Corporate Wellness Case Study: DeVry Reduces Workforce Obesity Costs

March 10, 2015

Your clients' healthcare costs likely continue to rise. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently reported that more than two-thirds of surveyed employers indicated their total healthcare costs increased compared with the previous plan year. DeVry Education Group, like your clients, recognized the serious impact this fact had on its bottom line, and the value of employee health and wellness.

Since partnering with Retrofit in 2012, DeVry employees have experienced significant, sustained weight loss. They're also seeing significant savings. As DeVry's global benefits director stated, "The feedback we received has been outstanding. People that have been trying to lose weight for 20 to 30 years finally had success with Retrofit."
