 What are the BOTTOM LINE BENEFITS for Leading Employers who value and provide PROOF so that their employees know they have healthier and safer workplaces?  And how can leading employers estimate or quantify....

 ....the economic, strategic and financial benefits of their efforts to provider healthier and safer benefits?

RecoveryTrek’s innovative CareTrek concept , an EAP enhancement offers many benefits to leading employers of all sizes.  Combined with RecoveryTrek’s PROOF COVID-19 and drug free workplace testing and PROOF Employer Solutions Hub as the foundation of the PROOF assortment of safer healthier workplace solutions and services, CareTrek becomes a very significant employee benefit for employees and their dependents should circumstances require it. The economic and financial benefits are substantial.

The economic and financial benefits are substantial.

For example, let's use a local large employer in the Hampton Roads Region, southeast Virginia.  In most counties, or regions within most states, an employer is very often a City governmental or college education entity with 5,000 employees and their dependents. The City of Norfolk, Virginia might be such an employer.  Based on rigorous and recently published studies by the National Safety Council in collaboration with nonprofit employee benefits consulting organization Shatterproof and NORC, a research arm of the University of Chicago, CareTrek can provide the benefits of enhancing the City of Norfolk’s current EAP benefit while also: improving employee productivity and attendance and promoting improved employee engagement, safety, health and wellbeing. 

Perhaps, one of the greatest benefits to the City of Norfolk is in providing significant savings.  Check out the estimated savings potential in the details of the attached “infographics” if 50% of City of Norfolk employees with mental health/substance abuse issues recovered and re-engaged with their work -$1,160,130!.

Simply download and review the attachments to this blog for evidence of the great benefit leading employers can enjoy!
