Employee Fitness Programs for Risk Management and Cost Reduction
Did you know that 70% of all costs associated with sickness are caused by preventable illness? The return on investment for companies with wellness programs can be up to $3.27 for every dollar invested. A study of 192 companies using physical activity promotion as the basis of their wellness programs found improvement in 7 out of 10 targeted risk factors which resulted in medical savings of 59% and productivity gains of 41%*. We help you understand your employees’ health risks so you can decrease your costs.
Why Our Employee Wellness Programs Work
Your team is full of individuals – and we’ll treat them that way. Each person has unique needs, likes, and dislikes that we’ll take into account when creating lifestyle plans. All aspects of the program are supervised by a physician:
Initial Assessment: Includes body composition analysis, biometric assessment, goals assessment, dietary analysis, exercise readiness analysis, fitness assessment, and optional metabolism testing. This is a critical step as it determines the best approach to maximize success while minimizing risk for each individual.
Exercise Program Development: The key to a successful fitness regimen is tailoring it to each person’s unique likes, dislikes, and exercise needs. We’ll create something effective (including strength, cardio, and flexibility training) that each individual employee can enjoy doing, and can include optional training sessions.
Dietary Program Development: Just like exercise, eating guidelines are only effective if they are followed. Our dietary plans are customized to each individual’s tastes and needs, making them easy to follow.
Weight Management Program: While our exercise and dietary programs are designed for long-term wellness, they can be tailored to include weight loss until employees reach a healthy weight.
Stress Management Program: Wellness in the mind is just as important as the body. Your Synergy Corporate Wellness Team will include Wellness Coaches who provide stress management techniques and help your employees maintain focus and accountability for their individual goals.
Lifestyle Modification Plan: A strict diet or training schedule may get results, but it’s not a sustainable long-term lifestyle. Instead of hard work or deprivation, we focus on making changes that your employees can adopt for years to come.
Online Tools: We use a mobile application and online portal to help track progress, and both are compatible with a wide range of fitness tracking devices. Employees can sign in at any time to visualize and log components of their customized plans and log action items.
Flexible Coaching: Our Wellness Coaches will be on-site with your employees weekly for individual appointments to track progress, provide motivation, and adapt programs as necessary. We also include coaching communications in our online and mobile portals.
Monthly Reassessments: We’ll meet one-on-one with each employee to track progress and modify plans as needed. All employees will also receive the Synergy Fitness and Wellness newsletter each month.
Risk Improvement Reports: Employee health data is confidential, but we provide your company with monthly reports so you can see how your employees are engaging with the program and what their challenges are. We also provide group data on weight loss, BMI, body composition, strength gains, blood pressure, and heart rate. Each year, you will receive an Aggregate Health Risk Improvement Outcomes report and an optional Health Risk Assessment Aggregate report.
