Bedford Park, Illinois (PRWEB) July 18, 2015
ACAenroll.com is hosting two free Employer Wellness Seminars on July 21st and July 23rd aimed at addressing ACA Wellness Plan Compliance and What’s Needed In the Real World of Wellness.
“Employees are the most valuable assets to any company. The welfare of the employee has a direct impact on the success of the company,” began Bill Hallberg, Chief Enrollment Officer, ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions (ACAenroll.com).
“The bottom line of an employee wellness program is that they provide the company with strategic advantages by investing money in a program that will bring them lowered expenses in return. Healthy employees tend to be happier more productive employees. By providing workers with these services, companies are improving wellbeing and job satisfaction, as well as raising retention rates,” remarked Hallberg.
An employee wellness program must be implemented correctly using thorough, company-specific research and planning. The program must also follow guidelines outlined by the U.S. Department of Labor, as well as the ACA. With the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), worksite wellness programs will become part of a national public health strategy to address the increase in chronic diseases, which are predicted to cost the US health care system an estimated $4.2 trillion annually by 2023. (1) ACA contains many new provisions designed to improve public health and wellness.
“With depth of changes that have taken place with the ACA, it is imperative that employers have a through understanding of the new guidelines put in place in regards to employee wellness initiatives. To assist employers have a solid understanding of the guidelines, the first half of the upcoming Employer Wellness Seminar will focus on ACA Wellness plan compliance presented by Larry Grudzien, a nationally known Affordable Care Act (ACA) expert attorney.
Employee wellness programs can benefit employers by:
- Lowering health care costs
- Reducing absenteeism
- Achieving higher employee productivity
- Reducing workers’ compensation and disability-related costs
- Reducing injuries
- Improving employee morale and loyalty
In order for an employee wellness program to be effective for both the employee and employer alike, factors such as budget, expected return on investments to deciphering the company’s involvement in the program must be clearly outlined. Hallberg continued, “We are fortunate to have Steve Van Der Watt, CEO, The Vitality Group lead the second half of the Employee Wellness Seminar. The Vitality Group is an internationally recognized health promotion program based on behavioral, actuarial and clinical principles. Mr. Van Der Watt will be sharing his insight on how to build and maintain an employee wellness program.”
