Even in this down economy, workplace wellness programs are on the increase. The advantages are numerous - lower health care costs; increased attendance and improved morale.
Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) are also an inexpensive way to obtain these advantages - and in some cases, spouses and dependents can participate as well.
Wellness programs also increase the attractiveness of an employer. Companies with wellness programs that touch on the physical and emotional needs of staff and their families show the employer's interest in keeping everyone healthy, and keeping them happy.
