OSHA reports that musculoskeletal disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, tendonitis, herniated discs, and low back pain account for $15-20 million dollars in workers' compensation claims annually, as well as 34% of all lost workdays from illness and injury. A review of corporate health and management programs by Goetzel, et al (1999), reported return on wellness program investment averages $3.14 and is estimated to be as much as $13.00 per dollar spent. (www.osha.gov) Preventable illnesses make up approximately 80% of the burden of illness and up to 90% of health care costs. The good news is that a study of 30 work site health promotion pro grams indicated 100% had positive health outcomes and 29 out of 30 were cost effective. (www.preventdisease.com)

Why Designing Wellness is for you:
  • Promote Self Responsibility
    Designing Wellness provides individuals with the tools they need to take responsibility for their own health. Our bodies were not necessarily made for the work we do, whether the job be sedentary, repetitive or heavy labor. Individuals can prevent or treat many injuries by making healthy choices for themselves instead of blaming their job duties or lifestyle. When workers take responsibility, they stop focusing on how their job is negatively impacting their bodies and start focusing on ways they can make positive choices for their bodies.
  • Reduce Absenteeism
    There are many factors that influence a person's health and well being. Through education and the training we provide, Designing Wellness will help individuals reach their optimal health while minimizing injury, illness and pain. There are many small changes in lifestyle that can improve one's health and reduce absenteeism. Also, receiving appropriate treatment in an appropriate time frame can significantly reduce the number of days an employee takes away from work.
  • Decrease Health Care & Company Costs
    Wellness education has been proven to reduce health care costs and health insurance premiums for companies. Injury and illness can happen on or off the job. Designing Wellness will provide education to decrease workers' compensation cases and shorten recovery time, should an injury occur. If a company is to maximize its profit potential, it needs healthy employees.
  • Increase Productivity
    Healthy employees are more productive. Concentration and energy are improved when individuals are feeling well. Stress and strain are minimized when individuals' bodies are well balanced. An employee that feels his or her well being is taken care of develops dedication to their workplace and a positive attitude about the work they do, increasing their overall output.
  • Increase Workplace Morale
    When individuals understand steps they can take to feel their best, they understand that their health is in their hands. Providing this knowledge to your employees is a tangible demonstration of the care and concern you have for them. Ensuring their wellness is a No. 1 priority breeds loyalty and responsibility, making your workplace a happier and healthier one. This will also mean less turnover and training of new employees, an invaluable benefit of wellness training.
