Many top companies invest heavily in employee-wellness programs that help workers stay healthy and can reduce corporate health-insurance costs. Most firms with wellness programs discover that having healthier employees translates directly to having a healthier bottom line. Workplace sustainability expert Leigh Stringer explains why corporate wellness programs are good for companies and their employees and tells executives how to plan, organize and implement a wellness program. Some managers may have second thoughts about a few of these suggestions; for instance, letting workers bring their pets to the office might work better for small firms than big corporations. Nonetheless, getAbstract recommends this authoritative guide to leaders studying the pros and cons of creating programs that foster a healthier workplace.
In this summary, you will learn
- What symptoms mark the employee health crisis,
- How wellness programs can improve your employees’ health and well-being, and
- How these programs can also increase corporate profits.
