New York, NY (PRWEB) June 27, 2012
Insufficient exercise, poor diet, the fast pace and high stress levels of many work environments are major contributors to increasing health care costs and the rising incidence of chronic disease (diabetes, heart disease, some cancers).
The declining health of the workforce strains business productivity and profitability and imposes greater out of pocket health care costs on individuals.
The Milken Institute estimates lost economic output of over $1 trillion associated with seven of the most common chronic diseases. Yet many of these diseases can be avoided or mitigated through better nutrition and fitness.
Fitness is a lifestyle choice and Employee Health & Wellness programs can create a culture that reinforces making healthy choices.
"Eighty percent of employees agree that lifestyles/weight management programs belong in the workplace" - STOP Obesity Alliance
Corporate Health and Wellness programs have been shown through studies to improve employee morale, reduce healthcare costs, and increase productivity and employee retention. But in today’s complex “office” environment of multiple/global locations, remote employees and frequent business travel, delivering a health and fitness Initiative that can meet all employees needs is a challenge.
CoreFitnessByJana is committed to providing individuals, Corporations and their employees affordable, accessible and effective exercise programs by bridging the barriers to fitness: time, access, money and knowledge. By employing technology, appropriate and effective online fitness programs can be made available to all employees and their families whether they work in the office, remotely or on the road.
So as June and National Employee Wellness Month come to a close, CoreFitnessByJana applauds the over 90 U.S. organizations and their more than 40,000 employees who contributed to this important event.
