Worksite Wellness

Worksite Wellness

For much of the week, most Vermonters spend more than one third of their day at their workplace. The programs, policies and environment at their worksite significantly influence employees' health. With support and resources from the Health Department, worksites can take steps to improve employee health, leading to financial benefits, reduced health care costs, and a more productive and engaged workforce.

These occupations have been selected because of their unique environments and job demands, which makes it challenging to implement “traditional” worksite wellness strategies.
