HR Health & Safety FAQ

What are the benefits of adopting a workplace wellness program?

There are many ways a workplace wellness program can help improve employee health – and cut costs for your business. Healthier employees have fewer absences and higher productivity. (And, they’re less likely to commit the workplace sin of “presenteeism”: coming to work ill, where they’re unable to get much done beyond infecting their coworkers.) Employees whose employers promote health and fitness are more likely to be satisfied in their jobs. And, the cost of health insurance is significantly less for healthy employees.
