How Wellness Programs Help Small Businesses Win

If your business is considering establishing—or growing—a corporate fitness program for employees, join the club! While corporate fitness programs are nothing new to large corporations, more and more small- and medium-sized businesses are realizing the benefits of providing easy access to fitness for every member of their staff.

“Everyone benefits,” says Bill Kemnitzer, Vice President of commercial sales for Gym Source. “The corporate clients we work with — regardless of the size of their business — unanimously agree: An employee fitness program results in reduced sick time, better work performance, camaraderie among the staff, and improved energy and enthusiasm for a job well done. It is the one employee benefit for which the dividends to the company exceed their cost.”

According to an annual report by the Kaiser Family Foundation, close to 75% of companies that provide health benefits—regardless of size—also offer some sort of wellness program, a trend that continues to tick upward. Doing so achieves benefits for not just employees, but employers, too: Insurance costs and absenteeism both markedly decrease when corporate wellness programs are embraced by management.

Plus, the most preventable types of disease—including such chronic illnesses as heart disease, stroke, hypertension and obesity—account for 75% of the total healthcare costs incurred by businesses (according to the CDC), making preventative care a wise corporate investment.

Bill and his commercial Gym Source team are ready to help design and install your in-house wellness program. “The fitness solutions available at Gym Source are tailor-made for a business environment,” he says. “We have an enormous selection of top-ranked, premium fitness equipment designed to withstand intense use in a multi-user setting. Plus, we’re the only number you’ll need to call when your equipment needs servicing—which we’ll expertly do for as long as it’s installed at your facility.”
