Employers have long sought to improve the physical health of their employees as a way to curb rising health care costs and improve productivity. And, as important as physical health is, evidence now points to the importance of a more holistic approach to employee health.
By providing resources that complement the various dimensions of well-being, you can create an environment for employees to design their own path to wellness. This shift towards a more holistic approach to worksite health promotion puts more emphasis on a person’s vitality in life, their sense of purpose, and personal fulfillment.
By helping employees improve their social connectedness, purpose in life, and physical and emotional health, you can also improve the productivity and performance of your employees.
