Corporate Wellness Programs Save $400 per Employee In the past I’ve outlined wellness programs that corporations are currently using to improve corporate morale, community, and health. I’m also happy to hear that many of these companies have continued to stick with these programs even during this current economic slump. Plus, we now have a good amount of data to show that these wellness programs actually work and are saving companies money!

Check out some of the data presented on November 11, 2009 by Emory University researchers at the American Public Health Association meeting in Philadelphia.

“For the moderate or intense intervention employees, the average days absent due to illness per year decreased from 3.9 days in 2006 to 3.4 days in 2007. Researchers found that average absenteeism days at the moderate or intense sites were 1.5 days lower than at the standard sites between 2006 and 2007.

Cost savings due to reduced absenteeism were estimated at $414.90 per employee per year.”
