Wellness Programs Benefits for Small Businesses

You don't need an expensive wellness plan to develop a healthier workforce.

Think about what's in your breakroom: bagels, donuts, chips, and sodas?

How about fresh fruit and other low-fat snacks?

The American Heart Association offers a free walking program for employers.

What are the benefits?
  • increased employee morale
  • lower absenteeism and
  • potentially reduced health-care costs
Find out what your employees would like - if you deliver on their needs, the benefits will ultimately be both yours and theirs.
