EMPLOYEE HEALTH

Health is an important factor in everyone’s lives whether you are a professional athlete, workman or business professional. It doesn’t matter if you have a desk job or are on your feet all day, your health is vital. As an employer you want to make sure your employees are healthy and active; thus ensuring your company’s number one asset is taken care of. Offering your employees and their families a corporate wellness option will pay off in a number of ways.

BENEFITS OF ACTIVE EMPLOYEES

1. CONTAINMENT OF HEALTH CARE COSTS

The majority of U.S. health care expenses can be attributed to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases and health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and asthma. Positive lifestyle changes, such as increased physical activity and a healthy diet, can often prevent these costly medical conditions before they arise.

2. INCREASED WORKPLACE PRODUCTIVITY

Workers who exercise on a regular basis tend to have more energy and be more productive while at work. As little as 30 minutes of physical activity several days a week can have a significant and positive impact on workers’ physical and mental well-being.

3. INCREASED WORKPLACE MORALE

Active and healthy employees tend to have a more positive and energetic outlook that can keep morale high within an organization.

4. DECREASED EMPLOYEE TURNOVER

Many employees view health promotion programs as an added perk that makes them feel valued and appreciated by their employer. Employees who feel valued are less likely to seek employment elsewhere, decreasing turnover and the time, energy and money needed to recruit, hire and train new workers.

5. DECREASED ABSENTEEISM

When an employee misses work due to illness, other employees must pick up the slack. Employees suffering from a chronic health condition are more likely to miss work than healthy employees. Helping workers make positive lifestyle changes to prevent these costly medical conditions from arising can reduce absenteeism and the drain it represents on company morale and resources.

IMPROVING FAMILIES HEALTH

The Edwardsville YMCA offers a very family-friendly environment. We strive to offer programming that is convenient for working parents. Allowing parents the opportunity to watch or even sometimes participate in their children’s activities, have drop-in childcare available to young children while they workout or even take a class of their own.

The entire family can benefit from an Edwardsville YMCA membership!
