Michael Rouse | How to implement a wellness program

When companies wonder about the value of an employee wellness program, they often get buried in the questions: how much will it cost, what about results, and is there a real return on investment?

Associate Professor Michael Rouse discusses the return on investment of employee wellness programs, research he has developed in partnership with Sun Life, in an interview with Your Workplace magazine.

“One factor many companies overlook is the cost of paying someone when they are not at work,” comments Rouse. “Look at real costs when factoring ROI. You may directly pay an employee $30 an hour, however, when everything is factored in, they are probably worth $40 to $100 an hour.”
