Having healthy employees adds up to better productivity, fewer sick days, and lower health insurance rates. The heart disease, diabetes, and depression that can result from a lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet are dangerous for employees, and expensive for employers. But when it comes to reversing unhealthy habits, most people don’t know how to begin. Luci Gabel is hired by companies across the nation to provide workshops, presentations, exercise classes, and social support groups that help employees take the first steps in achieving fitness and wellness.
Do these corporate fitness programs work? A 21 year study of research at the University of Michigan found that wellness programs do in fact save money for corporations who are proactive in caring for the fitness of their employees. In fact, year-round health programs tend to achieve the greatest benefits, observing a savings-to-cost ratio of more than $3 to $1 in medical insurance, absenteeism, short-term disability and productivity.
Fitness initiatives can be as small as a lunchtime talk, or as large as an ongoing class or contest. Luci can travel to your place of business, or arrange for a venue to host your event. Each program is tailored to the needs of your company.
Experienced as manager, director, and consultant for five-star facilities, Luci knows what it’s like to have little time to exercise. She uses her own advice to stay fit and on top of her game and she can relate to the typical challenges we all face. She’s helped employees of large and small organizations to get healthier and fit, and she can do the same for yours.
