Health Promotion Leads To Increased Productivity, Decreased Absenteeism, And $353 Per Employee Savings

September 08, 2014

A recent study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that health promotion programs improve employee productivity and save money for their employers.

Employees who participated in a health promotion program and successfully improved their health care or lifestyle showed significant improvements in lost work time.

Participating employees saved an average of $353 per person per year. This reflects about 10.3 hours in additional productive time annually, compared with similar, but nonparticipating employees.
