A Win-Win for Employer and Employee
Improving employee health is beneficial for your staff and it also helps improve your bottom line. Researchers predict a 42 percent increase in chronic disease cases nationally within the next nine years, resulting in $42 trillion in additional treatment costs and lost economic output. Healthier employees are not only happier; they also have lower absenteeism and reduced medical costs compared to their less healthy counterparts.
Preventive health screenings and education delivered through CARES are effective tools to help keep your employees healthy and reduce rising healthcare costs associated with health conditions such as:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
