Worksite Wellness Matters

Bottom line: Healthy employees are good for business.

Your employees are your greatest asset. They know the ins and outs of your business and keep it running smoothly.

That’s why keeping your employees healthy is so important. Offering health insurance is a vital tool for the health of your employees, but health is about so much more than what happens at the doctor’s office. Good eating and physical activity choices are critical to good health and wellbeing!

The fact is, your employees spend approximately 36% or 1/3 of their waking hours at work. The worksite is a great place to reach employees about developing healthy habits. Worksites offering a supportive environment that facilitates good health and healthy choices are making a positive impact on their bottom line.
