Has your company experienced a bottom line impact due to unfocused, unenergetic employees, likely struggling with stress, health or work-life balance concerns? If the answer is, "Yes" you are not alone.

One study found that at least one-fourth of healthcare costs incurred by working adults are attributed to changeable health risks, such as diet, tobacco use, and lack of exercise. Some companies have reported that health costs use up 50% or more of their corporate profits. In fact, the indirect costs of health-related matters, such as increased absenteeism and decreased work productivity, can result in two or three times the amount of direct medical costs.
