Health Risk Change as a Predictor of Productivity Change

StayWell Research

The study, “Health Risk Change as a Predictor of Productivity Change,” was published at the Journal of Occupational & Environmental Medicine JOEM website.

StayWell authors and David J. Mangen, Ph.D.; have concluded that the present study showed that not only does health significantly relate to employee productivity, findings also demonstrate that the benefits of improved health on improved productivity are cumulative over time. This study affirms that effective population health management programs include supporting interventions for individual health habit change and to be most effective over the long-term, programs should also include an investment in culture of health within companies and organizations.

If organizations are to benefit from long-term productivity improvements, business leaders and health benefits planners need to be aware of age, gender and generational differences within their workforce.
