Is Your Business Thriving Or Just Surviving? By Joseph R. Byrd

In today's economy we are seeing new challenges. We are seeing problems that are far worse and even seeing some that we have never seen before. So what can we do? With every problem comes a solution. We've got countless old solutions for the old problems, but what do we do with these new problems?

I'll get to that. But first I want to address the current situation that I see causing the biggest problems. Right now, it appears that many businesses are choosing to simply hang on and ride it out. "Just getting through each day", they say. Well, that is fine if you plan on today being your last day in business. For businesses that plan on being successful, "riding it out" or "just getting through the day" is not enough.

What can your business do to achieve success? What is the difference between the businesses that are struggling and those that are succeeding in the current climate? These successful businesses are still looking to the future. They are planning ahead and focusing on the long-term goals that helped them get here in the first place. If they only focused on today, what would they do tomorrow? Probably just play catch-up from all of the short-sighted mistakes made today (not to mention yesterday and the day before).

Businesses that plan ahead are thriving in all areas. One of the most critical areas these days is health care. By implementing employee health management programs, businesses are able to plan and adjust rather than simply react to rising costs. You guessed it; the businesses planning ahead are thriving, while the businesses stuck in today's tasks are best.

These proactive health solutions have helped companies take control of their spending. These solutions have helped companies grow while they invested in their workforce and avoided many of the crippling costs that are sinking the "survivors". Those that have failed to take a proactive, forward-thinking approach have continued to see rising costs and decreasing workforce productivity, company morale and employee retention. Does that sound like a recipe for success?

Business Health Expert Joe Byrd uses his passion and expertise to bring business and health together. He integrates health education in lifestyle topics such as Stress Management, Weight Management, and Smoking Cessation into businesses in order to accomplish the following:
Improving Employee Health
Decreasing Health Care Spending
Increasing Your Employee Productivity
Improving Employee Satisfaction and Retention
Joe applies his craft in the business world by making health part of business strategy. As he helps companies invest in their employees, together they create healthy and successful cultures.
