Promoting employee health gains impressive ROI

See also

According to the American Heart Association, employers that spend on health promotion and chronic disease prevention programs achieved a rate of return on investment ranging from $3 to $15 for each dollar invested with savings realized within 12 to 18 months.

To ensure optimum performance among your employees, consider adopting one or more of these suggestions (some of which you can do with little to no investment):

  1. Serve healthy snacks (breakfast bars, fruit and nuts) instead of donuts and candy at meetings.
  2. Negotiate gym membership discounts with fitness clubs near your office for your employees.
  3. Subsidize smoking cessation classes.
  4. Offer stress-reducing neck massages by local therapists for low prices to your employees during lunch periods.
  5. Organize teams of employees to participate in local runs and walk-a-thons for charity.
  6. Invite nearby nutritionists to present workshops or seminars for free to employees at your office before or after work.
  7. Suggest a team forms to gather and then to publish healthy recipes in a cookbook that can be distributed electronically to all your employees.
  8. Partner with Weight Watchers to form a group of employees that can meet during lunchtime or after work at your office.

And, if you need individual assistance with eating healthfully as part of your fitness regimen, have YNK Meals prepare meals for you.
