Welcome back guest blogger Linda K. Riddell. This time, she offers practical advice to achieve what all employers want: more, better, faster wellness results. Enjoy, and share your thoughts in the comments. —Kelley M. Butler
With mounting pressure to do more with less, one can easily lose sight of what makes all human (and business) activity possible — health. The best tactics to maximize health and thereby boost profits are not to be found in the obvious places. In fact, if you only look in the headlines and the fads (including whatever your insurer wants to sell you this year), you may very well be charging off in the wrong direction.
Many programs that vendors promote have shaky science behind them, or, worse, bogus results proving their worth. For example, you should immediately put up your guard when a vendor talks about “undetected claims costs.” These are, allegedly, dollars that would have been paid but for the vendor valiantly preventing them.
