Worksite Wellness Efforts Lead to More Productive Employees

businesspeople

Worksite wellness programs like MedBen WellLiving benefit an employer's bottom line... and not only by reducing claims for costly chronic conditions. A healthier workplace also results in more productive employees.

According to The Wall Street Journal, a focused company wellness study found that the employees who participated in a wellness program increased their productivity by an average of 4% during the subsequent year. Productivity change was particularly apparent in sick workers whose health improved from one annual wellness exam to the next -- their output increased by an average of 10.8%.

“Showing up feeling better means people work harder on a day-to-day basis,” said study co-author Ian Larkin, a management professor at the University of California. The authors estimated for every $100 the company spent on the wellness program, it earned $176 in output from its employees.

Through the WellLiving program, MedBen is dedicated to bettering the physical and financial health of its clients. Simply by encouraging better health and eliminating gaps in plan members' care, employers are realizing lower health care costs, reduced absenteeism, and a more productive workplace.
