One purpose of a worksite wellness program is to create and sustain a work environment that promotes healthy lifestyles and enhances employees’ quality of life. Wellness programs are generally designed to either encourage employees to take preventive measures against the onset of a disease, or to provide employees tools to better manage their existing risks or chronic conditions. All wellness programs, at their core, encourage employees to adopt healthier lifestyles, including improved nutrition. Healthier employees may, in turn, lead to lower healthcare costs and improved productivity.
