There is a growing focus on work site promotion of wellness except in the small business marketplace (90% of all businesses have fewer than 50 employees), where budgets are particularly tight and the "return on investment" (ROI) is hard to measure. That is frustrating to me. One might just as well ask, "What is the ROI for buckling your seat belt every time you get in your car?"
The best way to reduce health care costs is to not get sick. Promoting wellness is the right thing to do. And through free resources such as those available from The Wellness Councils of America (WELCOA), costs can be minimal.
