June is National Employee Wellness Month, an annual initiative that provides business leaders with fresh ideas and proven strategies around prevention and wellness.
National Employee Wellness Month offers a hands-on look at how supportive social communities, like the workplace, can help to improve employee health and productivity, lower healthcare costs, and help organizations create a positive culture of health.
In recognition of National Employee Wellness Month, HR.BLR.com is offering making its employee wellness training presentation, "Wellness And You," free for download in June 2012.
The initiative’s four sponsors—Virgin HealthMiles, the Strategies to Overcome and Prevent (STOP) Obesity Alliance, the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease and WorldatWork—invite organizations to participate in this month-long workplace wellness campaign to help showcase the power of prevention and social connections in creating and fostering a healthy workplace.
U.S.-based companies and organizations can participate in this year’s National Employee Wellness Month by becoming a Proud Supporter of the initiative.
Throughout June, participating companies will promote the benefits of healthy lifestyles, and provide motivation and opportunities for employees to increase their daily physical activity and engage in other healthy lifestyle behaviors.
