Wellness at Work Makes a Difference for Everyone

Business owners know better than anyone else how important a good employee is to the success of their business. Businesses thrive with employees who are productive, healthy, and present when at work.

A worksite that makes it easy to choose healthy is a formula for success! It’s win-win for the business and the employees.

A wellness program at work helps to change the worksite so it is a healthier place to be. When an employee is ready to make positive changes, the place of business is set up to make it easier.

A wellness program at work equips staff to know key changes they can make to live healthier and to work at their best. They also can take these changes home to their families. They then are healthier too.

People who eat better and are more active lower their risk for many health problems. They could have less chance for heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and colon and breast cancers. Better health choices also can help lessen the chance for weight gain and falls. It can support heart health, muscle fitness, bone strength, and mental health.

Healthier staff get more done while at work and miss work less often. That helps a business’s bottom line!

Most worksites have many ways that they can make changes for the better. Here are a few:

  • Offer a fruit or a veggie as an option for meetings.
  • Share a walking route near work that employees can use during even short breaks.
  • Provide resources for dealing with stress in a healthy way.
