Why Worksite Wellness

 

Research shows that worksite wellness improves the health of your employees and it improves your bottom line.

 

There's good news amidst the dismal reports about the state of American health and its cost to employers. When you make the commitment to create a culture of wellness in your workplace, you may notice that:

  • Employee productivity rises

  • Absenteeism drops

  • Morale improves

  • Medical costs decrease

  • You become an employer of choice

 

3 Four 50:

What does this mean?  

3 risk factors (tobacco-use, poor diet and physical inactivity) contribute to FOUR chronic diseases (heart disease, type 2 diabetes, lung disease and some cancers) Which, in turn, contribute to more than 50% of all deaths in the world. A “comprehensive” worksite wellness plan will improve the 3 Four 50.

 

How do I implement a wellness program?

You can search the internet for wellness programs and your results will take you days to review. The Thomas County Health Department has been successful in implementing the Foundation of a worksite wellness plan.  Every day we are learning new ideas and initiatives to move forward. We are here to help you get started. Call the health department and we will set a time to come out and visit with you.
