Employee Wellness in the Workplace

Employee Wellness in the WorkplacePoor employee wellness costs employers! High absenteeism, poor morale, low productivity and high turnover rates are just some of the negative outcomes that are attributed to poor employee wellness. Employers are being hit harder and harder with the resulting costs in terms of increasing disability, WCB premiums and prescription drug costs. Despite these challenges, major improvements are possible.

In this program, you will learn how to develop a culture of wellness in the workplace, and create an organizational wellness program. You will also learn how to set goals for your organization, so that improvement in wellness is achieved and measured. As a result, employees can become far healthier, have better morale and productivity, and have less need for medications. Generally, for every dollar invested in a wellness program, companies see a three-fold return on their investment. Learn how you can make a powerful improvement in your employees’ lives, and your bottom line.
