A wellness program is a holistic fitness initiative that focuses on healthy nutrition, exercise, stress control, and disease prevention in order to preserve or enhance one’s well-being. Smoking abstinence, weight loss education, exercise competitions, counselling, and a variety of other plans intended to improve an individual’s physical wellbeing are also examples of wellness initiatives.
In the past, health care providers and insurance agencies provided lifestyle plans. Companies, on the other hand, are increasingly developing corporate health services for their workers.
Benefits of a Wellness Program
Employees can improve their fitness and well-being by participating in a workplace wellness initiative, which offers support and introduces interactive opportunities to do so. Healthy workers are less likely to get sick on the job and have lower absenteeism and high productivity rates. As a result, direct risks such as dental benefits and employees’ compensation insurance are reduced for employers. Employee happiness and commitment to the employer will also benefit from workplace fitness initiatives.
