Healthcare costs are taking a proportionally larger slice out of small to mid-size businesses profits. Most of these costs are associated with reacting to health related issues instead of preventing the issues in the first place. Implementing a program that can help control or reduce these costs is a necessary consideration for a financially prudent organization. A well-designed fitness and wellness program, specific to the needs and wants of the employees, with a strong nutritional and fitness component will directly meet this need.
A 2010 Harvard Business Review article found that wellness programs, of which fitness is a component, can return as much as six times their cost to the companies that sponsor them. Another 2010 review by a separate team of Harvard researchers, published in the journal Health Affairs, concluded that “medical costs fall by about $3.27 for every dollar spent on wellness programs and that absenteeism costs fall by about $2.73 for every dollar spent.”
