Is An Employee Wellness Program Really Worth It?

So now that you've been reading about Wellness at Work all this month from CH, you might be excited about helping initiate an employee wellness program in your company but wondering if it's really worth the time and effort to get it going and KEEP it going...

Here is the short answer: YES.

The longer answer from a company we follow, WellSteps, states there are 7 Major Reasons to institute a program for you and your fellow employees with a focus on Workplace Wellness:

  1. Wellness Programs Improve Employee Health Behaviors

  2. Wellness Programs Reduce Elevated Health Risks

  3. Wellness Programs Reduce Health Care Costs

  4. Wellness Programs Improve Productivity

  5. Wellness Programs Can Decrease Absenteeism

  6. Wellness Programs Can Help Improve Employee Recruitment and Retention

  7. Wellness Programs Build and Help Sustain High Employee Morale

From a business owner's perspective, we asked our own President, Joe Convertino, Jr. why he's such a big advocate for programs like these for employees and their families. "I see the benefits in the wellness programs we implement here and with our client partner programs in the energy and vitality employees display," says Convertino, Jr. "There's an even better team spirit of cooperation, creativity, collaboration... not to mention that absenteeism due to health issues is dramatically lowered when you have Wellness at Work as a focus. There's just no downside!"
