The Wellness Puzzle

Everyone agrees we as a nation needs to get healthier and if we don't it's going to cost us big time. After all that's the argument for the national Health Care Reform regulations whether you agree with them or not.

It's not just "our nation", it's a lot closer to home.  The big corporations, medium size businesses, and mom and pop shops are going to pay the price if they don't do something to impact employee health and quick. The work force is getting older, young people are getting sicker and company's are paying these big bills in rising insurance premiums, too many employees not working because of illness, and when they are at work they are so "stressed" they can hardly put in a full day of work. Some company's have even reported they spend more money on health care than any other expense in their company and it's driving them out of business.

The question is how to even get started and who should do it? Designing a work place wellness employee program seems complicated at best and exhausting at worst. The new Health Care Reform regulations are very specific on what is an acceptable wellness program to qualify for the premium discounts. Since most wellness programs do not quality, it's going to be a little tricky so you are going to need the help of a consultant to make sure your company is on the right track.

A consultant can help you design a program that fits into your company's mission and values along with your company's unique culture to insure your employees gain a healthier lifestyle at work and at home. A consultant will help you put the pieces of wellness together so they fit perfectly together to help your employees get healthier and your bottom line.
