Why Workplace Wellness Programs Are Gaining Traction

Due to the increasing hours spent on the job, the workplace has become an important environment for protecting health, promoting healthy behaviors with programs that target the prevention of chronic diseases. On average, Americans working full-time will spend more than one-third of their day at the workplace - multiply that by those racking up full-time hours and this becomes significant.

Clearly, employers have a responsibility to provide their employees with both a safe and hazard-free workplace, but they also have come to serve as a key player in providing opportunities to promote improved individual health and to foster a healthy work environment for the nearly 140 million workers in the United States alone.

The use of effective workplace programs and policies can reduce health risks and improve the quality of life for American workers.

Therefore, it makes sense that maintaining a healthier workplace and workforce can directly lower both "direct costs" such as insurance premiums and worker’s compensation claims. It can also positively impact many indirect costs such as absenteeism, "presenteeism" and worker productivity.
