Many employers are taking a proactive approach towards health programs within their work environments. Chronic disease such as depression and hypertension lead to a decline in the overall health of your employees, while increasing health-related expenses for you and your employees. All of this results in lower productivity and more missed days at work. This can negatively impact your strategic goals.
