A recent survey found that smaller companies that spend more on wellness programs may experience less turnover and better productivity. The Principal Financial Group survey found that 79% of employees participated in onsite health screenings in 2006, up from 68% the year before. "As employers offer more wellness programs at work, employees will use them," Principal Financial Group director of consumer health Jerry Ripperger said. "It's really a win-win. Healthier employees ultimately lead to a healthier bottom line for employers."
