A 2006 report titled "Are They Really Ready To Work?" shows that the most critical emerging area of concern for employers in regards to new employees is "making appropriate choices concerning health and wellness." Over three-quarters of the respondents rated stress reduction, work-life effectiveness, and other wellness issues as an emerging content area that will be "most critical" for future graduates entering the workforce.
A Robert Wood Foundation study indicated that 67% of health care costs are caused by preventable illnesses. In addition, stress, work-life imbalance, and other symptoms of unhealthy work environments have been shown to contribute to rising health care costs and lower productivity. In addition to EAP, the Health Promotion Services department offers a comprehensive holistic approach to wellness, including: Preventive Care Services, Employee Assistance Programs and Organizational Effectiveness.
