“Good health IS good business.” –Paul Dreschler
Arlington Strength is ready to help you in many ways, from offering your company a corporate discount program to creating a multi pronged approach to help change the culture of your workplace. By partnering with you to help promote behavioral changes, working with perceived logistical barriers and even help you create appropriate incentives to support a complete cultural shift
According to a study published in the National Center for Biotechnology and Health, American companies are increasingly becoming aware of the importance of creating a culture of health and wellness in the workplace. It is well known and documented that there are “Ten Modifiable Employee Risk Factors” and employees that partake in any combination of seven or more of these factors, on average, cost employers 228% more in health care costs vs those that lack participation in the same risk factors.
The most effective way to tackle these risk factors is to partner with a healthcare provider that can build a fundamentally sound strength and conditioning program for your employees. By working together to open the gateway for your employees, we are able to immediately attack the most basic behavior (“No Exercise”) which will have a positive carry over towards the other factors. Through exercise an individual can expect to lower stress, cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure. This in turn will start the wheels turning towards a more body positive diet and image which will help reduce obesity, depression, alcohol and tobacco consumption. Once all these factors are in play and trending in a positive correlation then you’ll find yourself with buildings and departments full of happy, strong and healthy employees. This means, less health care costs for the employer as a whole and as an added bonus, a healthier workforce is more likely to be more productive. So the employee and the employer both win out in this strategy.
