Investing in wellness programs for employees can have a significant positive impact on a company’s bottom line. According to studies, these programs can reduce medical costs by an average of $3.27 per employee and absentee costs by an average of $2.73 for every $1 spent. Inactive employees can also cost a company $1,500 extra per year on healthcare costs. In contrast, corporate wellness programs can have a return of up to $10 for every dollar spent.
