Employers Believe Employee Health is Critical

I found this study on the web site of the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, and it got me wondering. If employers are so concerned about their employees' health, why aren't they doing more to support it?

Seventy-two percent (72%) of executives interviewed said that keeping employees health is crucial to business success.

The most common signals (to executives) that an occupational nurse should be hired include high injury or illness rates, high absenteeism among employees, increases in workers' compensation costs, and increased government mandates/compliance.

The Rossiter System -- an in-house program that gives employees the skill and knowledge to keep each other health -- can reduce injury/illness rates, reduce absenteeism and bring down medical and workers' comp costs: all without hiring anybody extra at all! Why not let your employees keep themselves out of pain and working productively?
