I have long believed that the answer to our nation's health care crisis is prevention. And while government intervention will always be controversial, we all end up footing the bill when the nation is unhealthy. As the Corporate Research Group's blog put it, "[Those who] feel that it's nobody's business how people treat their own body have a strong argument as long as [they] pay their own medical expenses."
The good news is, there's a lot you can do as wellness professionals. Whether it's offering a seminar on healthy eating or organizing a health fair, you can steer your employees in the right direction and help your bottom line at the same time. So let's get started. There's no time to lose.
