We all know what we should do to take better care of ourselves — eat healthier, exercise more, reduce stress (good luck on that last one). Employee wellness programs aim to get workers practicing better self care, but are they actually effective? And in the long run will they save companies, agencies or government entities money on health care benefits and reduced sick days?
If one goal of health care reform is to promote wellness, when and how will implementation of such programs be mandated?
The Kitsap Sun is doing an article on the effectiveness of employee wellness programs. We hope you’ll take part in our online survey. Click here to take survey.
