Harvard researchers found in 2010 that medical costs dropped by about $3.27 for every dollar a company spent on wellness programs. One company offered their 95 employees a company gym, batting cage, pool and basketball court, and they now have virtually no absenteeism or turnover. Another firm traded in their junk food vending machine for more healthy snacks like apples and yogurt. (Fresh Healthy Vending out of San Diego).
