What is corporate wellness?
Corporate wellness programs are programs and activities sponsored and paid for by an employer to help promote work-life balance, mental and emotional well-being and create a culture of happy employees. Most Americans will spend over a third of their lives at work. Creating a work culture that supports work-life balance, stress management, both inside and out of the office, is becoming the standard. According to the American Psychological Association, 58% of Americans say that work is a significant source of stress. The responsibility of managing that stress is no longer solely put upon the employee. Employers of all sizes and budgets now understand that helping their employees manage that stress is key to retaining them, increasing productivity, and work satisfaction.
