Health & Wellbeing Investment Matters
Fewer than 3% of Americans meet the criteria for living a “healthy lifestyle.” This covers not smoking, eating a diet that follows nutritional guidelines, and exercising at least 150 minutes each week. Also, it includes having a BMI below 20% for men and 30% for women.
Additionally, chronic disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. And it’s the leading driver of health care costs across the nation.
The good news – integrated health and wellbeing solutions work. By applying a whole-person, integrated approach, employees get the care and support they need, when they need it. As a result, they’re more empowered and motivated to take an active role in their health and wellbeing.
Employers win too! In fact, when employees are more engaged, the value from wellbeing investment is higher. Employers see positive impacts on health care costs, productivity, employee satisfaction, and recruitment and retention. And an integrated solution connects data across the continuum of care, providing deeper insights for more informed decisions about employee benefits.
