What if we were to tell you that a healthy, thriving workforce directly and significantly affects your bottom line?
Employers in the United States spend nearly $900 billion annually on healthcare benefits, and an additional $500 billion for illness-related lost productivity. The cost of a sick workforce is real:
- rising healthcare premiums for employers
- higher absenteeism
- poor employee morale
- an unmotivated, unhappy front line diminishes the customer experience
- lack of focus leading to costly mistakes or accidents
An investment in the health of your workforce is an investment in your business.
BRIDGING THE GAP
Companies implement corporate wellness programs for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s because they are invested in their employees’ wellness. For others, it’s a checkbox item in their benefits offering. Surely there are even a handful that have a program and don’t even know why. What they all seem to have in common is that their strategic vision and reality are worlds apart. Here at SPARK Wellness we bridge the gap.
The SPARK Difference
We take the time to evaluate the current state of wellness within the organization and understand what the ultimate goal is. We have several course offerings available, and can even design custom courses if none of those are the perfect fit for you. Our goal is to create the content that will best support your values, your people, and your business.
The Coach Approach
It has long been proven that health is more complex than counting calories or steps. Nutrition, sleep, stress, movement, and relationships are the main contributors to the overall well-being of a person. We believe that a well-designed corporate wellness program is robust, and reaches each of these key areas for our participants. Together, we co-create goals for each participant that are personal, attainable, and lasting.
