Corporate Fitness Programs
Employing Healthy People
Corporate fitness programs have been around since the mid-1970’s but have been gaining in popularity since “Corporate America” realized that there are numerous advantages to employing healthy people. Studies have proven that a health and wellness program, backed by the employer, will significantly save businesses thousands of dollars by:
- Reducing health care costs
- Increasing productivity
- Decreasing sick days, absenteeism and worker’s compensation/disability
- Improve employee morale, loyalty, camaraderie and team building
The ROI of Corporate Fitness
Proper nutrition, an appropriate exercise routine and living a healthy lifestyle will improve a person’s environment which will ultimately change their attitude and confidence.
Economically, having healthy, happy, productive people is crucial to the bottom line. Because competition can be fierce, having employees performing at their best should be a top priority. Your employees are your most important asset, introducing them to a healthier lifestyle generates success in all aspects of their lives. If an employer shows they have a vested interest in an employee’s physical and mental well-being, employees are more likely to be loyal and committed to the betterment of a company.
Managing Strength & Conditioning for a Pro Team is the Ultimate in "Corporate Fitness"
Bill Ross incorporated the same exercise and stretching techniques when he was with the Kansas City Royals. As the strength and conditioning coach, it was his responsibility to prepare the team for the beginning of the season and keep them healthy throughout the remainder of the season. In addition, he also helped prevent injuries, motivated the team psychologically and in some cases was directly responsible for their individual successes.
Training a sports team is the ultimate in corporate wellness. Each athlete (employee) is worth millions of dollars. Each game (product) is worth millions of dollars. If BRFS can keep a major league team injury free, imagine what Bill Ross Fitness Solutions can do for your business.
Owning a professional sports team parallels that of owning a business. The athletes are the employees and their health is crucial to producing the best outcome for the employer. In business, employers should strive to help their employees be as healthy as they can be. Healthy employees are more productive; they have a better mental outlook on the job and typically are more willing to work as a team for the common goal.
