Average health care costs per employee in the U.S. have now reached more than $11,000 a year. In response, 43% of employers now offer incentives to encourage participation in “biometric screenings” (checking blood pressure, weight, cholesterol, tobacco use, etc.) and 30% offer incentives to engage in healthy lifestyle activities in the workplace.
The McDougall Immersion Live-In Program has been teaching employees to live healthy, productive lives – and contribute to more productive workforces – for over 20 years.
Advanced Study Weekend Interview with John MackeyJohn Mackey, co-Founder & co-CEO of Whole Foods Market recently spoke at Dr. John & Mary McDougall’s Advanced Study Weekend in Santa Rosa, CA.
Cut your Healthcare Costs in Half
Between 1999 and 2001 the McDougall Immersion Program was applied to three separate groups of employees at Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Minnesota. During this time we studied the participants and documented a reduction in blood pressure, body weight (17%), and cholesterol levels (8%) over a one-year period. Medication usage was also reduced or eliminated. The medical benefits of these results are extraordinary and they all translate to lower health care costs. The claims data from Blue Cross/Blue Shield documents an average reduction in costs of 44% for each of the three groups.
In 2010 we began McDougall Immersion Programs for the employees of Whole Foods Markets. Two years later, at one of our Advanced Study Weekends, John Mackey (the co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods) reported substantial savings for his company. He was so impressed with the results that he predicts global acceptance of programs like these in the coming years.
Now is the time. Here is an opportunity to help your company achieve greatness.
