Successful corporate wellness programs Experience
The cost of employee health care to companies is increasing yearly at an alarming rate. The conventional method of directing resources largely to treat employees who are sick or injured is no longer economically sound. This old way of thinking is clearly one reason for the spiraling pharmaceutical, absenteeism and other health care expenses most organizations face each year. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of preventable chronic diseases in the workplace is creating a perfect storm of more sickness that drives more costs.
No company will be successful in a globally competitive world with anything but healthy and productive employees. This is where the eWellness Portal comes in. It helps employers create environments that encourage employees to stay well in addition to taking care of them when they get sick. eWellness Portal empowers employees to become self-leaders and decrease their risks through a variety of wellness products and services. In a nutshell, the focus of the eWellness Portal is both sickness prevention and successful employee wellness promotion. Thus our successful health & wellness program aims to both lower employee risks and prevents disease as well as helping healthy employees stay healthy. The return on investment of quality Corporate Wellness is undeniable.
Our corporate health & wellness program can do
Quality Corporate Health and Wellness has to be radically different than stand-alone, piecemeal wellness programming such as onsite blood pressure checks, weight loss incentives or lunch hour fitness walks, often implemented with limited success. A great Wellness Program has to be driven from the top, integrated into the company culture, be purposeful, strategic and must be evaluated annually.
The eWellness Portal Successful corporate workplace employee health & wellness programs fulfill these criteria and are also cost-neutral – when decreases in pharmaceutical claims, absenteeism, and overall health care costs are considered. That is, a company investing in the eWellness Portal employee health & wellness programs has lower health-related costs on one side of the economic equation while realizing increased health-related productivity on the other side of the equation. There is no downside!
Below is a sample of the successful health program profile of two companies that invested in the eWellness Portal Corporate Wellness program showing health risks at baseline and after 1 & 2 years measured via the eWellness Portal MindBody Health Risk Assessment & screening
Why eWellness Portal is better than others
The company I had a higher risk profile, with more employees at high risk relative to Company II with a healthier profile and fewer employees at high risk. Changes in risk over 2 years after the comprehensive and incentivized eWellness Portal Corporate workplace health & wellness program are outlined for both companies. As shown above, there was a significant improvement in the health profile of both companies, with both increases in the number of employees at low risk (38% to 62%) and decreases in the number of employees at high risk ( 45% to 29%) for Company I. Similar improvements were found in Company II, with increases in low risk status from 45% to 60% and decreases in high risk status from 45% to 29%.
It is well established through research and industry reports that as employees get healthier, employer costs decrease. The cost savings for both companies are projected below:
These cost savings estimate the potential annual savings that may be realized by reducing health risks in each organization. And if the actual health costs are available, these estimates can be easily verified through direct measurement. corporate workplace employee health, health and wellness programs for the employee, Successful corporate wellness programs

So resources and funding cannot be the limiting factor; every company can put some type of wellness in place.
Because Good Health is Good Business !
Below are 5 simple steps for a scalable and goal-oriented program.
Corporate Wellness in 5 Steps
Step 1 – Determine Need: A Health Risk Assessment provides a wealth of information to both employer and employees. It creates awareness and helps set goals
Step 2 - Examine the Data and Develop Plan: This is a collaborative process between management and employees, so the wellness plan is embraced by all.
Step 3 - Communicate: A wellness program is as successful as its communication plan. And this should be generated by employees with the full support of management.
Step 4- Incentivize and Reward: Behaviour change is difficult initially, so rewarding employees to get healthier gets buy-in. And incentives do not have to be monetary.
Step 5 - Track Results: Repeating the HRA at the end of the year gives you the comparative data you need to track results and make adjustments to reach your company goals
