From Research to Practice: Healthfitness, Eastman Chemical Company Case Study Demonstrates Real-World Health Gains and Productivity Savings
Date:1/24/2008

ison of employees who participated in Eastman's Healthy Steps program with non-participants showed that these employees:

Lowered their BMI 6 percent more;

-- Lowered high blood pressure rates 9.7 percent more;

-- Lowered cholesterol 13.4 percent more;

-- Had 14 percent higher job satisfaction; and

-- Reported 34 percent higher on productivity measures.

Lehman will outline the key steps to creating a culture of health that engages both the C-suite and employees during a 90-minute audioconference Jan. 30, "Creating a Culture of Health and Moving Toward the 21st Century Benefit Plan Design," hosted by Workplace HR & Safety. This new corporate culture of health seeks to manage short-term and long-term costs by targeting younger workers with poor health habits and lifestyle choices, heading off potential chronic health issues that will negatively impact baby boomers, and anticipating the needs of an aging workforce. To register for the audioconference go to http://www.workplacemagazine.com/Audio/hc/Audio419.asp.

During the audioconference, Lehman will outline:

-- Elements of 21st century benefit plan design;

-- Winning strategies to engage the C-suite and employees to promote better health; and

-- Assessing ROI resulting from a culture of health.

"The value of investment in employee health is not just about reducing health care costs, but also about increased productivity and reduced absenteeism," Lehman said. "It's about engaging employees with accountability and long-term health education strategies they can incorporate into their daily lives for years to come."
