Health Care and Employee Productivity

Healthy, happy people are likely to be more productive

Healthy employees have 25 percent better job performance than less healthy coworkers. And they take 40 percent fewer sick days.1

But it's not just about work. Creating a culture of health and wellness helps people find and address health conditions. As people begin to make healthier choices, they can feel better and have more healthy days. This means they can enjoy fuller, happier lives doing what's important to them, including performing well at work.

This has a direct impact on your company's overall success.
