We know the impact that poor employee health has a worksite. More than a decade’s worth of data chronicles devastating costs to employers from chronic disease, absenteeism, disability, leaves of absence, lower employee engagement, and higher employee turnover.
WorkWell KS helps employers develop worksite wellness plans that combat these issues and maximize return on investment through a focus on policy and environmental changes at the worksite. We see health as a business strategy. With this unique focus, WorkWell KS has made great strides in improving the health of worksites and employees across Kansas.
Work Well KS will offer work site wellness programs in Pittsburg in August. Please register your work site as soon as possible to ensure your place in the workshop.
