WELLNESS PROGRAMS-MORE THAN JUST YOGA!
Wellness Your Way
Wellness and reward programs are created to promote a healthy lifestyle and more productive workforce. More and more employers are willing to give wellness programs a try because research shows they can not only improve employee physical health but lessen overall stress. Some businesses go all in, while others offer wellness perks on a smaller scale. What’s important is that you’re thinking about employee health and recognizing the role wellness can play among your workforce and your bottom line.
Employee Work/Life Balance Assistance
There really is no wrong or right way to do a wellness program, and that's a good thing. Wellness should be tailored and made relevant to your employees. Many wellness plans offer preventative services like bio metric screenings, smoking cessation, physical activity and health education.
Some wellness programs not only focus on the physical aspect, but are meant to help alleviate the stress of every day life. Wellness Programs can offer assistance with daily needs and provide customized referrals - saving employees and their household members time, effort, and stress.
