The Costly Truth of Obesity
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we talk a lot about the correlation between wellness and safety at Assurance – it’s even in our tagline: Minimizing risk. Maximizing health.® Healthy employees are safe employees. And safe employees often mean lower workers’ compensation costs. But what’s the true value of healthy employees?
Our latest white paper compares the cost of healthy employees to those who are obese. Obese employees are more likely to get injured while at work, costing employers nearly nine times more. What do those costs entail? We explain in detail, along with plenty of reminders for why employers should be concerned and what they can do to implement change.
