Workplace well-being resources & toolkits
Workplace well-being program are focused on promoting healthy habits to improve the overall physical and emotional health of your employees. As health care costs continue to rise, workforce wellness is becoming more necessity - than luxury. Sometimes promoting a healthy lifestyle is as simple as building awareness to existing resources. Once employees know what services and tools are available, they can make good decisions to support their health and well-being.
Getting started with Workplace Wellness
Employees spend much of their time at work, making it a great place to promote healthy habits. As an employer, you can have a positive influence by creating a workplace that fosters and supports well-being. An effective wellness program can facilitate a cultural change that reaps longer-term benefits at your workplace and ultimately impacts your bottom line. We've developed this toolkit to help you identify your organization’s interests and needs, design impactful initiatives, engage your employees and evaluate your workplace wellness program.
