Measuring ROIParticipation: The easiest to measure.Satisfaction: Another easily measured variable.Behavior changes: Better lifestyle choices.Biometrics: Blood pressure, BMI, body weight and cholesterol are great targetsProductivity: Absenteeism measuresMedical claims: 25 to 40 percent of all medical insurance claims are avoidable through prevention, early detection and the reduction of modifiable health risk factors.
  16. 16. It’s all connected.Wellness is no longer a “nice to have”; it’s a business strategy.Healthy employees have higher levels of engagement and productivity.

  17. 17. Chief Wellness OfficerPeople must live healthier lifestyles, but they need help. They spend most of their time at work, so HR has a great opportunity to help them. What’s more “human” than helping people get healthy?Wellness is a valuable growth strategy.
