Worksite Wellness Toolkit
Every employer wants healthy and happy employees. Employees who are healthy are more productive, use health insurance appropriately, take less sick time, and feel good about themselves and their work. While the "bottom line" responsibility for taking care of health rests with the employee, the employer can choose to support employee wellness. This can be done by implementing policy changes within the company and starting an on-site wellness program.
YOU, the employer, can create a workplace that encourages a healthy lifestyle and helps employees acquire and maintain healthy habits. This toolkit provides the steps you need to reach these goals.
