Convenient, cost-effective and clinically proven.
Employees within a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) range are linked to lower healthcare costs and premiums, spend less time away from work and are more productive. Overweight employees, on the other hand, tend to have higher healthcare costs and lost productivity due to absenteeism. The National Institute of Health says 2 out of 3 adults are overweight or obese*—and you can bet they’re on your payroll.
