Wellness programs growing at businessesPosted On Thu, March 15, 2012
A report from WorldatWork showed that more companies are creating or expanding wellness programs for their employees.
More than 95 percent of companies noted they have healthcare plans, while nearly the same percentage said they have wellness programs, according to the report. Close to 80 percent noted their company plans to add more aspects to the current wellness setup. More than three-quarters of those polled noted their employees have experienced increased productivity due to the additions.
"Organizations ought to consider a more rounded and integrated approach to their well-being programs," said Rose Stanley, a WorldatWork certified benefits professional. "One idea is to open up some of these programs, such as financial counseling or diet and nutrition, to extended family. This could potentially provide the support needed to change behavior."
Those who don't have the luxury of these types of health insurance programs at their office, or their options are not up to par, it could be a good idea to look for alternative options. Online health insurance quotes may be the best way to find a good plan.
