Top Workplace Fitness Challenge Ideas for 2019

Your employees are making their New Year’s resolutions – why not join them? Employers that build a culture of wellness and offer supportive health resources – such as worksite health programs – play a proactive role in improving employee health and reducing claims costs. These programs provide your workforce with the tools and opportunities to pursue healthier lifestyles in an environment that is motivating, supportive, and fun. At the same time, these programs benefit your organization’s bottom line.
