Research indicates the fitter your workforce, the fatter your profits. That’s because a fit employee body has higher productivity, greater job satisfaction and lower absenteeism.
DukeUniversityresearchers found the value of lost productivity due to health problems far exceeded the medical costs. The study also notes that the per capita cost of full-time workers with a Body Mass Index greater than 40 exceeds $15,500, a figure primarily driven by presenteeism, or lost productivity on the job due to health problems. Another study estimates employers pay $602 per worker annually for unanticipated absenteeism, primarily due to job-related stress. And according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, back injuries—the most common reason for absenteeism in the general workforce after the common cold—cost employers billions of dollars annually.
