Wellness Programs that Work
An effective workplace wellness program is a great way for companies to demonstrate that they value their workforce. In addition, it can help create a more engaged and productive workforce, reduce a company’s overall healthcare costs, and strengthen team spirit among employees.
Wellness is not just about physical wellbeing but also covers mental and emotional health. Programs can incorporate a wide range of activities, from physical fitness sessions, to quit smoking programs, blood pressure testing, and stress management workshops. What you choose to offer will depend on various factors, such as the size of your workforce, the industry you operate in, and the resources your company has to devote to the program.
