Living Great Working Great is our signature Health & Wellness program, seamlessly integrated into your hotel’s existing Loss Prevention program. Making The Case For Business There are substantial corporate savings and return on investment (ROI) in workplace wellness programs. According to Wellness Proposals, Inc., there are over 200 published scientific studies indicating the positive ROI for hotel wellness programs. The National Group on Health reports improvements in employee health along with high ROIs for each $1.00 invested in wellness:
- Wellness programs – $3.00 to $8.00 within 5 years
- Lifestyle behavior change programs – $3.00 to $6.00 within 2 to 5 years
- Disease management programs – $7.00 to $8.00 within 1 year
A report in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine reveals that work health promotion programs may bring a 20+ percent decrease in sick leave. Why Wellness Works Recent studies by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) demonstrate that about 50% of a person’s health is determined by behavior. The good news is that poor genetics don’t necessarily set an unalterable course. The bad news is that people don’t make the best health decisions for themselves almost 50% of the time. Wellergize reports that out of 100 Americans in the average office:
- 66 report high stress
- 59 are seated all day
- 49 are physically inactive all the time
- 36 are overweight
- 23 are obese
- 21 smoke
- 21 are binge drinkers
- 14 have used marijuana in the last year
It may seem like a daunting task to design, develop and manage wellness and disease management programs to address these health issues. However, health is wealth for both the employee and employer. Savings and success will be proportional to the extent that your hotel’s management team institutionalizes wellness into its culture.
