Increasing Profits for the Bottom Line
Occupational Health and Wellness Management Nurses focus on the underlying causes of health care cost increases, develop strategies to drive improvements in employees’ overall health and wellness, and consistently support employee engagement in health care decisions and health related behaviors.
Programs and policies that promote healthy behaviors can make a big difference on employee wellness AND have an impact on the company’s bottom line. Studies show that every dollar invested by employers in workplace health promotion and wellness programs produces savings ranging from $1.49 to $4.91, with a median savings of $3.14.
In business terms, that's more than a 3:1 minimum return on investment - a number that is hard to ignore, a best practice that warrants serious consideration from companies.
