Social Support: Impact on Health and the Bottom Line
Date:10/6/2009

MIDLAND, Mich., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- As waistlines and healthcare costs continue to expand, organizations face an ongoing challenge -- how to change unhealthy employee habits that affect sick time, productivity, and medical expenses. One of the most effective ways to engage employees in workplace wellness programs is having them work with colleagues, family, and friends to reach their goals.

Backed by more than 40 studies, Social Support: Impact on Health and the Bottom Line (www.hesonline.com/sswp) highlights the benefits of how social support can affect behavior change. "With retreats, team-oriented projects, and other group activities, employers are in a prime position to create an environment of social support," said Dean Witherspoon, Health Enhancement Systems (www.HealthEnhancementSystems.com) President and Founder. "The data is clear: when individuals are accountable to a team or get encouragement from others, it has a big impact on their well-being -- the more support they have, the greater chance they'll achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle."

As outlined in the paper, there are different levels of support -- and each can help participants be successful, which is good news for the bottom line. "With a strong social support network, studies show individuals can enhance performance, reduce stress, boost self-efficacy, and be better at problem solving," adds Witherspoon.

A supportive, inspiring cultures helps organizations, wellness programs, and participants all to thrive.
