ROI on promoting Wellness
Wellness in the workplace is a trendy new topic, but for good reason! It turns out that companies are actually getting a pretty sizable return on their investment in wellness programs.

Who wouldn’t want to invest in something with those results?
But there are many other positive results from adding a wellness program to your company. In the same HBR article MD Anderson Cancer Center shared that they’ve seen an 80% decline in lost work days thanks to the inclusion of a workers’ compensation and injury care unit within the employee health and wellness department.
