PureSafety is offering a free webinar, “How Chronic Diseases Hurt Your Business – And What You Can Do!,” on Feb. 17, from 12 pm to 1 pm, CDT.
Many employers are starting to realize that poor personal health conditions amongst their employees are driving up their health insurance costs. Did you know that these same poor health conditions may also be increasing workers’ compensation and labor costs?
In this presentation, Dr. Brian J. Caveney will review why 2/3 of all health care costs are due to lifestyle and the cost associated with these issues. Further, he’ll discuss why your organization must focus on wellness initiatives to compete, and what is working around the county. He’ll also highlight research that has demonstrated how certain aspects of health and wellness programs can improve your risk profile and reduce your costs.
In this webinar you will learn:
- Why 2/3 of all health care costs are due to lifestyle
- The root causes of poor health that must be addressed to have an impact
- Why your organization must focus on welness to compete
- Legal and logistical challenges in wellness programs
