With the ever increasing cost of health care, finding ways to reduce this expense is on the mind of every busy business executive, and the research is in. The cost of unhealthy or sick employees in your organization is high. Improving the overall health of your staff can benefit the organization in so many ways. Fitness U stands ready to assist you in your endeavor to reduce or control this significant expense.

Cost of sick employees

Direct Costs:
  • Employee-based medical and health insurance costs
  • Short-term disability payment premiums
  • Worker’s compensation costs
  • Life insurance rates

Hidden costs, although difficult to measure, can have a significant impact on your organization's bottom line:
Indirect Costs:
  • Increased absenteeism
  • Presenteeism (the act of being present in body but not producing!)
  • Time and expense of employee replacement (1)
  • Poor health lowers employee morale and leads to higher on the job injuries (2)
  • Absence or illness of one team member has been shown to decrease productivity of others on the team (3)

Return on investment for workplace wellness programs have a median return of 3 to 1 (i.e. for every $1.00 spent on wellness programs $3.00 was saved in direct and indirect health care costs**)

Meta-Analysis (4)

  • 27% reduction in sick leave and absenteeism
  • 32% reduction in workers' compensation and disability management claims costs
