A strategic dose of wellness – our newest Bright Paper is your prescription to a healthier organization
The ability to effectively support the health and wellbeing of employees presents a powerful opportunity for organizations to achieve greater success. There is no doubt, organizations that have taken action to build a culture of wellness are reaping great rewards in terms of enhanced productivity, employee engagement and benefits cost containment.
Presented by the Sun Life Wellness Institute, our newest Bright Paper takes a closer look at the results of the 2011 Buffett National Wellness Survey. This Bright Paper builds on the findings of the survey, outlining the strategic components of a robust and successful workplace wellness program, and highlighting five organizations that have successfully taken a strategic approach to wellness.
