Obesity's effect on your bottom line
The total cost of obesity to U.S. companies as a result of lower productivity and absenteeism is estimated at $73.1 billion per year. Researchers at Duke University Medical Center found that obese workers filed twice the number of workers' compensation claims, had seven times higher medical costs from those claims and lost 13 times more days of work from work injury or work illness than did non-obese workers. 3
To combat the obesity epidemic, many companies are investing in corporate wellness programs. Corporate wellness programs are an investment in your company's most important resource: your employees. They can:
- Decrease healthcare and insurance costs
- Decrease absenteeism
- Lower Workers' Compensation costs
- Lessen short-term disability
- Enhance performance, productivity, and morale
- Improve ability to attract and retain key personnel
- Promote greater employee loyalty
- Improve public image of the company
The federal government understands the importance of corporate wellness programs and has charged employers with two objectives as part of the Healthy People Program:
- 75 percent of all employers, regardless of size, providing wide reaching corporate wellness programs
- 75 percent of all a company's staff participating in employer-sponsored corporate wellness programs
The Medi-Weightloss® Corporate Weightloss Program is helping companies across the United States improve their employees' health, and as a result, decrease their healthcare expenses.
