Did you know that on average we spend ½ of our waking hours at work? That means that often times we see our work families more than our actual families. So where better to start making improvements to your health than the place where you spend the majority of your time?
Healthy employees are more productive, approved drugs engaged, pilule and profitable. In fact, employees with access to a wellness program at work have actually been found to have higher job satisfaction than those who didn’t.
According to the Sanofi Canada Healthcare study, 59% of employees had been diagnosed with at least one chronic condition, and of those almost 40% reported that their illness has either made their job harder and/or caused them miss work.
As an employer, take a moment to consider what these types of conditions cost you in:
- Health and Drug claims
- Sick Days
- And Disability Claims
According to the world health organization, 80% of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes and 40% of cancer cases can be prevented through diet and lifestyle changes. While there are a wide variety of “Wellness Programs” available on the market, without personalized data and a credible health professional driving individual change they often don’t address the core problem.
We believe that sustainable lifestyle changes should start with an in depth look at your body and how fuel your day. Incorporating healthy conversations into your corporate culture and pairing employees with a personal Dietitian coach helps drive long-term change.
