Why Corporate Wellness

Employee productivity and performance are two major components of a successful corporation. Data has demonstrated that high levels of stress, poor diet, excess body weight and a lack of self care contributes to illness related absenteeism, decreased productivity and overall dissatisfaction in the work place.

Health and wellness related programs such as those provided by Boston Health Coaches (BHC) have been associated with lower employer related costs due to improved health, fitness, nutrition and lifestyle choices adapted by employees.

Some interesting facts:

  • Obesity is one of the root causes of chronic disease, accounting for nearly 10% of the amount that the U.S. spends annually on healthcare. A recent study found that obesity-related health spending reached $147 billion, double what it was nearly a decade ago.
  • In 2007, total healthcare spending was $2.4 trillion, or $7,900 per person. U.S. healthcare spending represented 17% of the gross domestic product (GDP). U.S. healthcare spending is expected to increase at similar levels for the next decade, reaching $4.3 trillion in 2017, or 20% of GDP.
  • According to a 2009 study, it has been suggested that chronic disease can be reduced by as much as 80% if an individual adheres to healthy lifestyle practices including maintaining a healthy weight, eating well, getting regular exercise, not smoking.
