Worksite Wellness

Worksite Wellness

Many businesses are improving employee health and reducing costs associated with health care and absenteeism through offering a Worksite Wellness program at their site. Research shows that the financial benefits of implementing a Worksite Wellness program outweigh the initial investment. Companies have seen employees engage in more physical activity, have better knowledge of disease management (diabetes and asthma), have better eating habits, and smoke less than they did before the program was implemented.*
