Employer Sponsored Wellness Programs

Wellness programs have been a critical part of leading health care benefits provided by employers to establish a culture of health in the workplace. Comprised of many and varied “plug-and-play” modular initiatives, these programs can include health information portals, seminars, health risk assessments, immunizations, on-site fitness facilities, worksite fitness challenges, high risk/disease prevention programming, physical exam/blood draw services, food service programs, smoking cessation tools, incentives, discounts, telephonic coaching, and more. Though typically more comprehensive among the nation’s largest workplaces, even smaller employers offer a la carte wellness initiatives of all shapes and sizes in creative and cost-effective ways.
