People have a choice about where they work, how well they perform their duties, and how they impact the people around them. Recent studies show that almost 9 out of 10 workers are considering leaving their jobs. However, you can stop this massive turnover and inspire innovation through employee health and wellness programs that invest in your people, develop dynamic leaders, and foster a people-first culture.
We’ve learned that wellness means different things to different people. Some associate it with being physically healthy, and others understand it to be more of a mindset or environment. In our experience, it’s a mix of all three. Research shows that creating a culture that strengthens employee well-being impacts healthcare costs and improves organizational performance.
Are you worried about the future of your organization? You’re not alone. In fact, 63 percent of CEOs are worried their key leadership doesn’t have the right skill sets to move the organization to the next level. You can feel more secure about the future by investing in your people, developing dynamic leaders, and fostering a people-first culture.
Companies that continue to put more value on doing “more with less” than on supporting their people struggle with high absenteeism rates, attracting and retaining top talent, and establishing a measurable growth model.
However, forward-thinking organizations understand that even though people are the majority of their costs, people are also their most valuable asset.
Take a look below at what top researchers are now finding out about the benefits of shifting priorities back to employee well-being.
what our team has known and been implementing for years—that happy, healthy, and engaged employees are more loyal, more productive, and cost less. In a study by The Healthways Center of Health Research, just a 10% increase in employee well-being was associated with the following (see chart):
Organizations that strive to create stability, increase employee well-being, affect productivity and innovation, and reduce costs must move beyond traditional employee health and wellness programs. To gain this kind of insight and impact, you must create a people-first culture that develops people-minded leaders.
Lower medical costs
Increase in job performance
We know (and research has proven) that wellness is more than just physical health and that employee well-being has a big impact on business outcomes.
Honestly, because most leaders don’t really know where to start. Increasing employee well-being is a complex idea and goes beyond traditional employee health and wellness programs.
Paradigm Health & Wellness is uniquely positioned to help organizations like yours learn how to develop a people-first culture that changes lives, reduces costs, and supports growth and opportunity.
This has been good for our leadership team. It has forced some trust to be built and humanized the relationship among our leaders.

You have provided me (and my coworkers) with valuable insights on how to improve our job performance through personal fitness. Keep going with this endeavor and continue to pass this knowledge onto others. There are people you have yet to meet that are waiting to benefit from your guidance. May the love and enthusiasm you have for helping others impact them in positive ways that you have never imagined. May you encourage others to keep going and show them that they can do it, even when they think it’s impossible.
Now, at work, I know I can do anything that is asked of me. I have the confidence to do what is needed – I didn’t have that before. This training has helped me realize that I am capable of doing more than just what I am assigned to do.
I learned about myself through this training program.
Then, I learned about my colleagues;
I became more mindful about many things I didn’t notice before.
This training has taught me to surround myself with positive people who convey a positive attitude to those who are challenged. This has maximized my potential for the best overall attitude internally and externally in my personal life.

The Paradigm Leadership Program has been a part of Wabash National’s commitment to people and has allowed us to develop the high performance teams we have today. You can’t have a high performance team without developing around the edges of performance, and the Paradigm program teaches leaders how to do just that; to be more present, more resilient and more productive. In addition, we have seen an increased level of openness and trust among the teams, which has led to exceptional results.

My first experience with Paradigm Health & Wellness was through the Leadership Series offered through my employer. Our attendance was mandatory and I was certainly not excited about having to attend. But, then I listened and realized that I had a lot to learn.
Now, at work, I know I can do anything that is asked of me. I have the confidence to do what is needed — I didn’t have that before.
SHIFT is different from every other program I have ever tried — it focuses on a one-to-one approach and helped me to be more positive, lose weight, and get my blood sugar under control. I feel so much better and am more productive at home at at work. I’m happier than I’ve been most of my life.
My SHIFT coach made me feel like I was important. I can’t even tell you what that means. When someone you don’t know can give you that kind of focus, that is remarkable.
Frankly, I was at the end of my rope both emotionally and physically. But, I had always believed I had to be strong, so I did nothing. Going through SHIFT has allowed me to take each situation and handle things as they come up. I no longer allow everything to pile up until I cannot figure out how to dig out from under the mountain.
