Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets
According to national statistics, 75 percent of U.S. adults have gambled in the past year.1 Surprisingly, their wagers extend well beyond poker tables, slot machines and sports. The 2014 Aflac WorkForces Report reveals many are rolling the dice on something they can’t afford to lose – their health.
One way to hedge your bets on employee health is through work site wellness programs. A recent article on employee wellness programs reports that employees who have access to wellness programs report missing less work and stay with their employers longer.
Discerning employers know a healthy workforce is more satisfied, loyal and productive. Play a winning hand by equipping your workforce with information, resources and access to comprehensive benefits options.
