Reach employees early. Save costs.

In most organizations, over 50% of the total healthcare costs are due to presenteeism, which is the loss of productivity due to a health related issue. Your employees may be showing up for work, but are they functioning at an optimal level committing their best energy to their work or are they functioning at a diminished capacity because of high stress, physical inactivity, poor nutrition, or inadequate sleep?

An organization is only as good as its people. People are only as good as their minds, bodies, and hearts allow them to be. If their health is compromised, so is their ability to innovate, relate with others, and solve problems. Good health is characterized by vitality, a sense of aliveness that makes all human endeavors possible. Good health is not only a desirable attribute for individuals to be and to feel their best; it’s also imperative for organizational well-being. Health is a critical business issue essential for both individual and organizational sustainability. If you’re concerned about the well-being of your workforce, we can help.

Unfortunately, employee health is seriously threatened in most organizations today. Through most of human history, the biggest challenge to our health was infectious diseases caused by bacteria and viruses. In the modern world, our biggest challenge is from self-imposed lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, obesity, and smoking and these trends throughout the world are increasing at an alarming rate.

Synergy at Work is available on an hourly or project basis to organizations that are concerned about rising healthcare costs; prolonged stress; increasing turnover; or low employee satisfaction – all possible indications that the health of your employees is at risk.
