The economic improvement arises from lower mortality rates (more people alive and contributing to the economy), reduced absenteeism, and lower presenteeism driven largely by the impact of physical activity on mental health. "This groundbreaking study provides proof of the relationship between physical activity, productivity, mortality and economic growth," said Tal Gilbert, CEO of Vitality USA. "The stakes are enormous for the individual and for our society as a whole. This is why we are leading efforts with Vitality-linked insurers, such as John Hancock, to make 100 million people 20 percent more active by 2025, as part of our global pledge."Since 2015, John Hancock has partnered with Vitality to reward its life insurance holders for healthy behaviors, such as physical activity, mindfulness, improved nutrition and preventive screenings.
