Did you know, that if an individual does the following five things, they typically spend 33% – 50% less on health care costs in their lifetime:
- Walking or light exercise 30 minutes per day
- Eating healthy
- Not smoking
- Having a waist size less than half their height
- Drinking alcohol in moderation
As an employer, that means providing and promoting a workplace wellness program can motivate employees to make healthy choices around these five areas of health. The result can include health care savings, more engaged workers, and possibly – lower risk of injury.
