Worksite Wellness

It makes good business sense to keep employees healthy.  Research has shown that, as employee health risks increase, so does the expense to employers in direct costs (medical, pharmacy) and indirect costs (absenteeism, disability).

  • Because employees spend many of their waking hours on the job, worksites can have an impact on individual health.
  • Policies, on-site activities and the physical design of facilities contribute to worksite culture and support for employee health and wellness.
  • When employers implement workplace health programs, employees’ health and productivity increase.
