Executive Health and Wellness

Issue

“The Rippe Health Assessment Study of Senior Executives, which was revealed at a past Corporate America Health Summit, found that senior executives have a higher risk of heart disease. Dr. James Rippe, associate professor of cardiology at Tufts University, studied 200 patients, three fourths of which were Fortune 500 executives.

The study revealed that 73 percent of the participants were living a sedentary lifestyle, which can lead to diabetes, heart disease, and many other conditions. To make matters worse, 80 of the 200 patients studied were obese.

The study also revealed that a high number also had elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, and a large waist circumference, thus making their risk for a coronary event even greater. Not mentioned in the study, but relevant to executives, is the overall risk the patient has for metabolic syndrome, or pre-diabetes.

These findings are very similar to what we see within our practice. The executive leads a very different lifestyle than most other employees, which often ends up taking a toll on their health. You can only go so long at full speed before you run out of gas or burn up the engine. Much like a high performance car, executives need to take special care of themselves to maintain high productivity.”

Ever since Industrialization kicked into the eras, An office working routine has become a common “chore” for most men and women of the middle age. Whether they like it or not, they have to go through the 9 – 5 hurdle to get paid at the end of the month in order to keep the bread on the table for themselves and the family.

What they and their employers do not realize is the silent seeping in of the subconscious stress and health issues, which soon start dictating their lives, making these once healthy, innocent, loving, happy go lucky, efficient individuals to start losing their productivity and efficiency at their jobs. They start losing their credibility and reliance e.g. due to:

  • Increased Absenteeism
  • Missing deadlines
  • Mistakes and Blunders
  • Lack of Focus
  • Tardiness
  • Intra-personal difficulties

These are the top rated causes, in terms of employers, for the indifferences met with the employees, many a times, costing the employee his or her job. The Health issues of the employees which become the reason for the former, tend to burden the company in a number of ways e.g.:

  • Increasing healthcare costs (expected to rise another 6.5% in the year 2017).
  • Decreased productivity and output.
  • Increased work stress
  • Increased inter-personal conflicts between co-workers and co-workers – managers etc. and loss of harmony in the work-force.
  • Under-efficiency in completion of tasks.
  • Employees taking more time on average to complete tasks.
