Omni OpenHouse Direct Combines Efforts with Retensa to Create Healthier Companies
New York, NY, March, 2006 – 4.3 million employees recorded cases of injury or illness at work in 20041. As the health of America’s workforce declines, more attention is turning towards keeping employees healthy. According to employee retention experts at Retensa, employee health and wellness is now unequivocally correlated with employee turnover. Therefore, Omni OpenHouse Direct (OHD) and Retensa have created a joint venture to address these issues and create awareness on the relationship between employee retention and workforce health and wellness.
Recent findings show individuals who participate in corporate wellness initiatives average 28% reduction in sick leave absenteeism, 26% reduction in health costs, 30% reduction in workers’ compensation and disability management claims costs. A decrease in employee health and wellness across companies and its link to an increase in employee turnover opened the door for this opportunity to work with each other. “Companies who show their employees they care about their health and well-being, through in-house health programs, tap into one of the secrets of employee retention and ultimately increase productivity and morale,” stated the Director of Sales at OHD. This partnership is expected to help educate companies on how to promote a wellness culture that encourages improving health with a focus on strategic retention initiatives. For companies, this means their ability to understand, customize, and encourage an atmosphere where their employees can practice a healthy lifestyle in a way that meets their individual needs.
