Informing and inspiring good employee health decisions everyday!
Cubicle Wellness is an low cost, email health and wellness series that is based on the premise that: 70% of health care costs are associated with chronic disease – most of which is preventable. For most individuals, a healthier life is achievable through a series of small decisions they make everyday.
The health of our population is declining… 65% are overweight; over 30% obese. 24 million with diabetes 21% smoke cigarettes 27 million with heart disease
and the cost of poor health is rising… The cost to employers of employee health insurance has surged 31 percent.** Recent estimates show that employers spend 200 to 300 percent more on the indirect costs of poor health than they do on health benefits.* Since 2004, employee share of healthcare cost increased by 42% far outpacing the rate of wage increases**
Prevention is key--70% of health care costs are associated with chronic disease – most of which is preventable.* Wellness programs will fit into any health care system. Companies that commit to a culture of good health can reduce their health care costs by at least 20%.* Ongoing communications are critical to maintaining healthy behavior. Americans increasingly are looking to employers for leadership in health and wellness. What Can We Do? As the government attempts to reform the health care payer system, employers are recognizing that it is their best interests to take steps to improve employee health.
The Challenge Changing behavior and improving health is challenging—for both employers and employees. It can be time consuming and overwhelming. And let’s face it—the message is essentially the same regardless of how it is delivered. If it was simple we wouldn’t be looking at the levels of heart disease and diabetes we just cited. Lose weight Exercise more Stop smoking Eat a healthier diet
