Workplace Wellness Program

A comprehensive Workplace Wellness Program is one that assists employees to voluntarily make choices that improve their health and ultimately their productivity. It encompasses activities and opportunities for individuals in organizations to promote health and wellness. This helps create healthier employees and a better work environment. Well-structured wellness programs, when implemented consistently, have been shown to save money on healthcare costs[1]. It has also been proven that the healthier the employee, the better they will perform and the better their health-seeking behavior.

In a typical group of 100 employees, 29 have obesity, 21 have high blood pressure, 17 have high cholesterol, and 9 have elevated blood glucose[2]. Investing in workplace wellness programs encourages employees to practice healthier habits through eating better, working out more and relieving stress in productive ways. Wellness programs show that organizations actually care about their employees, and a work environment in which employees feel wanted and valued can increase productivity. Workplace wellness programs benefit employees and employers by reducing employees’ health risk factors which include:

  • Stress and other mental health challenges
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Poor nutrition
  • Lack of exercise compounded by a sedentary lifestyle and long hours spent sitting in the office
  • Overuse of and dependence on alcohol
  • Complications from health conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol



The Cost of Unhealthy Behaviour on the Employer

While unhealthy behavior can greatly affect an individual’s health, it can also be expensive for an employer. Direct and indirect costs associated with employees’ unhealthy lifestyles include:

  • Absenteeism due to excessive sick leave usage. Unhealthy employees run a higher risk of developing a chronic health condition, such as obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes, resulting in an average of 12 sick days per year[1].
  • Decreased productivity and Presenteeism [physically being at work but not working]. It is estimated that the cost associated with presenteeism due to poor employee health is at least 2 to 3 times greater than direct health care expenses[2]. While the cost of healthcare clearly dwarfs in comparison to this, it does not receive the same level of scrutiny among employers because it’s not a measured or tracked in corporate financial metrics and reporting.
  • Increased insurance claims due to poor health leading to higher insurance premiums and increased direct expenditure on health related costs. One out of every four dollars employers pay for health care is tied to unhealthy lifestyle choices[3].
  • Training of new staff due to the inability of current staff to perform the job duties





An average adult spends almost half their time awake at the workplace. Habits created and fostered in the workplace can therefore affect the overall health of the employee. Well designed and well implemented workplace wellness programs are the answer to building a healthier and thus more motivated and fulfilled workforce. There is mounting evidence on the impact of wellness programs in the workplace.

1. Wellness Programs Improve Employee Health Behaviors and Reduce Elevated Health Risks

Well-designed long term wellness programs have a dramatic positive impact on the health of employees. They have been shown to improve frequency and duration of exercise, consumption of fruits and vegetables and smoking cessation over a 2 year period[1]. A randomized clinical trial designed to help people improve their nutrition and physical activity noted a reduction in health risk factors such as elevated blood glucose, high blood cholesterol, and high blood pressure in as little as six weeks[2].



2. Wellness Programs Reduce Health Care Costs

Comprehensive worksite wellness programs that improve employee behaviors will see a bending of the healthcare cost trend. Most often they will discover that the savings from program participation will be greater than the actual cost of the program. Researchers from Harvard University demonstrated that medical costs fall about $3.27 for every dollar spent on wellness programs, and absentee costs fall by about $2.37 for every dollar spent[1]. The ability of a wellness program to reduce healthcare costs depends on the nature of the wellness program, with comprehensive long-term programs providing a higher return on investment.


3. Wellness Programs Improve Productivity and Reduce Presenteeism

There are a lot of reasons why employees have low productivity. One of the main causes of presenteeism is poor health.Smokers are 28% more likely to have high presenteeism than non-smokers. Employees with an unhealthy diet are 66% more likely to have high presenteeism than those who regularly eat whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Employees who don’t exercise very much were 50% more likely to have high presenteeism than employees who were regular exercisers. These findings demonstrate that poor health behaviors are strongly associated with high levels of presenteeism[1]. In short, unhealthy individual lifestyle choices may result in substantially higher levels of lost productive work time.Wellness programs that focus on helping employees have good health behaviors will have an impact on productivity.


4. Wellness Programs Can Decrease Absenteeism

Worksites with comprehensive wellness programs can experience reduced absenteeism for a variety of reasons; employees with good health behaviors, less stress and lower health risk indicators have lower absenteeism. Employees who have high morale are also significantly less likely to be absent from work. As previously highlighted there are also cost savings related to wellness programs and absenteeism, absentee costs fall by about $2.37 for every dollar spent on wellness programs.

5. Wellness Programs Can Help Improve Employee Retention

Wellness programs have a strong impact on retention. Rich benefits also have a powerful influence on retention, but a good wellness program goes a long way in keeping employees loyal.Human resources are the most important asset in every organization. When employers offer wellness programs to their employees they make it evident that they care about them and show them that they want to do everything they can to keep them in good health and optimal performance. Employees know when they are appreciated and valued as important parts of the organization. That knowledge is paramount in convincing employees to stick around.
