4 Benefits of A Corporate Health Program

4 Benefits of A Corporate Health Program

If you’re a corporate executive or business owner, it’s probably no surprise that helping keep your employees healthy and well isn’t just good for their wellness — it also has a measurable impact on the health of your bottom line.

Internal medicine specialist Dr. Melita Tate and the team at Grassroots Healthcare in Tulsa, Oklahoma, believe in giving companies and their employees access to excellent healthcare — without breaking the bank. 

That’s why our team offers an affordable, effective corporate health program that lets you help your employees enjoy better health for only $50 a month for each employee. Benefits include:

This affordable wellness alternative ensures your workers get the ongoing care they need without the stress of complicated health insurance. Here’s a closer look at four major benefits of a corporate health program.

1. Fewer sick days

One of the biggest benefits of a corporate health program is lower rates of employee absenteeism, or fewer sick days. Studies show corporate health programs help workers make lasting healthy changes, such as:

These healthy changes help employees miss fewer days of work. This not only affects your employees’ health but your bottom line, since lower rates of absenteeism lead to lower costs for your business.

2. Increased productivity

One of the most overlooked ways to increase employee productivity is a focus on the health of employees. Research continues to show corporate health programs that promote and support employee wellness improve productivity. 

Poor productivity — being at work but struggling to get work done — increases the number of mistakes employees make, which wastes employer time and money. And employees with lower overall health quality are 2-3 times less productive than healthy employees. 

Corporate health programs encourage employees to focus on good health behaviors and help workers get the care they need, increasing work motivation and promoting productivity. In fact, a recent study found these programs effectively add one productive work day to each month. 

3. Greater job satisfaction

There’s no way to avoid all job-related stress. But having a corporate health program that puts your employees in contact with the medical care they need helps workers get the resources needed to deal with stress in healthy ways. 

When employees feel better, they can focus better at work — both as part of a team or individually. This means employees tend to be more creative, collaborative, and innovative, fostering better work performance and greater job satisfaction. 

4. Keep (and attract!) more employees

Studies show organizations that emphasize the health and well-being of their employees have better rates of employee retention and lower overall turnover. By offering a corporate health program, like the one through Grassroots Healthcare, you show your workers you care about their well-being. 

In today’s competitive employment market, having a corporate health program also helps attract new talent to your workspace. A recent survey indicates prospective employees value corporate health and wellness programs, which can help you attract more talented candidates.
