Health and wellness benefits continue to be a significant way for employers to stand out from the pack. In the pandemic and post pandemic world, health is top of mind for everyone. Offering progressive and innovative programs not only gives companies a competitive advantage in the tight war for talent, but it is also a lever by which employers can foster resilience and reduce stress and absenteeism. Here are four reasons why vitamin education and benefits could be a great addition to your company’s greater corporate wellness strategy.
1: Increased savings
The average employee spends about $465 annually on vitamins out of pocket, and they are not typically reimbursed by health insurance or FSA/HSA programs for daily vitamins. Our goal when we work with employers is to make vitamins more affordable to their workforce. Delivering discount codes on a high-quality, personalized multivitamin saves employees money and resources.
2: Assisted navigation
Existing corporate wellbeing programs may address prescription drugs, but many times neglect over-the-counter supplements. They also may have components around food-based nutrition, but fail to address vitamins. Consumers are forced to navigate the retail landscape with limited education and professional support on products that may not be aligned with their underlying health and lifestyle needs. Any one who has tried to figure out what vitamins to take, knows this can be a frustrating and overwhelming process. Providing employees with assistance in finding the right daily vitamin blend saves time and eases confusion. A physician created custom multivitamin can save everyone time, money and lots of uncertainty. A vitamin quiz is a great way to help determine individual needs.
3: Greater physical and mental wellbeing
A recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll found that nearly half (45%) of adults in the United States report that their mental health has been negatively impacted due to worry and stress over the virus. Nutrition and depression are intricately and undeniably linked, and that is where vitamins come in. Not only can vitamins help with stress and anxiety, but also with other health-related issues, including immunity, fatigue, and chronic headaches.
4: Improved productivity throughout the day
The entire world is adjusting to new work habits amidst the COVID-19, and every employer is looking for ways to keep their team at peak performance. Nearly 80% of employers are concerned about productivity and business success due to coronavirus, according to a recent Monster poll. Vitamins are a great start to engaging in a healthier and more productive lifestyle. Building a personalized vitamin into your morning routine kicks off a schedule for improved health, wellness and productivity throughout the work day.
