Healthcare Consulting Services

Numerous studies show that healthy workers are happier, more productive workers who incur lower health care costs. For example, a recent Harvard University study showed that for each dollar spent on wellness programs, companies saved $3.27 in health care costs and $2.73 in absenteeism costs.
