and wellness program and bridge the gap between rehab and reconditioning to reduce time off and prevent future injuries.
- Data Collection will create a results based program that will focus its needs on both the employee and employer.
High healthcare costs continue to be of concern to American businesses. Today, the average annual health insurance premium is $4,500 for individual employees and more than $12,000 for families. Future projections are that healthcare costs will continue to climb about twice as fast as general inflation. It is also estimated that the total healthcare cost of the nation will reach 20% of GDP by 2016.
Today, more than 81% of America’s businesses with 50 or more employees have some form of health promotion program the most popular being exercise, stop- smoking classes, back care programs, and stress management. Most employers offer wellness programs simply because they think the benefit is worth the cost. Yet business leaders continue to ask themselves how to control huge annual increases in health insurance premiums and health care costs. For many companies, medical costs can consume half of corporate profits or more. Some employers look to cost sharing, cost shifting, managed care plans, risk rating, and cash-based rebates or incentives. But these methods merely shift costs. Only worksite health promotion stands out as the long-term answer for keeping employees well in the first place.
To prevent back injuries among its employees, a county in California targeted white- and blue-collar workers, offered classes and fitness training. As a result, there was a significant increase in employee morale, reduced worker’s comp claims, medical costs and sick days related to back injuries producing a net cost- benefit ratio of 1 to 1.79.
Successful corporate wellness programs average a 3 to 1 ROI, and documented cases of a ROI as high as 15 times investment have been seen. The overall goal of any corporate health and wellness program will focus on improving employee health and productivity by:
- Reduce absenteeism:
- Improve Productivity
- Improve Presenteeism
- Reduce Injuries
- Improve Employee Morale
Where do you start? Our model encompasses a different approach that provides specific priorities to each individual to help identify their health concerns and improve on their well being.
We focus on providing a sound solution based not the NEEDS OF THE INDIVIDUAL.
How are we different?
- We don't just focus on High Risk, but rather each individual.
- Stretching is not enough - it is about basic movement that will help identify muscular imbalances.
- One size does not fit all - based on the 4 quadrant model we can help prioritize each area of concern.
- Data Collection: our state of the art software will allow us to track trends based on the specific population and therefore create a higher rate of return for the company.
