According to three new peer-reviewed studies released in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, there is growing evidence that the health and well-being of an organization is one component of a high-performing, well-managed organization.
An article in Employee Benefit News notes that "The studies examined the change in stock prices for three portfolios of employers after they won awards for their employee wellness programs or self-scored themselves as having a comprehensive program. In all three cases, award winners and those with high scores outperformed the S&P index, at rates ranging from seven percent to 16% per year."
