San Antonio, TX, June 19, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Healthy Employee Learning Program is specifically designed to encourage employees of organizations to improve their health. The program offers ten engaging educational topics that address the full continuum from physical to emotional issues, including how to lose weight, exercise more, eat better, manage stress, quit smoking, lower the risk for heart problems, manage depression, handle anxiety, stop or control alcohol intake, and even manage diabetes.
By improving the overall health of the workforce, a participating organization can save on healthcare costs, reduce absenteeism, and achieve more efficient production. Many estimates show that companies engaged in a health and wellness program can get a three to fifteen dollar return for each dollar spent.
Employees of participating organizations are directed toward one or more courses after taking a short, confidential health survey. The survey recommends topics which will help them improve in specific areas. These educational topics not only teach specific ways to improve health, but also inspire employees to actually make the commitment to change their lifestyle.
TheAcademy.com has brought together a unique team of highly qualified writers. They range from Professors in Health Science and Nursing schools, to experts in a variety of fields of health improvement. “It’s probably the highest qualified group of health improvement experts ever brought together into one program,” says Jay B. Rea, President and CEO.
Mr. Rea continued, “We are very excited to be able to offer organizations this exceptional solution for educating their workforce in becoming healthier, increasing productivity, lowering healthcare costs and thereby improving the company bottom line. We built the program on this simple premise: If employees learn how to become healthier, and are encouraged to do so, they will.”
In addition, the Healthy Employee Learning Program provides participants with the resources and opportunities to lower their risk for disease and disability. This will also bring down healthcare costs. The program meets the requirements of Senate Bill 803, The Healthy Workforce Act of 2009.
