Company Health Promotion Initiative ROI

Company Health Promotion Initiative ROI

For well over a decade, studies have been showing the effectiveness of Employee Health Promotion Programs. For every dollar spent on Employee Health Promotion Programs, the returns have been cost savings of between $2.30 and $10.10 in the areas of decreased absenteeism, fewer sick days, decreased WSIB/WCB claims, lowered health and insurance costs, and improvements to worker performance and productivity.
