On average, Americans working full-time spend more than one-third of their day, five days per week at the workplace. Maintaining a healthier workforce can lower direct costs such as insurance premiums and worker’s compensation claims. It will also positively impact many indirect costs such as absenteeism and worker productivity.

 

FO Fitness offers a combination of educational, organizational, and environmental activities designed to improve the health of employees. Impact of FO Fitness workplace health programs:

  • Workplace health programs can lead to change at both the individual (i.e., employee) and the organization levels.

  • For individuals, workplace health programs have the potential to impact an employee’s health, such as their health behaviors; health risks for disease; and current health status.

  • For organizations, workplace health programs have the potential to impact areas such as health care costs, absenteeism, productivity, recruitment/retention, culture, and employee morale.

 

With FO Fitness Worksite Health Promotion programs, employers, workers, their families, and communities all benefit from the prevention of disease and injury and from sustained health.
