3 The value of employee health Improving health not only controls expenses, but also protects, supports, and enhances human capital. Increasingly, business leaders are realizing that the health of the workforce is directly related to the health of the bottom line. Ronald Loeppke, MD, MPH Healthy employees miss work less often, perform at higher levels, and cost less in medical claims, disability, and workers compensation. Poor health drains city budgets Employee health costs hit Washington s cities hard over the past decade, rising 194 percent from 1999 to Medical costs are just the tip of the iceberg Productivity losses from absenteeism and impaired on-thejob performance (presenteeism) cost employers 2 to 3 times more than direct medical costs alone. Wellness works for employees Research confirms that health promotion programs help employees reduce health risks. Fewer risks mean better health and enhanced quality of life. Promoting health in city workplaces is a win-win investment. Employees win with better health. Cities win with reduced medical costs and increased productivity. And now, because we believe strongly in the value of health promotion, EBT members who earn the 2011 WellCity Award will be rewarded with a 2% premium discount. Glenn Johnson AWC Board President Investing in wellness pays off for employers Health risks drive health care costs and impair productivity. Reducing risks across the workforce helps employers save an average of $3 to $5 for every dollar invested. We re here to help! AWC s health promotion staff helps Employee Benefit Trust (EBT) members design & deliver comprehensive wellness programs that work. Call on us today!
