Travel Solutions and its parent company, Incentive Solutions, were recently named as one of the “101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in Atlanta,” and programs like this are why that that award were given. At the end of “Work On Wellness” the Travel Solutions employee who achieves the healthiest body weight, BMI, blood pressure and percentage of body weight will receive points that are redeemable on merchandise rewards. If the company as a whole loses 200 or more pounds they will then hold a drawing where one luck employee wins a cruise for two. Travel Solutions is partnering with Workout Anytime to ensure that all employees have free gym memberships and a good head start on the road to wellness.
Studies conducted by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation show that unhealthy employees use up 45 million avoidable sick days every year. It also shows that unhealthy employees cost companies like Travel Solutions up to $2,250 extra every year. 70% of all medical and healthcare spending is caused by preventable issues, so it’s easy to see how reducing these costs can significantly reduce costs for a lot of employers.
Steve Damerow, CEO of the Incentive Solutions Group of Companies, says “We think the nation has a real need for wellness incentive programs. Health is a critical issue right now, and since most Americans spend a large portion of their time at work, programs like “Work On Wellness” are hands down one of the best ways to begin combatting the issue. The program is just one segment of our employee engagement strategy, and it contributes not just to personal health, but also morale, productivity, and well-being of our entire operation. We’re expecting this program will be very successful. I’m proud to say that we never lose sight of the fact that at the end of the day our best assets are the ones who walk in the door in the morning and out the door in the evening.”
