In an age of ever-increasing healthcare costs, the value of a healthy workforce is clear to all employers. However, many companies find challenges in determining the return on investment (ROI) involved with implementing a corporate wellness programs at their onsite health centers.

Employers may believe that covering their workers with a comprehensive benefit plan is like trying to keep warm under a blanket that’s just too small. Pull it up to your chin, and your toes stick out. Tuck it under your feet, and your shoulders get cold. You can keep tugging at the edges, but there’s a limit to how much it can stretch.

We have a national obsession with lists. Maybe it’s our short attention span or the information overload we’re faced with every day: we’re much more likely to click on a “top 10” list than an in-depth article.
Perhaps that’s why businesses are clamoring to show up on lists like “Best Places to Work” and “Most Innovative Companies.”

The list of careers in healthcare covers a broad spectrum of fields, roles, responsibilities, experience, and overall fulfillment.

Congratulations to Marathon Health Regional Director Tim Reynolds for winning the 2016 Vermont Corporate Cup Challenge and State Agency Race!
Tim's time of 16:24 beat out a record 2,765 runners Thursday to take home top prize in the annual 5k race. If you aren’t a runner, ask someone who is about that time. As our CEO Jerry Ford said, "Running one 5:17 mile alone is beyond impressive regardless of age, fitness, or training, while keeping that pace over 3.1 miles in 75 degree heat from a group start, even more impressive."
Tim wasn't the only winner. Marathon Health had a record 48 participants in this year’s Corporate Cup. For the second year in a row, the MH2 female team of Business Intelligence Analyst Erin Fisher, VP of Business Performance Michelle Rosowsky, and Account Manager Kate Boerma took first place out of 103 teams in the women’s category with a combined time of 105:06!
See full results here.
Outstanding examples all around of living the mission. Congrats Marathon Nation!

One of the most common questions of employees with workplace wellness programs is this: “Is my health information private?”

You may have developed a health and wellness program at your organization to help employees maximize their physical health. But does your program have a mental health component?

It can seem like there are more than a few dots to connect when considering how wellness programs actually increase a businesses’ bottom line. An employee who is spending time tracking diet or exercise, taking the stairs more, or paying closer attention to his blood pressure doesn’t seem to translate directly to specific dollars in the bank. However, focusing on total population health for employees does keep people healthier, which increases productivity, raises employee satisfaction, and reduces healthcare costs.
