The lion's share of new contracts in 2007 was in the company's health management division. HealthFitness championed a new emphasis on 21st century health benefit design that takes a holistic approach to designing benefits for the entire employee population -- from fitness programs for those who are well, to health management programs for those who are at low to high risk for chronic disease. New clients included health plans and universities in addition to employers in the manufacturing, high tech and health provider sectors.

"The vision for 21st century health benefit design provides tools so employers can support a workplace culture of health," said Gregg O. Lehman, Ph.D., president and CEO of HealthFitness. "The traditional focus on providing services only for those who are ill ignores the poor health habits that put workers at risk for chronic disease. By providing tools to address preventable behaviors such as poor diet, physical inactivity and tobacco use early, employers can help employees lead healthier, more productive lives."

Employers who embrace Lehman's vision of 21st century benefit design can expect to see improvements in the bottom line. A study(1) released in late 2007 by the National Business Gr
