How health impacts your bottom line

Healthcare costs continue to rise. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 86% of our nation’s healthcare costs are tied to health problems like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity that are largely preventable. Beyond healthcare costs, poor health also affects workplace productivity in the form of absenteeism, presenteeism, workplace injuries and disability.

 

Creating a culture of wellness

Most of our waking hours are spent at work, making the workplace an ideal setting to create a supportive culture of health and empower employees to take control of their health. By creating a workplace environment that champions wellness and encourages positive behaviors such as healthy eating, regular physical activity, and stress management, employers can attract, engage and retain employees who are healthier, happier and more productive, resulting in a better bottom line.


With the help of Lantana Health, we’ve seen a reduction in our population’s overall level of obesity. That decrease has meant that the rate of increase in our insurance costs has slowed significantly. This year’s increase was nearly half of last year’s.
