Workplace Wellness Programs

What is Workplace Wellness?

Workplace Wellness is defined by Harvard Business Review as, “…an organized, employer-sponsored program that is designed to support employees (and, sometimes, their families) as they adopt and sustain behaviors that reduce health risks, improve quality of life, enhance personal effectiveness, and benefit the organization’s bottom line”.

In other words, Workplace Wellness is all about helping your employees and their families to live healthier, happier lives.
