FitSense Understands Health and Wellness Programs

A corporate wellness program is a crucial investment for any organisation. It is more than just a means of making employees feel good about their employer, but rather a key means to financial success. Health and wellness programs have been shown to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and reduce staff turnover. A corporate health program is now a 'must have' for any organisation serious about looking after their staff and achieving their financial goals. Therefore, a health and wellness program is a smart business decision for organisations of all sizes.

Start Your Company Health Program with a Health Assessment

A key attribute of a successful staff wellness program, is the ability to measure the outcomes. The most effective means of monitoring the health of your staff is through the delivery of annual onsite health assessments. This allows you to track the change in organisational health and thus determine the impact of your staff wellness program. Health and wellness program can include a wide range of health improvement initiatives and therefore an initial staff health assessment allows you to determine key focus areas for your program.

Benefits of Wellness Programs in the Workplace

The Health and Performance Institute of Australia (HAPIA) best practice guidelines identify that workplace health programs can expect a 25% decrease in sick leave absenteeism, a 41% decrease in workers compensation costs, a 24% decrease in disability management costs, and an estimated saving of $5.81 saving for every $1 invested in employee wellbeing. A recent staff health and wellness program run by FitSense measured annual absenteeism costs to be $650 higher for staff of moderate or poor health, compared to their healthy colleagues. The employee health checks also allowed for an estimated $250 saving annually per employee as a result of increased productivity. This illustrates the financial and analytical benefits of implementing an employee wellness program.
