Workplace Wellness

A Healthier Bottom Line

Few things weaken a business like chronic illness. A recent Gallup survey reported that full-time workers in the U.S. with chronic health conditions or are overweight or obese miss an estimated 450 million work days annually. But local companies like Aiken Electric Cooperative, Bridgestone and Carlisle Tire have figured out how to reverse the trend. They’re utilizing Workplace Wellness Services from Aiken Regional Medical Centers’ (ARMC) Business and Industry Health division.

Healthy habits at the office go home, too

Because people spend more time in the workplace than anywhere else, it’s an ideal venue for promoting healthy habits. “Employees who participate in Workplace Wellness Service feel empowered to pursue fitness goals,” says Trey Nuckols, ARMC’s Manager of Business & Industry Health. “They become motivated to achieve weight loss objectives and improve overall health.”

Healthier employees. Everyone profits

Several Aiken employers who’ve incorporated Workplace Wellness Services, including the City of Aiken and Aiken County Government, report seeing tangible, measurable benefits, including:

  • A 22% reduction in sick days
  • A 40% reduction in the modifier rate to calculate Workers Compensation
  • More employees who use preventive care
  • Significant savings in health insurance costs

AppleThey state that employees recognize the wellness program as a valuable benefit. And by combating disease and work-related injuries before they happen, the program focuses on preventative medicine. Leading to more work days, and more productive employees.
