Think employee wellness programs don’t make a different in people’s lives? Well, think again. Four employees told CBS Money Watch just how much their company’s wellness program has made a difference in their lives.
Once such person is Michael C. De Lucia of Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, who said he was “completely transformed” after a 12-week program of healthy eating and exercise. Steve Purkapile at Van Glider in Denver, Co., says he lost close to 50 pounds during a six-month weight-loss challenge, began to exercise regularly and lowered his cholesterol without the use of medication.
If you reach even a small percentage of your employees, it will make a difference in their lives and their performance on the job, adding up to a “win-win” for everyone. Time to see the bigger picture and longer range view and make the investment now.
