4 Reasons to Implement A Corporate Wellness Program

Corporate wellness programs have become increasingly popular within the past several years. But why? Here we explain some of the benefits and reasoning behind corporate wellness programs.

1. Improve productivity

Implementing an employee wellness program encourages employees to lead healthier lifestyles. With this, healthier employees are more likely to have a higher level of energy and increased concentration. This fosters an environment for more productive employees.

2. Lower company healthcare costs

Organization’s with corporate wellness programs experience overall lower healthcare costs. While employee morale and productivity are hard to quantify, there are other benefits such as decreased sick leave and health insurance premiums that organization’s can track and measure.

3. Boost company loyalty

Increased employee loyalty is another big bonus for those companies with an employee wellness program. This is an intangible benefit that you can’t put a price on. Loyalty among your employees can mean reduced costs for recruitment efforts, training and other costs related to turnover. Happy and engaged employees also promote a more harmonious working environment.

4. Attract the best talent Having a wellness program can give your company a leg up when competing for today’s top candidate’s who are looking for more from a potential employer.
