'Wellness at Work' programs reduce sick days, increase productivity and slow down the escalating cost of health care.
Employees at Taco Inc. participate in a pre-shift stretching program designed to minimize injuries as part of its "Working Wealthy" health program. Other wellness opportunities you can offer workers are:
- Health screenings: measure cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.
- Implement a walking, exercise or weight-loss program.
- Provide flu shots.
- Form a smoking cessation group.
