$$    Return-On-Investment    $$

In 2001, Aldana et al., did a meta-analysis on the financial impact of health promotion programs and found (averages):
    ~ For every $1 spent on a wellness program, the average
R.O.I. was $3.48 in reduced healthcare costs!
    ~ For every $1 spent, one could expect to see a 
R.O.I. of $5.82 in lower absenteeism cost per employee!!

Need some Real Life examples??
