Health Concerns of Business Executives

Everyone knows that CEOs and business executives are often seen enjoying the most luxurious items and services in the world. But does that all come at a price? Yes, it does. What people do not think about as often are the demands of the job.

Demands of the Job

Some of the biggest stressors and health concerns of being in an executive position are:​​​1 

Constant Travel

The constant travelling can lead to stress, exhaustion, a weakened immune system, and an inability to remain active and maintain a good sleep routine.

Grueling Schedule

A grueling work schedule leaves little to no time for self-care, taking care of one’s health, adequate sleep, time for exercise, and more.

Poor Work-Life Balance

A lack of work-life balance can put strain on family relationships, friendships, and more. This can lead to mental health problems and or substance abuse issues.

Common Conditions to Watch For

Chronic Diseases

The stresses of the job can lead to chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and hormone imbalances. The Rippe Health Assessment Study of Senior Executives reveals that senior executives have a higher risk of heart disease than other employees.​​​2  Out of 200 executives that were studied by Dr. James Rippe at Tufts University, 73% were living a sedentary lifestyle which can lead to diabetes, heart disease, and other health conditions.​​​2 

Obesity

80 of the 200 studied executives were also identified as obese with many of the 200 patients having elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, and a large waist circumference.​​​2 
According to Mayo Clinic Data, 73% of CEOs live a sedentary lifestyle and 40% of CEOs are obese.​​​3 

Executive Health Affects Your Bottom Line

If you remember Steve Jobs being diagnosed with cancer in the early 2000s, you might remember that he didn’t tell his employees, shareholders, or the public about his medical troubles until after he had received treatment. The lack of transparency caused a dip in consumer confidence in Apple. Consumers, as well as employees and shareholders, want to know that the leadership of a company is mentally and physically healthy enough to be making decisions.
A healthy executive makes a healthy company, and when an executive begins to have health problems, these can negatively impact their company. When an executive ignores their health, they are more likely to run into significant health problems that might prohibit them from continuing to work.

Protect the Value of Your Company

These are some of the reasons that the health status of your executive may hurt a company’s bottom line:

Stock prices may go down due to a lack of consumer confidence in the leadership of your company if the executive is known to be unwell

If an executive is no longer able to work, the company will incur significant costs when paying out severance

The costs of replacing an executive can be very high. From interviewing potential new candidates to buying your new executive out of their contract to paying for relocation costs and offering new candidates attractive perks and benefits, replacing an executive is no easy feat

Replacing an executive means that the company will likely undergo re-structuring or re-organization that will typically be associated with costs. Many successful companies’ branding and image are strongly linked to the senior leadership team (think Jeff Bezos at Amazon, Steve Jobs at Apple or Bill Gates at Microsoft). Without a strong leader, a company may struggle to maintain a successful image

Why is Executive Health a Smart Investment?

For many business executives that don’t take care of themselves and their health, they eventually face burnout or health issues that impede them from continuing to do their jobs to the best of their ability. The reality is, being an executive involves a lot of pressure, stress, travel, and a lack of sleep. To avoid the problems associated with your executive experiencing health issues, investing in health is paramount to maintaining a successful company.
Keeping leadership healthy, both physically and mentally allows for a positive work environment, loyalty within the company, better creativity, innovation, and productivity.​​​4  A healthy work environment will attract and retain top talent, reduce turnover, and help you to find the right business executive who can commit to the company and see through its long-term growth.

Investing in Health Saves Money

All of these factors will save your business money in the long term. Our Executive Health Diagnostic Evaluation Program will save you money by ensuring complete health, and continued success at your company. An executive health program ensures that executives are receiving regular physicals, maintaining their health and well-being, and determining risk factors to prevent health problems down the line.
Research conducted by the University of Michigan’s Management Research Center found that annual executive physicals resulted in 20% fewer health claims and 45% fewer workdays lost per executive.​​​4  Taking the time and money to make sure that your executive is healthy will benefit your company in the long run. The investment will allow them to invest the efforts back into the company.
