Employee Wellness Programs, How do They Affect You?

Many companies are getting into the practice of beginning Employee Wellness Programs. The thought behind it is that healthy employees cost less for the employer and will be more productive. What is not considered is the cost it takes to get the employees started in the Wellness Programs. There are doctor’s visits and other costs associated with “getting well” that have to be eaten by someone. This article explores that question and posing the idea that we aren’t actually saving ourselves any money by entering in to these programs.

The cost of the program is usually handed down to the employee.


What we can gather from this story is that we should always invest in our health and health programs. Throwing out a program just because of one study isn’t the right approach. However, understanding that exercise progams have caused a lot  of change in people’s lives is important.
