If you are healthy, you can be productive too.  Time and again research is showing that the rewarding and productive work life can be hampered due to chronic diseases, disability and mental ill health. Health issues can reduce the work hours one can put in and thus, the income generated from it. Thus, it is very important to maintain health to remain productive.

Employers investing in health and wellness initiatives at workplace observe benefits which are broader than the financial gains. Research evidences have suggested that healthy workers are more productive at work compared to unhealthy workers. Employers investing more time in building health oriented workplace yield greater value from their investors.
