Employers providing on-site health care services report that those services helped to lower their overall medical costs, increase employee productivity, and improve employee health. The National Association of Worksite Health Centers' 2014 Benchmarking Survey indicates that on-site clinics are able to meet or exceed employee health care and financial related objectives. Corporate wellness programs have been used for decades in many other countries as a way to improve corporate culture, reduce absenteeism, and increase employee satisfaction dramatically.
Services provided through on-site wellness programs, such as acute and preventive chiropractic neurology, medical massage, structural integration, and office ergonomics evaluations often reduce overall corporate medical costs. Further, on-site healthcare is generally more effective at meeting employers' financial goals, especially among larger companies that employ between 1,000 and 10,000 full-time workers. The number of large corporations in the U.S. that offer these corporate wellness services is approaching 44% as of 2015.
Studies show that 70% of the employers that provide on-site corporate wellness programs experience substantial improvements in the overall health of employees, while 75% said their employees had become more engaged in preventative personal healthcare practices.
