WORKFORCE: Wellness in the Workplace
July 30, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am$25
Join our moderator and panelists to discuss how companies can encourage wellness in the workplace, what national trends and innovative ideas are occurring in the workplace, and what to avoid when developing a wellness program.
The majority of employers do see a role for themselves in the health of their employees for the following reasons:
- Healthy employees are more productive and have fewer accidents due to not being overweight, tired, out of shape, stressed or lacking sleep.
- Healthy employees experience less absenteeism. Some employers have reduced their absenteeism by 40 percent with a good wellness program.
- Healthy employees have lower health care costs, which can be very expensive for an employer, depending on how much of the cost of health insurance is absorbed by the employer.
- Employers with a good wellness program usually have a good corporate culture which greatly improves their ability to attract and retain the best employees.
