Missed work means lost productivity. It also means your company is losing money. In fact, absenteeism costs U.S. employers $1,685 per employee each year.
Does it seem as though your employees spend more time out sick than they do in the office?
Studies show that wellness programs provide a good return on investment if properly implemented and engaged by your workers. Wellness programs can improve employee morale, increase job satisfaction, and even reduce the chances of a workplace injury.
Workplace wellness programs are a set of health and protection strategies that encourage the physical and mental well-being of your employees. They help ensure that health is a priority. In return, your workers are able to function at a higher level and be more productive.
