Why Provide a Fitbit for Employees?

  1. Investing in your employees well-being will give you a ROI (return on investment).
    Did you know that unscheduled absenteeism in a workplace averages about $3,600 per year for each hourly worker and $2,650 per year for each salaried worker? If your employees are out of shape, they have a chance at being ill or injured over those that are in better health. By providing a Fitbit for your employees, you will help keep them in the office making you money instead of out of the office costing you money!
  2. Utilizing a Fitbit will make your employees more aware of their need for exercise. When people are challenged to something, whether it’s an physical, mental or emotional, people tend to be up for the challenge and if not, they will recognize where they are lacking and be encouraged to continue down the right path. You will cause your employees to have healthy hearts, improved cholesterol and lowered blood pressure.
  3. You will give your employees the gift of improved moods and brain function.
    This is pretty self explanatory – there is no talking someone into wanting this! Did you know that walking can help aid against stress and “workers block”? Stress-free employees are happy employees; and happy employees are productive employees!
