Employee Wellness Program
Seventy percent of all health care costs are related to lifestyle. The yearly double digit increase in healthcare has no easy solution, but a more productive, healthier employee as a result of implementing low cost health improvement programs is good for business, good for the community and good for the employee.

Chamber Weight loss and exercise Challenge Three times a year the Wellness Council offers a ten-week exercise and eat right contest to NOACC Chamber members. Following the nationally recognized “Dump Your Plump” rules, local chamber contests use a name they choose, such as Beachwood Bulge Busters, Rocky River Round Off or the Brecksville Wellness Challenge. Obesity is endemic in today’s society. Offering a safe, effective and proven means to increase exercise while losing weight is truly a community-minded activity. The contest is free to the Chambers and their member companies.
Quitline Nicotine Replacement Therapy Smoking Cessation Program
Smoking is the number one leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States. Smokers on average cost employers $3000 more in direct medical and indirect lost productivity cost each year. NOACC Chambers can take advantage of a partnership with the Ohio Department of Health to promote the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line, 800-QUIT-NOW, and receive nicotine replacement therapy patches.
Through the efforts of the Wellness Council of Northeast Ohio, NOACC is the first Chamber Association in the Country to offer the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line. Click here for more information.
