In case studies of dozens of firms and other organizations, Overman finds that even modestly-budgeted programs for improving employee health can produce a substantial return on investment, and not only through health insurance savings and lower absentee rates. In one of her more absorbing chapters, Overman explores how Wellness programs further increase productivity by reducing "presenteeism," the cost to companies from sick employees who show up for work but produce little or nothing.
Overman provides concrete and specific suggestions for organizations of all sizes. She tells you how to start small with Wellness programs, how to tweak them to your company's needs and then, if you want, how to grow them to cover more employees and even family members.
"Next-Generation Wellness at Work" should be read by every employer.
