What is corporate wellness? Corporate wellness is an organized, employer-sponsored program that is designed to support employees (and, sometimes, their families) as they adopt and sustain behaviors that reduce health risks, improve quality of life, and enhance personal effectiveness all of which benefit the organization’s bottom line.
With the rising cost of health care, more and more companies are concerned about the bottom line costs they pay for their employees’ health. Obesity, smoking, diabetes, stress, poor nutrition, and lack of (or little to no) exercise make up just a few of the examples that drive up the cost of health care for individual employees.
Companies are discovering that these costs are controllable by implementing prevention programs such as a Corporate Wellness program.
Queen City Kettlebell is a premier provider of these programs in Cincinnati with a proven track record of success. We offer on-site personal training and group sessions to companies who value their employees’ health while driving down the cost of health care to both the individual and the business. We come to you!
Employees can take advantage of our very knowledgeable and professional staff on-site for one, two, or three days a week, hourly or multi-hourly sessions. Programs are created to encompass all levels fitness and encourage employees to build a supportive atmosphere while engaging in a healthy lifestyle.
We can also create individual programs for clients who may need a little more one-on-one attention. We take great pride in our program design so that it meets all the needs of any employee who makes the choice to live a healthier life. We monitor our sessions closely to ensure that everyone who chooses to participate receives the maximum benefit of our programs. We can also deliver stat reports to show which clients are coming to our sessions, how often, and track their individual improvements.
Who uses such programs? Johnson & Johnson has since 1995. An article found in The Harvard Business Review states that the percentage of J&J employees who smoke have dropped by more than 66% and the number employees who have high blood pressure more than 50%. In the same article the company suggests that it has saved around $250 million on employee health care over 10 years.
While these programs were once considered a “nice to have,” more businesses are noticing the trend active, happy employees have on their bottom line. Not only does the cost of health care go down but it also appears employees are happier while taking part in such programs. Happy employees are more productive employees. Happy, healthy employees are also shown to stay with the company on an average of 15% longer than those who do not take part in wellness programs, up from 4% between 2005 and 2009.
Queen City Kettlebell can help implement such programs for you and your business! We work with local small business with less than 10 employees to larger, well known organizations of a few hundred employees.
