FOSTER A HEALTHY WORK ENVIRONMENT

The Be Wise Eat Smart Initiative

How Smart Breakrooms can encourage wellness in your workforce:

Establish a mix of healthy snacks and beverages that comply with standards recognized by health organizations as “healthy”.

Incentivize employees to participate in company Wellness programs by offering loyalty points for purchasing ‘healthy’ items which can then be spent to purchase these ‘healthier’ items or applying subsidies to certain items at the kiosk.

Accurate tracking ability to monitor market results of Wellness initiative within the company. Your dedicated Account Manager can provide you with a Health & Wellness to track the progress of the program.

Meet with Wellness consultants and or company Wellness representatives to ensure the market complies with the goals of the company.

Produce company specific marketing material to advertise the initiative to employees.

HEALTHIER EMPLOYEES = MORE PRODUCTIVITY & LESS ABSENTEEISM

Wellness programs have often been viewed as a nice extra, not a strategic imperative. Newer evidence tells a different story:

 

  • Medical costs fall by about $3.27 for every dollar spent on wellness programs.
  • 19% reduction in absenteeism, and a savings of $264 per employee, per year for on-site employee wellness programs.
  • 70% fewer sick days for employees participating in wellness programs than those opting out.
  • 28% reduced sick leave, and 26% reduction in medical costs for workplace wellness programs.
