Health and wellness is receiving a lot of attention in today's workplace
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.
Resources to make it easy
Use the Vermont Worksite Wellness Resource, our fact sheets, and links to more information and services to start or grow your worksite wellness program.
If you have any questions or would like assistance with your worksite wellness program, call us at 1-800-464-4343 (toll free within Vermont).
Creating a Healthy Workplace

The Worksite Wellness Resource provides employers with the steps and supporting information to aid in planning, developing, implementing, and evaluating a worksite wellness program.
