The key to keeping employees present and more productive

article by Kaiser Permanente

The health of a company’s workforce can have a major financial impact on profitability. Unlike many health care organizations that focus on the individual, Kaiser Permanente looks at the entire workplace. Kaiser Permanente views it as an opportunity to build a culture of health and believes that a strong support system enables employees to make significant and lasting changes. That can reduce overall costs while boosting morale and performance.

Kaiser Permanente has a 4-step model providing a blueprint for a company’s overall strategy. Implementing workforce health can have a healthy impact on workers and a company’s bottom line:

Employer cost. Providing support for chronic conditions and preventive care services to reduce health risks can influence medical costs.

Productivity and performance. More than 90% of business leaders said employee health had a significant influence. *

Employer of choice. When employees feel supported, they tend to stick around.

Walking the walk. Kaiser Permanente offers a wealth of innovative, motivational programs and tools.
