Why Workplace Wellness Programs?
Workplace wellness programs are an investment in your company's most important resource, your workers. Studies have shown that workers are more likely to be on the job and performing well when they are feeling well both physically and mentally. Workers are also more likely to be attracted to, remain with, and appreciate a employer that values them. Workplace wellness initiatives improve company productivity by:
- Attracting superior quality staff
- Reducing the rate of absenteeism and time lost
- Enhancing on-the-job time utilization and decision making
- Improving worker morale, which in turn lowers turnover
Workplace wellness programs have also been shown to be an effective tools in slowing the growth of health care costs. The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce encourages you to learn more about our Healthy Business Bloomington Initiative and all the ways a worksite wellness program might help your business.
Bill C Brown Associates has been fortunate to be part of this community for over 50 years. As an active member of the Bloomington Chamber Health Care Team, it was important to me that our agency earn the Health Business Bloomington designation. Ensuring a work environment that supports the overall wellness of our valued agents and staff is important to me. The application process was thorough, but not overwhelming. The process allowed our wellness team to evaluate what was working as well as serve as a catalyst for continued improvement.
"We are proud of the designation and of the Bloomington Chamber!"
