Employers must build workplace cultures where participating in healthy activities are positively reinforced. Employers with workplace health management programs save money. Helping employees with the highest costs manage their health more effectively, reduces overall healthcare expenses. And rewarding employees who are already engaged in healthy activities, prevents increased costs.

Workplace health management programs are good for employees—and for the bottom line. By integrating wellness goals into the workplace and giving employees the tools they need to succeed, employers can change their corporate culture for the better; generating positive, sustainable results for individuals and the company.
