Corporate Membership

group-adults-standingAs a leader in the company, most people know that a healthy, happy, and productive workforce is key to their success. Through a Corporate Membership with the Upper Palmetto YMCA, employees can get fit, stay fit, and save money… all while helping their company improve its fiscal health.

Why Should My Company Participate

  • For every dollar spent on programs, employee wellness statistics show a savings of anywhere from $2.30 to $10.10.
  • With only 60% participation, Coca-Cola Co. found that they saved $500 per year per employee with their program.
    According to a 2004 Ipsos-Reid employee wellness statistics study, two of the main preventable causes of employee absences were mental health (anxiety/depression), and stress, both of which can be drastically reduced by regular exercise.
  • Prudential Insurance’s employee wellness statistics show that their benefit cost per employee enrolled in their wellness program is $312, but the same benefit is $574 per non-enrolled employee.
  • Participating in YMCA Corporate Membership can help reduce employees’ risk for these conditions, and help your bottom line.
