The most valuable asset to any company is its employees
Research has shown, healthy employees are happier and more productive in the workplace. According to the American Journal of Health Promotion, 25% of all health claims are related to major health risks such as poor nutrition, lack of exercise, stress, obesity, smoking, depression, alcohol use, and high blood pressure. In fact, a study completed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shown that 75% of health care spending is attributable to illnesses that are entirely preventable.
We know the cost of an unhealthy workforce can significantly impact a company’s bottom line. As part of our MANAGE TO ZERO® Program, Potomac Companies has developed a proprietary program known as HEALTHe Initiatives™ (Helping Employees Achieve Longevity Through Health Education). HEALTHe Initiatives™ works with employers to promote employee lifestyle changes that keep low-risk employees healthy, convert medium-risk individuals to low-risk, and properly manage high-risk employee health through prevention, health education, and chronic disease management. By instituting corporate wellness programs and effectively integrating them with their benefits and their culture, employers can effectively decrease health care costs, reduce employee absenteeism, increase productivity, and improve retention rates.
Potomac Companies’ HEALTHe Initiatives™ program gives employers the tools they need to successfully implement wellness programs and incentives. Our services include:
- Education on the benefits of wellness initiatives
- Recommendations for health promotion options
- Coordination and management of corporate wellness programs
- Ongoing review and analysis of program effectiveness
