Wellness programs in the workplace are a win for everyone involved! Employees benefit from customized counseling that they might not be able to afford on their own where they are exposed to what can be “life changing” information. Camaraderie tends to grow as waistlines shrink, creating a more solid team and a fun work environment. Healthy employees also mean more productive companies, making this type of support a great business investment!
A national survey exploring the experiences, attitudes, and opinions of human resource professionals regarding worksite wellness was conducted in 2012 by The States of Wellness. Their findings prove that the investment is worth it. “Employers overwhelmingly agree that work site wellness initiatives help workers develop healthier lifestyles (96 percent), increase productivity (84 percent), lower healthcare costs (84 percent), and reduce absenteeism (78 percent).”

- Tangible education, both one on one and in a group setting, concerning the risks of negative habits and the keys to wellness
