Evolving Employee Benefit Strategies

Finishing a plan year stronger and healthier.

The race to save lives and healthcare costs.

Corporate Wellness Initiative

The cost of health insurance continues to climb, outpacing wages and increasing anxiety for both employees and employers about the rise of medical costs. In fact, over the past decade, employer-sponsored health insurance premiums have increased 119 percent, and approximately 50% of corporate profits now go for health-care costs.

But smart employers are implementing new ways to reduce health-care costs without jeopardizing their ability to attract and retain top workers.

Organizations are actively promoting health and wellness at work through incentive programs, healthy lifestyle activities, and wellness workshops presented by health coaches in programs such as Lunch-and-Learns, after-work fitness classes and onsite health fairs.

Today, 90 percent of companies offer incentives to encourage healthier lifestyles among employees1 – up from 50 percent just two years ago. Companies as varied as Google, Target and Johnson & Johnson are spending millions each year on comprehensive preventive-healthcare programs, and estimates that without these programs, their medical bills would be as much as four times higher.  Plus, incentives, preventive programs, coaching sessions and wellness workshops have long-term effects: healthier, more productive employees.
