Global rates of obesity, diabetes, and other chronic diseases are on the rise. Over 65% of the world’s population is overweight, and by the year 2020, it is estimated that half of the population will suffer from a preventable, chronic disease.
According to a World Health Organization report, chronic diseases are the major cause of death and disability worldwide. The United States alone spends over $2.5 Trillion every year on healthcare, with a large portion of that money coming from employers’ pockets for employee health insurance, medical leave, and sick days.
According to Dr Steven Holtze, the annual cost of lost productivity to employee fatigue is $136 Billion. Dr Hotze said, an employee who works at a lower productivity rate due to health reasons, results in an annual cost of $6,721.
At least 80% of premature heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, and 40% of cancer could be prevented through a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and avoidance of tobacco products. Cost-effective interventions exist and have worked in many countries.
Chronic stress, poor dietary habits, and lack of exercise all significantly contribute to employee performance. Interestingly, many of these costly, chronic ailments can be avoided with simple, preventative care for employees.
Hiring a health Coach for your organization is a cost-effective solution to improve employee health and morale while decreasing your organization’s health-related costs.
Employers are actively seeking new ways to reduce healthcare costs without jeopardizing their ability to attract and retain workers. These factors have prompted many organizations to actively promote health and wellness at work sites.
According to a survey released by Buck Consultants in 2011, 74% of responding employers in North America said they now offer wellness programs, providing incentives to encourage healthier lifestyles among employees.
By working with or hiring a Health Coach, employees will learn how to make better food and lifestyle choices, improving their physical and mental well-being.
