What are Wellness Services?
Wellness programs are intended to improve and promote health and fitness, and are often offered through the workplace. Common wellness services include programs to help employees stop smoking, diabetes management programs, weight loss programs, and preventative health screenings.
Who Benefits from Wellness Programs and Services?
Both the employees and the employer benefit from the programs. Studies show that modest investments in workplace wellness programs result in significant savings to the employer by reducing medical costs and absenteeism.
