Building Better Health
An employee wellness program can have many benefits for your employees, the most important being healthier, happier lives. By providing wellness programs you help employees to understand their current health status and how to lower their health risks. You also give them the access, opportunity and encouragement they need to actively participate in improving their health.
An employee wellness program can be beneficial for your company as well. Healthier employees tend to have a higher level of satisfaction and lower absenteeism resulting in increased productivity.
Developing the right wellness program and adapting it successfully to bring about the lifestyle changes necessary to improve health can be very challenging.
That's why many organizations turn to Advocate Health Care when they need wellness programs. Advocate has been helping individuals change their lifestyles, and improve and restore their health for decades.
