Activities promoting wellness are now being integrated strategically into the workplace environment with employee incentives and structured benefit design. With the increased demand for results-driven employee wellness programs, the need for allied and integrated health providers to oversee these programs is also growing exponentially.

According to a recent survey of U.S. employees conducted by the Global Wellness Institute (GWI) and Everyday Health, the average Fortune 500 Company spends a staggering 80 percent of its after-tax profits on employee medical costs—“un-wellness” at work costs the U.S. $2.2 trillion each year.

Corporate wellness programs can reduce the rate of illnesses and injuries in employees. Employees can experience muscle strain, back pain, stress fractures. Additionally, employees who are not healthy or do not have access to corporate wellness programs are more susceptible to diabetes, heart disease, or stroke.

Unhealthy, stressed and overworked employees are more susceptible to illness. Corporate wellness programs can reduce sick days among employees. Employees that are healthy tend to be more productive and produce higher quality work.
