Healthy & Happy Employees
Creating a worksite wellness program is a great step toward encouraging healthy habits with employees.
The benefits don’t stop there though: Studies reveal correlations between worksite wellness programs and performance!
But, what’s the best part about wellness?
It can be scaled: From gym memberships to health-oriented email tips to on-site fitness facilities and personal health coaching, programs can be successful with any level of resources.
We know what you many be thinking: How much is this going to cost my business?
Some businesses claim cost is the only barrier to creating a wellness program, but others tout reduction in health costs as a top reason to create and sustain a successful program.
Those businesses with wellness programs? They’re not alone.
Nearly half of the nation’s companies (44%) boast company-sponsored wellness programs, a 14 percent increase from just two years ago1.
