National Summary
In this age of skyrocketing healthcare costs, it isn't surprising that wellness is a topic of discussion at home, in our schools, at all levels of government, and in the workplace. There is evidence that an effective workplace wellness program will result in a healthy return--in terms of decreased absenteeism, increased employee productivity, and reduced healthcare costs. However, in order to realize this return, employers must make sure wellness programs are well-focused and well-executed. In other words, wellness programs must target the health concerns of employees and their families. In addition, employers must communicate with employees before and during implementation of the program to make sure employees are aware of its benefits and that it is being used effectively.
Workplace wellness program offerings may vary, from simple things such as discounts in membership fees at health clubs and in weight loss programs to specific help with managing chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes. As with any workplace program, employers must consider federal and state laws when setting up a workplace wellness program.
