This June, we’re celebrating Employee Well-Being Month to introduce more healthy choices and activities into the work week and raise awareness about physical, mental, social, and financial health equity while helping employers and employees transition back to the workplace. Regardless of where your employees work, we believe in supporting the holistic well-being of Every One, Every Day, Every Way.
Adults spend most of their active life working and most of the active part of the day is spent at work. Therefore, there is a close link between work and an individual’s health and wellbeing. Thirty-five percent of all U.S. adults are estimated to have metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a combination of health risks that contribute to heart illness and death such as obesity, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol.
Wellness programs are important to help keep the healthy people healthy and create an atmosphere in which people proactively address any beginning health issues. An effective wellness program educates workers and creates a culture of health, with the aim of initiating a healthy behavioral change in workers.
Employers who implement wellness programs see benefits such as improved workforce productivity and savings on health plan costs. Additionally, wellness programs can foster teamwork and camaraderie for employees through group health activities and challenges.
