Welcome to the first Wellness Wednesday of 2012!
We hope that partners and friends will join us in the Twitter conversation today – all we’re asking is that you include the hashtag #WellnessWED in your tweets and we can join together in building a critical mass of information to educate people about the value of corporate wellness.
We are all aware of annual surveys like Canada’s Top 100 Employers and The Great Place to Work, but like any company in the wellness industry we still encounter a lack of understanding about the benefits of wellness programs among many top executives. We hope that Wellness Wednesday can be another step forward in promoting the value of employee wellness programs, until it becomes accepted as conventional wisdom that they reduce absenteeism and insurance claims, improve productivity and morale, contribute positively to the lives of workers everywhere, and generally improve long-term growth and profitability for businesses.
Join us in the conversation today, and every Wednesday from here on out! All day long our Twitter feed will be full of stats and links to great articles. We will also have some new posts on our blog, so be sure to check back in as the day goes on.
Happy New Year and enjoy Wellness Wednesday!
