Help your clients boost employee productivity

In a recent study with The Economist, we learned that 38% of U.S. employers rank fatigue, stress and burnout as the largest barriers to business success today.* That’s why all employers should take note: a healthy workforce is essential as they look toward the future.

Employees are the heart of your clients’ business. To support their well-being, your clients should:

  • Understand the health of their unique employee population
  • Establish a culture of health by creating a supportive and healthy work environment
  • Embrace innovations and new digital solutions to improve workforce well-being

Well-being programs do more than improve employee health.

It’s no secret that well-being programs do more than improve employee health. In fact, they also boost productivity and help your clients’ businesses and the economy grow. Your clients should approach employee well-being as an investment: research shows that every $1 spent on integrated care can see $6 in medical cost savings** – that’s a win-win.

Your clients may not only help their employees but also their own bottom line.
