Why Corporate Wellness Programs Are Here to Stay

Improving the health and wellness of your employees will positively affect your bottom line, period. With a growing concern for our healthcare system in Canada, many people are beginning to look at ways to manage their wellbeing from home, and at the office. 

Offering a Corporate Wellness Program will not only encourage health and longevity with your employees, it can also reduce absenteeism, combat workplace stress, and increase workplace productivity. 

According to Rise People, 6/10 of Canadian employees feel like their employers have some responsibility in ensuring their good health. A whopping 91% of employees of workplaces with a wellbeing program feel motivated to do their best!
