Screenings for a Business
Why should my Business have a Wellness Screening?
Healthy employees are happy employees. According to the Center for Prevention and Health Services, an estimated 25–30% of companies’ medical costs per year are being spent on employees with excessive health risks.
Companies that have programs to help employees stop smoking and promote health screens have 28% decrease in sick leave, a 26% reduction in health care costs, and a 30% reduction in workers compensation and disability costs.
The short term investment in employee health can help your company save thousands in healthcare costs.
