Why should employers care about the health and wellness of their employees?

Out of control health care costs are a given, but poor employee health can also have a significant impact in other areas, such as absenteeism, productivity, and “presenteeism” (being physically present at work, but functioning at less than full capacity due to illness, stress or other personal issues).
The following panels will give you some insight into some of the statistics associated with an unhealthy workforce.  Prepare yourself because the figures are staggering!
