wellness in the workplace
matters more than ever.

To foster healthier communities, businesses are taking a holistic approach – understanding the interconnection between the community, their employees, and health outcomes, and forward-thinking companies are leading the way with innovative concepts for health and wellness cultures.

 

Whether through external community health initiatives, or internal employees wellness programs, organizations are galvanizing ideas and resources to create strategies that promote community well-being to optimize the work ecosystem.

it pays to invest
in corporate wellness.

US Healthcare spending reached $3.65 trillion in 2018 and 80% of Americans report that they are stressed at work. Poor health conditions can lead to poor company performance, and your proactive approach is vital. On average, for every $1 spent on health and fitness programs, corporations save up to $3 in healthcare costs. Fitness and mental health programs also add value by increasing employee health and morale, and improve mental stamina, mood and focus. Further, strategic wellness programs empower employees, provide a positive work-life balance and help them gain confidence. What’s your wellness strategy?
