Obtain High Level of Employee Satisfaction
A supportive environment provides employees with encouragement, opportunity and rewards. A culture of health that supports work site health promotion might have such features as healthy food choices in their vending machines, a no-smoking policy and flexible work schedules that allow workers to exercise. A workplace that values health will celebrate and reward health achievements. This type of environment results in higher level of overall satisfaction for all employees.
Lower health care costs allow employers to direct capital resources to improve the overall compensation and benefits package. Lower health care costs can also free up resources that can be used for capital improvements and equipment, which can help to bring in more business. This scenario tends to result in higher morale and an overall better working environment.
