Our sister company FOURNIER disAbility & Health Management Solutions brings together an array of healthcare options for the Health & Wellness of organizations big and small.
With employees spending an average of 40 hours each week at work, there is an increased need for the employer to provide long- term solutions to maintain employee wellness for the longevity of their business.
The United States started assisting employees in managing their health over 30 years ago. Here, in Canada, 65% of organizations do not have employee wellness programs in place. 75% of these companies state that they would like to have Holistic Health added to their services and 85% state that Holistic Health could reduce health care costs.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as, a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. FOURNIER Health has adopted this principle and is clearly reflected in their belief in the power of taking a holistic approach to Health & Wellness.
With 50% of the corporations profit margins being redirected back to the employee’s healthcare, employers are keen in recouping some of these costs and ensuring that their employees remain healthy for maximum productivity.
87.5% of the healthcare costs are due to an individual’s lifestyle. With this in mind, corporations are becoming increasingly aware of the burden they share with the government. For the past 30 years, the United States have been big proponents of Wellness Programs, however here in Canada, this trend is just beginning to emerge.
