Over 80 million Americans are looking for resources to avoid problem, pain, and to help find health and wellness every year. The motivation for this search has been increased cost to businesses in insurance premiums and increases in loss of productivity of employees. To counter this trend, many chiropractic offices offer Corporate Wellness Programs. The goal of these Corporate Wellness Programs is to support the health and well being of employees in the workplace. The benefits of Corporate Wellness Programs include: happy and more productive employees, lower health care costs, lower rates of absenteeism and fewer worker compensation claims. In addition, these programs can also reduce stress, increase employee job satisfaction, increase employee morale and aid in employee recruitment and retention. Many companies view these programs as an investment in their most valuable asset there, employees. An increasing number of employers offer these programs to employees. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 54 percent of full-time public sector employees and 28 percent of private sector employees had access to a wellness program in 2008.Since there are so many wellness programs to choose from, we suggest creating a survey to identify interest and motivation of employees.Employees will gain knowledge and have one to one interaction with health care providers. Employees will have the opportunity to increase their health awareness and be able to detect early signs of problems that can be prevented before they become a major concern. Then assess your workplace for opportunities for on-site screenings and exercise classes. Lastly, tabulate and analyze the data and find wellness programs based on the results from the survey.Some companies use incentives for their Corporate Wellness program. These incentives motivate employees to want to join in. Some incentives can include paid days off work, discounts on insurance, bonuses, money and more.
