Mishumo’s existence is based on two simple facts:
- Healthy employees are more productive than chronically ill employees.
- It costs less to prevent injuries than to treat them after they occur.
By helping employees change their behavior patterns and choose more healthy lifestyles, Mishumo will lower company’s health care expenditures, while raising worker productivity. Health care expenditures will decrease due to reduced medical insurance premiums, reduced absenteeism, reduced turnover rates, reduced worker’s compensation claims, reduced tardiness and shorter hospital stays.
