Worksite wellness programs are being touted as life-savers for drowning employers, but can wellness really save you? Research suggests substantial returns for employers willing to invest, but some employers may need highly reliable ROI projections.  For such employers and their brokers, an ROI calculator can be a great tool.

A good wellness return on investment calculator will show at least 4 things:

  1. The annual cost of “Doing nothing.” A company should know the future cost of not investing in an evidence-based wellness program.
  2. The overall wellness return on investment for the company that chooses to invest in a worksite wellness program
  3. The savings attributable to decreased absenteeism and presenteeism in an employee population
  4. The ROI for risk factors such as obesity and smoking, which can be reduced by a wellness program.

With just a few clicks you can find out if you can rise above the sinking costs of healthcare!

 

Stop drowning! Use the WellSteps ROI Calculator to see if there is a wellness program return on investment in your future.
