Since 2004, employers have seen a 33 percent increase in payable employee health care costs and premiums. A major strategy employers should consider to lower these costs is annual preventive biometric screenings. Benefits to employers include:
- Helping employees detect preventable diseases and serious health conditions earlier;
- Educating employees about lifestyle changes to prevent the onset of health risk factors;
- Healthier employees are more productive employees due to less time out of the office because of illness and other health-related absences.
The aggregate of these benefits is a workforce that is more informed about, and aware of, the health risks they may face in the future. Employers who invest in preventive screening and health education today are more likely to spend less on medical treatment tomorrow.
