Does your company struggle with keeping its employees productivity up? Do you have a wellness program in place for its employees? According to a recent Employee Benefit News article, these two questions go hand-in-hand. Employee productivity is likely to decrease when employees’ health risks increase. Here are some stats from the article.

  1. Employees who have high-risk health factors average 77% more annual absences than low-risk employees.
  2. Smokers cost companies $326 in annual net lost productivity. Following that lifestyle risk factor, high blood pressure costs $230 in net lost productivity.
  3. Health conditions, like cancer, bronchitis and depression also cost employers in lost productivity. The study determined that net productivity losses were $158-$1,601 more per year for each person with a health risk or condition.
