At first sight, it may seem difficult to quantify the return on investment of a health in business program. These comprise often indirect, intangible or subjective benefits for which there are not yet any measurement tools.
But it’s proven: investing in a well-targeted, effective health in business program results in real savings and benefits that go beyond only saving money.
Healthy employees are absent less often and a safe environment limits work accidents. Absenteeism definitely hinders productivity, but beyond direct costs linked to it, employers must take into account all indirect costs that may arise: decline in employee morale due to increased workload, delays in projects and decline in consumer satisfaction.
There is significant productivity loss when an employee continues to work, but is not able to work at full capacity (slower work, more errors made, etc.).
