Why Start a Wellness Program?
Many employers are turning to workplace health promotion programs to help their employees adopt healthier lifestyles and lower their risk of developing costly chronic diseases. This is important since employers in Hawaii bear most of the cost of health care for their employees. Promoting a healthy work environment can also positively impact employee health status, reduce absenteeism, improve productivity and increase morale.
