2. Wellness In the Community
In a world that seems to get faster and faster employees rarely find the
time to give their health and wellbeing the focus it deserves. Unsupported,
the workforce can often struggle to maintain optimum health as they
juggle the commitments of modern life.
Predictably, and without positive action, poor health leads to a decline in
the performance of any organization at many levels.
In 2006, 175 million working days were lost through sickness absence in
the UK – 3.3% of total working time – costing the economy £13.4bn, or
£537 per employee.

24. Will This Concept Work For You?
Customer Club/Class Concept
• Over the last few years the club concept has been a driving force
in Mexico and South America. Other countries have successfully
adjusted the model and also created amazing results.
• As we looked for a platform we could implement in the UK and
Ireland we started to observe the weight loss classes run by other
companies and started to realise that with a little fine tuning this
format would be perfect!
• The customer club/class concept is already hugely successful in
the Uk and Ireland and has proven itself to be an excellent social
platform to teach and train on everything Herbalife stands for!
