In following on our recent pieces on fulfilling resolutions (here and here), as well as our recent piece outlining workplace wellness trends for 2017, we came across this useful infographic from the Healthcare Trends Institute.
They write: “Wellness. It’s been a priority for employers, and a resolution for employees. With the costs stemming from chronic disease, work related injuries, stress, and worker disengagement topping $2.2 trillion each year, and lost time from chronic disease reaching $153 billion per year, employers are finding that wellness is becoming an even larger part of their playbook to decrease employee healthcare costs while promoting engagement and good health in the workplace.”
“Knowing this, investment in wellness is growing. Among employers offering wellness plans, 84 percent of them are looking to expand upon them in coming years.”
