Poor diet and lack of exercise are responsible for at least 25% of healthcare costs incurred by working adults.  Is it any wonder, then, that investing in the health of employees is one of the best decisions a company can make?   By creating a wellness environment, companies can help lower healthcare costs and protect its most important resource —employees. In fact, research shows that for every $1 invested in worksite wellness, companies can receive up to $3 in return.
