Corporate Wellness Trend for 2017: Focus on Total Well-being

Posted on Tuesday April 18 2017

Not just Physical Health...

If you're following the trend (no pun intended) from the last two posts, then you know this trend also comes from Adam Sass's article in regards to the top corporate wellness trends for 2017.

As stated in the title and subtitle of this post, total well-being is more than just counting calories, and how many steps you walk or miles you run in a day.

Fiscal and emotional/mental health can have a huge impact on your health and well-being. And some would say emotional health is far more costly than physical health for employer groups.

“Emotional health accounts for $135 billion spent on health care every year,” says Jane Ruppert, Vice President of Health Services at Interactive Health, citing a research report prepared by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). “That’s nearly as much as the total spent on heart disease and cancer treatment combined. With 1 in 5 American adults experiencing some emotional health issue — particularly depression — in any given year, corporations should be prioritizing it in their worksites.”

And remember, stress can be a huge factor in affecting your mental health.

Studies have shown that stress can lead to actual physical sickness.

Below are just some of the issues that you could experience from stress:

  • Common colds
  • Weight gain
  • Slower healing
  • Sleep dysfunction
  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • Ulcers & other stomach problems
  • Shoulder, neck, and back pain

HR managers and health fair planners, keep these stress-related issues in mind and be sure to focus on total well-being when selecting vendors for your health fair / wellness fair.

It can go a long way with keeping your insurance cost down and making a positive and lasting impact on your employee population.

It's not just about that number on the scale!

Thanks for reading and please feel free to share this post with any HR managers, benefits pros, and health fair planners that you think could benefit.
