With the recession still lurking, many companies have cut costs. However, companies are not eliminating their work-site health and fitness programs to save costs. As the President of N2SHAPE, Inc., I have received more inquiries for on site health and fitness programs in the past six months than ever before.
The cost of health care is constantly increasing, and the health promotion programs are expected to have a beneficial effect on the morale of the employee, to provide some offset to reductions in benefits, and to provide a way to improve productivity.
Individual, optimal programs should be developed for each company, as no one program meets all situations.
