YMCA for Employers
Organizations that value and promote a healthy lifestyle have an edge when it comes to attracting and retaining key people.
Healthy employees exhibit increased morale, productivity & retention. Physical activity improves moods and energy and decreases stress and anxiety. Active employees feel good about themselves and their work.
Health care costs decrease when employees live healthy lifestyles. According to the American Heart Association: “Poor diet, lack of exercise and other major risk
factors for heart disease and stroke are responsible for at least 25 percent of companies’ healthcare costs. Is it any wonder, then, that investing in the health of employees is one of the best decisions a company can make? By creating a wellness environment, your company can help lower healthcare costs and protect your most important resource — your employees. In fact, research shows that for every $1 invested in worksite wellness, companies can receive up to $3 in return.”
