Employee benefits are always important to job seekers. Companies that offer medical, life, disability insurance and retirement plans are often popular and attract top talent. Besides vacation and sick time, businesses are getting even more competitive with their benefits packages by including workplace wellness programs.

Corporate wellness programs are incentives to the employee. They have been proven to increase satisfaction by encouraging health and wellness, while driving productivity and growth from a more engaged and focused workforce. But, they are also a strategic imperative. Human Resource Managers and Business Owners can decrease worker’s compensation costs caused by injuries or medical problems from unhealthy lifestyle choices by implementing these programs within their companies.

What is Workplace Wellness?

Employee wellness programs include company offerings such as health fairs, nutrition and fitness guidance, smoking cessation incentives, and ergonomic assessments and improvements. A wellness program can be as large as installing an on-site gym for employee use, or as simple as replacing unhealthy vending machines with healthier options. Providing these programs for employees increases retention rates while improving individual health and wellness goals.
