The cost of insurance premiums and employee medical claims is at an all time high and continues to rise. Productivity losses related to personal and family health problems cost employers $225.8 billion annually, and business leaders are being called upon to make changes at the workplace in order to curb rising costs. Many are turning to workplace health programs to help employees adopt healthier lifestyles and lower their risk of developing costly chronic diseases. Only worksite health promotion stands out as the long-term answer for keeping employees well in the first place.
