Workplace Vitamins(TM) Provides Companies a No-Cost, Corporate Wellness Vitamin Program
GREEN BAY, Wis., Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Newly-founded Workplace Vitamins is a corporate wellness vitamin program that offers businesses a variety of high-quality dietary supplements at discounted rates.
As the cost of healthcare increases, corporate wellness becomes a growing topic of discussion for many organizations. In 2011, the annual premium for employer-sponsored family health coverage was over $15,000–a 9% increase from 2010 to 2011.(1 )
Many businesses believe that prevention is the key to healthcare savings; a comprehensive corporate wellness program could potentially result in decreased pharmaceutical spend, a reduction in days lost due to illness, and increased productivity.
Matt Sullivan, Sales Director for Workplace Vitamins, explains, “The workplace is becoming a hub for wellness promotion, with businesses providing services like primary care, pharmacy, physical therapy, nutrition counseling, diabetic education, and fitness centers. A voluntary employee benefit surrounding nutritional supplements is naturally the next step.”
Workplace Vitamins is a low risk, no cost, no-touch HR benefit program that addresses relevant health topics within an employee population.
Once an organization is opted in to the program, a free custom web portal is provided where employees can order products that support weight management, blood pressure, stress, blood sugar, and foundational health.
The premise of the program being that by supporting healthy living through a comprehensive corporate wellness program, an organization is taking the right steps to driving down the cost of healthcare for their business, employees, and their families.
Impending new healthcare legislation may even require companies to cover certain preventive services at no cost to their employees.
Sullivan explains, “Although many people are concerned about the implications of the new healthcare law, there is a real opportunity for companies to come forward and turn this into a positive by showing their employees that they will be taken care of. A corporate wellness vitamins program is a real cost savings for employees, which becomes even more important as so many people will be starting to build Health Savings Accounts for the first time.”
