North Carolina-based novelty manufacturer Adam & Eve has lowered its employees’ health insurance premiums by 10%. The average savings for each employee: $1,000 a year.
The company attributes the lower premiums to a three-year-old wellness initiative—and a lack of any catastrophic health claims in 2010.
Employees can participate in biometric screenings, individual health assessments, swimming lessons, a smoking cessation program and an annual 5K run/walk. The company also hosts sports competitions.
Since the programs began, levels of body fat in participating employees have dropped by 7.69%. Body weight is down by 4.22%, cholesterol dropped 4.37%; and glucose levels are down 3.30%, says HR Manager Tom Underwood.
