Description
Employees with poor health behaviors develop elevated health risks and eventually acquire common chronic diseases. Poor employee health causes low productivity, high health care costs, elevated disability, and worker’s compensation costs. Poor employee health has a direct impact on the financial bottom line.
Employee wellness programs are one solution to improving employee health. Published research studies show that these programs can improve health behaviors, lower health risks and reduce employee-related expenses. There is also compelling evidence that wellness programs can reduce absenteeism and presenteeism. You will review multiple case studies of how worksites that have implemented effective employee wellness programs have improved employee health and seen a positive ROI. You’ll also see how your own worksite can use the ROI studies to estimate the ROI for your own wellness efforts.
In this presentation Dr. Steven Aldana, CEO of WellSteps will share the evidence that shows that effective employee wellness programs improve the bottom line and should become a core business strategy. Dr. Aldana has published over 70 research articles and has written five books on the connections between healthy living and disease prevention. Harvard School of Public Health says his most recent book, The Culprit and The Cure “is better than the best medicines”. As one of the nation’s leading experts on worksite wellness Dr. Aldana will help you understand and be able to make the business case to start a wellness program.
No other HR offering can have a bigger impact on reducing employee related expenses and impact employee morale.

Thank you Stephen. Your presentation was engaging and informative. I especially appreciated the wealth of data that you shared in easily accessible charts. And I was inspired by the concept of creating an insulated culture of wellness behaviors in areas where the larger culture promotes unhealthful lifestyles. -- Anne Davis 4 / 5
