In this age of computers, more and more jobs keep us chained to a desk all day. This doesn't do much for our overall wellness, physical or mental. The good news is that many workplaces are learning that happy, healthy employees are more productive and cost them less.
The Wellness Councils of America (WELCOA) work together with corporations to build "Well Workplaces," a type of corporate wellness program. By implementing a Well Workplace program, companies are showing that they care about the wellness of their employees. These initiatives teach employees how to make more positive lifestyle choices, like designing a wellness program that focuses on proper diet, yearly health screenings and regular exercise. A Well Workplace is healthy not only for the employees, but also for the company's bottom line.
