Facts & Statistics
Lower health-related costs
According to a 2012 Gallup State of the American Workplace study, employees with high overall “well-being” have 41% lower health-related costs compared with employees who are struggling and 62% lower costs compared with employees who are suffering.” Another study by Willis, Towers, Perrin supports this finding that more employers enjoy major financial returns and competitive advantages through higher employee engagement, productivity workplace morale.

While keeping at-risk employees healthy is critical, the shorter-term workplace-wellness ROI lies with the chronically ill, who suffer from costly conditions like advanced diabetes, heart conditions, and cancer. In a typical population, they consume at least 50% of a company’s claims expense, and focusing on them can make or break your claims ROI.
Potential to reduce insurance premiums
Enrolling the chronically ill in disease-management programs that ensure they get appropriate care has the most potential to reduce insurance premiums. For example, a program that preempts 25 unnecessary emergency department visits can easily save $50,000, while preventing four inpatient stays can save at least $100,000. Savings like these are not unrealistic for a 2,000-employee company.
