Business Achilles Heel - Why Wellness Matters in Business
Employee health status is critical to organizational performance.
Exploding employee healthcare costs are unsustainable and place businesses at a competitive disadvantage. About $2.6 trillion is spent annually on healthcare in the United States. Businesses absorb much of this cost. In recent years, many businesses have seen annual healthcare costs escalate by over 10% annually. Obesity is a major driver of increased health spending. The annual cost of employee obesity alone for an average company with 1,000 employees is estimated to be $277,000. In addition, studies show that obesity causes workers to be 10% less productive, on average. Productivity losses related to health problems cost U.S. employers, on average, $1,685 per employee per year.

CarnaVita™ is a solution to a problem that is both corporate and personal. At CarnaVita™ we understand that everyone has different wellness needs. We therefore work very hard to deliver a customized experience to each individual. The results are life changing to the individual employee and cumulative to the workforce as a whole.
Many illnesses can be attributed to poor diet, low physical activity and poor lifestyle choices. These are all preventable. Studies show that fully 72% of medical claims are for conditions that are preventable. The simple answer is to keep employees healthy and out of the medical system in the first place. Healthy habits and exercise prevent a range of chronic conditions and diseases.
You have the power to transform the health of your workforce. Forget the passive programs of the past - they don't work. Bring in a solution that engages employees regarding their health is fun and gets employees moving forward and preventing disease.
CarnaVita™ not only improves the health of unhealthy employees but also helps employees maintain a high level of wellness after they reach a stable and maintainable fitness plateau. We keep employees engaged through our fitness community and ongoing points-based system. CarnaVita™ is a lasting solution.
CarnaVita™ provides monthly reports to employers showing key metrics documenting the progress of employees as a group and individually. We also provide real-time reporting to the individual employee enabling them to monitor their own success. In addition, the system can be used to provide individualized performance data to a centralized recipient, which can for example be coupled to a program with an insurance carrier designed to decrease individual health insurance premiums.
A unique aspect of CarnaVita™ is that it directly measures program impact through quantifiable improvements in employee health. CarnaVita™ tracks validating activity, participation and biometric data. This lets you directly observe program performance and impact.
- Members track daily activity with the BodyDash™ activity tracker
- Members use the BodyDash™ display to track key performance data
- Members receive data showing a comprehensive view of all employee participation
- Insurance companies can be integrated in order to reduce individual and collective premiums
EAT.SWEAT.LIVE® - Every day
Every member of CarnaVita™ works with a personal trainer and nutritionist in completing daily workouts and nutrition plans. In addition, every member follows a daily lifestyle plan. The elements of these plans are delivered through a personalized EAT.SWEAT.LIVE® display. This display is an intuitive, interactive platform that pushes members to progress to a higher state of wellness.
CarnaVita™ allows employees to monitor their body's progress as they move up the fitness spectrum towards greater overall fitness. Members can view their progress on a personalized dashboard - the 'BodyDash™' page - which captures easily identifiable and understandable metrics that allow employees to make informed health decisions while seeing tangible evidence of their progress.
Our crack team of dedicated personal trainers and nutritionists evaluate each employee's initial level of wellness using demographic and biometric data supplied by the employee, as well as photographic evidence. We initially place employees on our patented WellnessMap™ at a level reflecting their current state of overall fitness. Employees select their personal trainer and nutritionist from among that specialize in their age, sex, demographic and fitness level. Every member of our staff is a dedicated, certified professional.
CarnaVita™ is a community of people with shared goals of achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They are encouraged and enthusiastic to provide other members with a strong support network. At CarnaVita™ we know that community spirit and peer support are key to long term fitness success. The community aspect engages your workforce and motivates through a competitive spirit and inter-office support.
Members are required to periodically post pictures of themselves to a personal timeline. They can choose to share these pictures with colleagues, or not. This lets members see the changes in their body and in those of their peers. We have found observing improvements in other members is both inspiring and informative. Sharing also allows the successful member to become an example to thousands of others.
We believe fitness should be fun, progress measurable, and that members perform best when they can compare their progress with that of their peers. We achieve this by rewarding members with points whenever they take actions that make them healthier, whether it's completing a daily exercise regime or taking their vitamins. These points play a role in advancement, as does a comprehensive periodic review of each member's progress. The points system allows your company to incentivize your workforce and measure individual's success.
Your employees earn redeemable points for:
- Completing tailored daily workouts;
- Following specific diet-appropriate nutrition plans; and
- Making better lifestyle choices.
