Workplace Health: Why Does It Matter?

Building strong workplace health and encouraging a healthy workforce can create a powerful work environment for your employees to thrive. A healthy workplace can lead to increased productivity, higher employee morale, less absenteeism and health-spend savings for both employers and employees.

Is Workplace Health Important?

If you’re an employer, that’s the question you have to ask first. How will help my company? Will I see positive ROI? What are the pros and cons?

All of those are justified questions to ask, but to address the big elephant in the room… Is it important? YES! Most employers don’t realize the importance, we’re going to tell you why it is and how it can help your company in this article.

Solution #3 – Biometric Screening

A lot of employers may be asking, “why would we offer biometric screening for employees?”

Over 50% of employees do not get their annual health screening, which makes your workplace an ideal location for them to quickly and confidentially have their physical health assessed to better understand their current health status. 

Plus, obtaining aggregate reporting on your workforce, identifies areas to enhance your wellness programming initiatives.

Screening employees doesn’t have to be difficult, just make it easy for them to do just that.

Since the leading cause of the death in the U.S. is cardiovascular disease, you can focus your employee health screenings on heart health. 

When screening your employees, make sure it’s the least invasive and most accurate method. That’s why we administer a finger-poke and have blood samples analyzed in a lab.

Workplace Health Matters More Than Most Realize

Too many employers don’t realize the positive impacts that workplace health can have on their business. This is why Kadalyst spends so much time and effort on workplace health education.

This is also why Kadalyst can help your company reach positive ROI while saving you money and helping your employees get healthier.
