Workplace Wellness

There are several benefits for an employer and their workforce when overall wellbeing is a focal point in the workplace. When employees perceive that their employer cares about their wellbeing, they are more likely to be engaged and less stressed while at work.

The CDC conducted a study and determined that “employees working for a company with a strong culture of health are three times more likely to actively strive to improve their health.”

Wellness, in turn, is helpful from a business standpoint as well. It can lead to lower health care costs, increased productivity (ex: reducing chances of illness, disability claims or workplace injury) and heightened employee morale. In times when employee retention is challenging, employees will be grateful to work for a company who has a proven commitment to their health.

Workplace wellness and supporting employee wellbeing can include internal policies, procedures, education or programs that promote healthy behavior.
