I’m sure most of us are in dismay over rising healthcare costs. Salaries are static year after year while escalating health services continually dig in to our well-deserved earnings. US healthcare costs doubled from 1990 – 2001 and are projected to double again by 2012. Fortunately, there is a way to reduce corporate costs and losses that benefit both the employer and employee. It’s called Corporate Wellness. We here at New Performance Nutrition are firm believers that the health and longevity of an individual translates into greater performance and success on the corporate level.

                     Every one of us longs for that feeling of invigoration – that feeling of an acute mind, upbeat persona and healthy body. However, the American workforce today is tackling hazardous health issues such as obesity, tobacco addiction and stress – not quite the definition of invigoration. The average American works 47 hours a week and with a workload so heavy there better be a keen mind and strong body capable of sustaining those long hours. How fantastic would it be if your workplace could contribute to your feelings of rejuvenation? The truth is it can. The latest health research shows that corporations who utilize wellness programs enjoy a more harmonious office environment, reduced stress, less human error and more beneficial relationships among co-workers.

            So a word to all employers who are seeking to reduce costs yet desire to increase productivity at the same time – Corporate Wellness is the key. It can get you on the way to greater savings and greater returns. Statistics show that employers who invest in Corporate Wellness programs have the opportunity to see a return of $3 -$10 in savings per dollar spent. These savings are reflected in absenteeism, workers comp, disability, medical costs and on-the-job inefficiency. Corporate Wellness has proven a 28% reduction in sick leave, 26% reduction in health care benefit and 30% reduction in workers comp claims and disability. That’s incredible! Not only does it help prevent losses due to illness and time spent absent from work, but it also greatly enhances an employee’s endurance and ability to be productive while working those long 47 hours! You have to admit that it is very rare to find an opportunity where cutting costs benefits both the employer and employee.

            During our last 15 years providing wellness to the community, New Performance has had the opportunity to help many large corporations, such as one biotech leader Amgen for 6 years, by establishing corporate health behaviors and goals. The benefits to both employer and employee are remarkable as each individual employee participates in a personalized program based on his or her nutritional needs.  This healthy nutritional influence on individual wellness creates positive energy and satisfaction that is contagious throughout the office! That why I love what I do.  And that’s why we provide Corporate Wellness programs at New Performance. I know that many companies are looking to cut back during these rough economic times but many executives are not aware that nutritional counseling through Corporate Wellness is actually a great investment both, in your company and your employees. Our corporate nutrition wellness programs are designed, and proven, to help increase productivity, health and total well-being dramatically in clients and create a thriving corporate setting.

Corporate Wellness

January 19, 2009

What Would You Do to Gain a Healthy Competitive Advantage?

Would you take advantage of an opportunity to:
> Increase productivity
> Boost efficiency
> Reduce absenteeism
> Cut insurance premiums
> Improve morale
> Grow the bottom line

These are among the benefits possible through a Corporate Wellness Program. NEW PERFORMANCE provides Individual Nutrition Programs specially designed for your corporate setting.

You know what needs to be done. You might not know, however, that the health of any company is dependent in large part on the health of its employees. One research study showed that a healthier workforce produces as much as a 25 percent increase in productivity.

NEW PERFORMANCE’S Corporate Wellness Program can help your employees achieve peak performance through better nutrition, fitness counseling, and pharmaceutical grade and homeopathic supplements

NEW PERFORMANCE can help your company’s employees become healthier, and as a result more productive.

If employee health is not a “front burner” issue for your organization, then consider that the rocketing costs of health care are echoed in the costs of health benefits and insurance plans across the nation. Ignore the health of your workforce and you are taking your chances in a world where:

Ø       According to the U.S. Surgeon General more than 130 million Americans are overweight, another 60 million are obese and 9 million are severely obese. Obesity is linked to Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, depression, sleep apnea, arthritis and dozens of other serious health conditions. Related care costs are $120 billion annually and rising.

Ø       Cardiovascular disease is the county’s top killer, according to The American Heart Association.

 

Ø       40% of women and 25% of men are dieting.

 

Ø       About $33 billion is spent annually in the US on commercial weight-loss programs and products.

Ø       Combined with medical and workday-loss costs, this number rises to over $100 billion annually.

 

These health problems have consequences that go well beyond medical costs. The economic and financial consequences should have employers screaming for help.

Working with highly regarded and experienced medical and nutrition professionals, NEW PERFORMANCE has developed a program that includes on site, one-on-one counseling and educational seminars for your employees on simple, yet effective, lifestyle changes that can profit everyone. Better nutrition based on sound medical information is at the core of NEW PERFORMANCES approach. We provide consultations and workshops in a professional, relaxed and friendly atmosphere that encourages participants to choose healthy lifestyle changes for lifelong benefits.
