This assignment requires you to:
Use online calculators to determine what impact wellness programs might have on an organization’s health care costs, absenteeism, and presenteeism. The assignment also shows the risks of doing nothing to try to curb those health insurance, absenteeism, and presenteeism costs.
To carry out the assignment, you are required to:
- Complete 3 tables—one each for Health Care Costs, Absenteeism, and Presenteeism.
- Use relevant data that you find from reputable sources for annual health care costs, number of employees, percent obese, and percent smokers. [If you cannot readily find actual data from searching sources, use fictitious data that seems realistic to you.] Select your own targets for percent obese and percent smokers.
- To utilize your quantitative reasoning skills, it is important you analyze, synthesize, and accurately report your findings in a 3-page paper (not counting the title page, reference page, or appendices).
- Feel free to use the same data for each table, but you should try to use examples of data that show significant differences when calculated.
- Follow this link to the calculators: https://www.wellsteps.com/roi/
