Feb 04, 2022 9:24am

Workplace wellness programs have been in place as an employee benefit for years. These programs encompass biometric screenings, health risk screenings, diet, and weight programs, stress management, and health and lifestyle training to optimize the health and wellbeing of their employees. 

 According to Harvard Business Review (HBR), more than 9 in 10 companies worldwide offer at least one wellness benefit. Another recent report found that 84% of big brands and 50% of smaller companies offer wellness programs to their employees. 

 As the average adult spends one-third of their life working, it is no surprise that lifestyle diseases such as obesity, heart diseases, stroke, and diabetes can significantly impact productivity and absenteeism in the workplace.
