How Employee Wellness Can




f
  Promote a Healthy Bottom Line
     or small business owners struggling to just pay
     the bills, starting an employee wellness program
     may not be high on their list of priorities.
          Free gym memberships, yoga classes, time off to achieve work-stress balance ... extravagant
          “perks” to businesses trying to keep their proverbial heads above water ... or are they? New
          research shows that wellness programs can improve the bottom line of a company, no matter
          what the size. Employee wellness programs result in lower costs, greater productivity and higher
          morale. In one of the only long-term studies of its kind, researchers followed the wellness efforts
          of a midwest company over the course of nine years. While the company spent $7.3 million for
          the program, it ultimately saved $12.1 million in medical and pharmacy costs, employee time off,
          and worker’s compensation costs. For many small business owners, those numbers may seem
          crazy, and a wellness program for employees is a luxury they simply cannot afford. Fortunately,
          a provision in the new health-care reform law will make it far more feasible. The legislation
          provides $200 million in grants over five years to small business owners who want to initiate
          wellness programs for their employees. The grants, which begin in 2011, target employers with
          fewer than 100 employees who do not currently have a workplace wellness program. “Wellness
          programs increase worker productivity by reducing absenteeism up to 30%, the overall use of
          health care benefits by 26% and worker’s comp claims by 30%,” says Burton Goldfield, chief
          executive officer of TriNet, a company that provides human resource services to small businesses.
          Wellness programs are instrumental in keeping people on a healthy living path, especially in office
          environments where the employees are sedentary for lengthy portions of the day.

          A comprehensive workplace wellness program ideally consists of three components: Prevention,
          Recognition, and Assistance. These can be implemented using various methods promoting healthy
          eating, fitness, smoking cessation, workplace safety, ergonomic workspaces, first aid and C.P.R.
          training, coaching and counseling, “lunch and learn” sessions, and on-site healthcare. An employee
          interest survey is a good way to start and will be a good indicator of the types of activities in which
          employees want to participate. They may also provide the employer with ideas to get the wellness
          program off the ground.

          Here are some ideas to get started:
          1. Set goals for your program and employees
          2. Learn about your employees needs and wants
          3. Tailor the message to each group as people are in different life stages
          4. Be consistent
          5. Consider incentives
          6. Choose the right medium to get the message out
          7. Create awareness – people can only participate if they know about it
          8. Communicate constantly – sometimes it takes a while for the message to sink in.
Chamber member St. Mary Medical Center has already started a wellness program at the Apple Valley facility.
Besides a committee that meets monthly to develop new ideas to help employees make healthy choices, the efforts
include monthly education sessions ranging from nutrition to healthy cooking on a budget to exercise and stress
reduction, smoking cessation and managing diabetes. St. Mary Medical Center sponsors fresh produce stands close
by that enable employees who can’t get to the weekly High Desert Produce Market located at the college to purchase
fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. Walking clubs have been formed for employees to take 10—20 minute breaks for
exercise and fresh air. St. Mary employees are greatly encouraged to participate in sports and fitness events within
the hospital and community. Internal health promotion clinics allow employees and family members to receive blood,
cholesterol and weight screenings, and help them to set goals to improve their overall health.

The bottom line is this: Physically active employees with access to healthy eating options are more insurable – and
more productive! Numerous studies have reported average cost/benefit ratios of $3.40 in reduced healthcare costs
per dollar spent, and $5.80 in lower absenteeism costs per dollar invested.

The Victorville Chamber of Commerce is holding a Business Builder Workshop on “Workplace Wellness” on January
25, from 8:00 am – noon which will show you how to implement a wellness program at your own business. Please
RSVP by visiting the website at www.vvchamber.com or calling Lisa at 760 245-6506.

Victorville On The Path To A Healthier City

The City of Victorville is forging a path through uncharted waters in its quest to become a healthier city. As part of its
“Healthy City” effort, Victorville has been researching ways to provide incentives to adopt healthier lifestyles to both
small businesses and its own city employees. With an onsite gym already available to employees, the city is pursuing
other avenues to support a healthier choice including an ordinance to provide healthy snack alternatives to the junk
food in vending machines. A “Healthy Victorville” committee
meets monthly at city hall to share ideas on how to improve and implement healthier
lifestyles for the city. The City of Victorville already has many “healthy community” components in place. The
general plan has development guidelines for encouraging the linking of schools, parks and existing paseos to new
residential areas and its new recreational amenities. The city is working to establish a walking/cycling path along the
Mojave River. A walking path already exists at Avalon and Sunset Ridge Parks and a 10-station “Life Trail” system is
at Hook Park. Victorville has joint use agreements with the school districts to make recreation more accessible to the
community and has already made facilities available for the annual High Desert Fitness Challenge.

In June of this year, the city council passed a healthy city resolution and adopted a “Motorized Pathway & Trail Plan.”
This is a citywide bike trail plan, which also includes opportunities for walking/jogging/skating and some equestrian
use. The city was awarded a grant from the state to create the plan and has enlisted the input of local groups, from
bike enthusiasts to St. Mary and Desert Valley Hospitals. The primary idea is to give the citizens of Victorville,
visitors, and workers an alternative, safe method of transportation to promote a healthy lifestyle, while, at the same
time, helping to alleviate some traffic. The plan will connect subdivisions to parks, schools and shopping centers as
well as places of work. The plan has three different types of paths: Class 1 – Exclusive paths for bikes, joggers, etc (no
cars); Class 2 – Restricted right-of-way for bicyclists with cars and bicyclists intermingling; and finally, Class 3 – Shared
routes with bicyclists and cars on the same                   path and street. The implementation of this plan will be
gradual with the Class 3 routes going in as                     public works re-paves streets. As development comes
back into the area, Class 1 routes will                          be implemented. One such path will be from the Oro
Grande Wash to “D” Street, and another,                          the “Mojave River Trail” that will stretch all the way to
The Mall of Victor Valley. The city wants                          to continue to pursue programs and policies that will
encourage the business community to                                   start wellness programs and healthy eating options
for their employees, and continue                                       their effort to become the “Healthy City” leader in
the High Desert.

Annual City of Victorville/Daily Press Children’s Parade Ushers in the Holiday Season with Joy


t
       he streets of Victorville were crowded with
       spectators December 4th for the annual City of
       Victorville and Daily Press Children’s Christmas
Parade. This year’s theme was “Christmas in Toyland.”
With antique cars, marching bands, floats and, of course,
a visit from Santa, it proved to be a crowd-pleasing
event. We’d like to thank the Daily Press, the City of
Victorville and all our volunteers who make this a great
holiday event.
