5 BENEFITS OF EMPLOYEE HEALTH PROGRAMS
CONTAINMENT OF HEALTH CARE COSTS
The majority of U.S. health care expenses can be attributed to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases and health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and asthma. Positive lifestyle changes, such as increased physical activity and a healthy diet, can often prevent these costly medical conditions before they arise.
INCREASED WORKPLACE PRODUCTIVITY
Workers who exercise on a regular basis tend to have more energy and be more productive while at work. The average office worker’s efficiency decreases 50% for the final two hours of the day, while regular exercisers work at full efficiency all day, amounting to a 12.5% increase in productivity.
INCREASED WORKPLACE MORALE
Active and healthy employees tend to have a more positive and energetic outlook that can keep morale high within an organization.
DECREASED EMPLOYEE TURNOVER
Many employees view health promotion programs as an added perk that makes them feel valued and appreciated by their employer. Employees who feel valued are less likely to seek employment elsewhere, decreasing turnover and the time, energy and money needed to recruit, hire and train new workers.
When an employee misses work due to illness, other employees must pick up the slack. Employees suffering from a chronic health condition are likely to miss more work than healthy employees. Helping workers make positive lifestyle changes can reduce absenteeism and the strain it places on company morale and resources.

Getting started is easy! Simply choose an open enrollment date that’s convenient for you and your employees. YMCA staff members will take employees through the initial sign-up process, on site at your company, so they are ready to begin using the Y’s facilities immediately.
Employees are encouraged to try the Y during a designated open house just for your company. Employees can sign up during that event or any time for an entire year from the company start date. Proof of employment by company ID or current pay stub is required to gain entrance to the open house. After the enrollment event, your company’s point of contact will be given all the information and materials necessary to enroll additional employees.
