There’s a lot of buzz in today’s employee benefits world about wellness programs. Using a wellness program is a great way to help your employee population improve their health. They keep your employees healthy, improve your company culture, and create a fun & cooperative work environment.
The Affordable Care Act actually allows for companies to give employees incentives who participate in their wellness programs, and some insurance companies will actually discount your premiums for employees who are participating in the program.
For a wellness program to be successful, employees have to be engaged and the engagement must come from the top down. As a business owner, if you and your executives are not willing to take part and get behind the program, it will not succeed. Employees simply will not take part if they do not see the company’s leadership taking part as well.
