Any savvy business owner will tell you to analyze the return on investment (ROI) before making a purchasing decision. While it’s in every company’s best interest to evaluate ROI, many products and services, particularly in the employee benefits arena, do not deliver a direct dollar savings. They provide a different kind of value to the organization, best described as a Return on Health (ROH).

The perception of health has become more holistic, with a person’s well-being encompassing their financial, mental, and physical health. When employers consider the whole well-being in their benefit offerings, they’ll experience something more than ROI – a return on health. ROH shows the bigger picture of what happens when benefits improve the overall health and well-being of employees, capturing soft returns like productivity, loyalty and morale.
