Health and wellness is receiving a lot of attention in today's workplace

Healthy Vermonters 2020A well-constructed and well-run wellness program can reduce costs and improve employee health and morale. Here in Vermont, more and more work sites are instituting these programs.

By providing support and tools such as the Worksite Wellness Resource, we are an active partner in helping Vermont employers make their wellness efforts a success.

Helping everyone's bottom line

Worksite wellness programs benefit the entire organization. In addition to helping improve the health of employees, successful worksites reap the benefits of lower health care costs, greater productivity, less absenteeism, stronger employee morale and retention, and larger hiring pools.
