Obesity: Taxing Your Employees’ Wellbeing and Healthcare Costs

Classified as a chronic disease, obesity is a silent and costly complication for the wellbeing of many Americans. Likewise, there are direct and indirect costs associated with obesity as it pertains to the workplace, with some of these costs being more apparent than others. As a result, employers have started to introduce comprehensive healthcare solutions using evidence-based national treatment guidelines to provide guidance for their employees and improve outcomes. 

Join Novo Nordisk and the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce for a perspective on weight in the workplace, including solutions for creating a healthy work environment for employees and how wellbeing programs can offset rising healthcare costs.
