For Employers

Workplace Wellness programs help businesses decrease costs associated with staff turnover, absenteeism, and medical claims/benefits usage. Workplaces that support healthy lifestyles and encourage healthy behaviours increase profits in terms of higher staff morale and increased productivity. There is a growing interest in Comprehensive Workplace Wellness Promotion as employers recognize the positive economic impact of healthy employees.

The Workplace Wellness program focuses on corporate wellness by offering services and resources to support a healthy workplace culture.
