How to mitigate chronic health issues with Workforce Health solutions

At the National Safety Conference in Houston, Texas, it was easy to see that employers focused on the truly important details: the health and well-being of their employee population.
Throughout the two-day conference, employers dropped by Examinetics’ booth to discuss hearing testing, respirator fitness, wellness exams and more.
With our experience and market data, we’ve noticed a growing link between productivity, absenteeism and overall workforce health needs. To change the problems you face, we believe these concerns must be addressed today.

The problems you face today

Corporations are acutely aware of the high cost associated with increased rates of absenteeism due to chronic health issues and its crippling effect on productivity.
Currently, 84% of the nation’s $2.7 trillion in annual health care spending is spent on people with chronic and/or mental health conditions. These chronic health issues are the common thread in industries struggling with absenteeism, lack of productivity, and excessive spending.

The problems you will continue to face tomorrow

American workforces are steadily aging. By 2020, studies show that one in four American will be over the age of 55. With the aging employee population, chronic health issues also increase. Each year, heart disease, cancer and diabetes negatively contribute to lack of productivity and increased absenteeism.
To mitigate growing costs, employers shifted the costs healthcare to their employees. However, that tactic seems to have backfired. The heavy cost burden caused employees delayed or avoided care, therefore, worsening clinical outcomes, which negatively influences productivity.
With aging workforces, increased health care costs and epidemic levels of chronic health issues, American companies continue to experience significant challenges producing at desired levels of output and capturing the profit margin required to be successful.
