Program elements are customized to employer objectives with targeted features focused on employee health and wellness. These programs can be fresh start-ups or tailored to enhance current wellness programs.

Getting Your Program Started

Take these steps to initiate a wellness program for your workplace:

  • Designate a Wellness Team.
  • Incorporate a representative from all departments/areas.
  • Determine wellness budget, based on a dollar amount per employee or a designated total.
  • Monthly meetings are helpful to keep interest and build a strong program.
