Studying the outcomes of wellness initiatives reveals a range of potential financial returns, but results are commonly reported in the range of $3-$5 in savings for every $1 spent on a wellness program. Investing in Employee Wellness provides direct financial benefit in at least three major categories:
"It gave me something to strive for and work toward.”
"The goals I achieved were increased by knowing I would have to report them to my coach.”
"Got lab work today - lowered my cholesterol from 137 to 97 in last 3 months!!!”
"I feel I achieved what I achieved because I had someone to hold me accountable."
"She was a great coach who was a good listener as well as a great encourager. She had a good sense of insight as well as foresight."
"I truly look forward to our appointments ... [the wellness coaching] has benefited me greatly... I can't thank you enough for your assistance with me! It really helped me find my balance in life and you have been a pleasure to work with!"
"I appreciate the weekly phone call with my wellness coach. Also in between weekly calls having access to my coach through emails when needed, either to celebrate my progress or problem solve when things are tough."
