Health Workforce: Lowering Costs, Improving Safety, Health and Productivity

In an infographic, Business Pulse demonstrates how promoting safe and healthy business practices can increase profitability and productivity. According to the data:

  • Presenteeism accounts for nearly two-thirds of the total costs of worker illness
  • Inadequate sleep leads to worker errors, low productivity and safety incidents which affects business profitability.
  • The economic burden of work-related injury is equivalent to 4 percent of the world gross domestic product.

FusionHealth works with companies to improve employee wellness and reduce organization costs  by implementing sleep health programs into their benefits plans. High quality sleep means more than just keeping employee more productive during the day – it also means staving off the chronic diseases, like heart disease, obesity and diabetes, that frequently keep employees away from work.
