As our company moves forward with our established pro-active approach to maintaining a healthy and productive staff, it was a natural decision to cultivate a Wellness Program in which employees may voluntarily participate to improve their overall Wellness. Whether it is physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, or otherwise, we can all benefit from the guidance and knowledge that a Wellness Program provides.
Changing the culture of our company’s view toward these important facets in a healthy lifestyle is a win/win proposition for both our company and our staff. It enables the physical and financial future wellbeing of both.
