Would you like to increase productivity, boost employee satisfaction and morale, and cut costs associated with turnover, absences and health care? If so, a wellness program may be just what you need!
Wellness programs have evolved from simple subsidies for employee-purchased gym memberships to on-site health care, nutrition events, fitness challenges, education and coaching programs, and health risk assessment and biometrics services.
In this episode, we discuss wellness and safety programs with Terri Dougherty. We talk about the evolution of wellness programs and what some of today's leading programs look like. We discuss the link between wellness and safety, and talk about how integrating wellness and safety can increase employee benefits and bottom-line savings for employers. We wrap up the conversation with some practical suggestions on implementing wellness and safety programs, improving programs already in place, and how to overcome the three main obstacles to winning safety and wellness programs.
