This course introduces financial professionals to “real” wellness ROI measurement, which usually yields the opposite result from what your Human Resources department is telling you (and what they in turn are being told/sold by their consultants and vendors).  As the department that is ultimately responsible for healthcare spending, you can’t allow yourselves to be “shown savings” that don’t exist. 

We demonstrate exactly how to question those "savings" and determine if, indeed, there is any value in this expenditure, which – including incentives, program expense, screening, consulting fees, management time, and extra doctor visits and testing – can easily exceed $600/employee/year. We also discuss whether medicalizing the workplace may even be harmful to employees and highlight how to closely supervise the entire organization on this topic with the tools, knowledge and links this course provides.

Learning Objectives

  • Estimate total spending and benefits from wellness and related activities
  • Recognize how to critically analyze savings reports presented by vendors and benefits consultants

Great presentation to make you think about the different costs/benefits and pitfalls of wellness programs which seem to be very common with at least large companies in the US these days.
