Why Employee Health Matters
6 out of 10 Americans are living with at least one chronic disease (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and obesity) and chronic disease is a leading driver of missed employee work days.
80% of obese adults suffer from secondary chronic conditions, which directly increase their missed work days relative to their normal weight colleagues. While normal-weight women miss an average of 3.4 days annually due to illness or injury, extremely obese women are absent 8.2 days, an increase of 141%.
Employers whose workforce participates in Health Management Programs realize savings as great at $136 per employee per month largely due to a nearly 30% reduction in hospital admissions.
Such workplace programs can lead to 25% reduction in healthcare costs, workers’ compensation & disability management claims, and absenteeism.
Employees who engage in Health Management Programs lower their personal out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, become healthier, and demonstrate improved employee satisfaction.
Efforts to help employees manage chronic illnesses saved $3.78 in healthcare costs for every $1 invested.
This is why well-respected companies (Johnson & Johnson, GOOGLE, PepsiCo, CitiBank) invest in employee health programs and activities.
In fact, in the PepsiCo wellness program, researchers found that “efforts to help employees manage chronic illnesses saved $3.78 in healthcare costs for every $1 invested in the effort’’.
We are Physician-Driven & Research-Based Empowering Your Employees to Improve Their Health by Incorporating Delicious Whole-Food Plant-Based Meals into their Diet.
The Fresh Physician Solution for Workplace Health
The Fresh Physician has:
Extensively reviewed the recent medical literature, with thousands of research papers studied, and has incorporated the impressive body of information into a program to positively impact employee health.
Created a comprehensive program that has a multi-faceted approach to health through nutrition and lifestyle. •The CDC has defined that the most effective approach to workplace wellness uses “interventions that address multiple health issues at the same time, which is more effective than addressing each single health issue separately”. •A large research study showing the best long-term result for sustained weight loss of any program ever studied used a two-pronged approach with education on whole-food plant-based eating as well as cooking and preparation instruction. And this is just what our seminar, eating guides and video series were created to emulate.
Compiled information that will affect a broad range of health problems, including most of the major chronic lifestyle diseases. •The whole-food plant-based (WFPB) way has been shown to have the best long-term results of any plan for weight-loss. •The WFPB way of eating can actually reverse coronary artery disease (no other diet or medicine has been shown to do this), and has been proven to reverse type 2 diabetes, prevent cancer occurrence and recurrence, lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and significantly decrease symptoms of depression.
Designed an approach that is so broad reaching that it positively impacts 11 of the 18 categories of workplace wellness in the 2019 CDC Worksite Health Scorecard.
There is no other single health change that can offer all of these benefits!
