Jenny Craig Corporate Wellness
Why is corporate wellness important?
Research shows that obesity can contribute to higher healthcare costs. For example, research indicates that medical costs for an obese person are 42% higher than for a person of normal weight.1 Promoting a healthier workforce means savings for both the company and employee.
Over two-thirds of adults in the United States are either overweight or clinically obese. Combined, this constitutes over 133 million Americans. Obesity rates have more than doubled in the past 20 years.2
Losing just 5-10% of body weight for someone who is overweight or obese may significantly reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood cholesterol, osteoarthritis and some cancers.3
