How to Lead a Health and Wellness Program for Your Company


Understand the benefits of having a wellness program and how to create one that is appropriate for your organization.

Designing and managing an employee wellness program is an important step in improving the health and productivity of employees and potentially improving the overall cost of employer-provided health care. Wellness programs can benefit employers by lowering health care costs, reducing absenteeism, achieving higher employee productivity, reducing workers' compensation and disability-related costs, reducing injuries, and improving employee morale and loyalty. What can HR do? Human resource professionals can and should play a key role in designing and managing workplace wellness programs. HR's responsibilities with respect to wellness programs may include advocating for the establishment of such programs to achieve strategic objectives, assessing wellness program options, designing and implementing various types of wellness programs, enlisting the help of experts when and where needed, communicating to employees about the organization's wellness program components to encourage and increase participation in such programs, evaluating the effectiveness of workplace wellness programs, monitoring changes in the law and in the global employment environment relative to wellness programs, and making recommendations for and implementing improvements in wellness programs.
