A recent study by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - USA) has determined that loss of productivity due to employee absenteeism can cost a company as much as $1,685 per employee per year. Due to this, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of employers providing health and wellness programs to their employees. While these programs aren’t as prolific in Canada, there has been an increase in the number of companies utilizing these services and for a good reason, considering the costs that wellness programs can help alleviate. Kamloops Healthcare Services offers on-site testing services to kickstart your company’s health and wellness program right at your place in Kamloops.
Some of the more common components of wellness programs include testing an individual’s cholesterol, body mass index (BMI), glucose levels and body fat percentage. The tests performed provide opportunities to find markers of potential issues before they become too large.
