We have a range of options available to you from one-hour body-breaks, to half-day seminar/workshops. The topics are listed below.

To begin with let’s be clear, Health and Wellness is not an abstract notion, it is a bottom-line issue. Job stress is estimated to cost U.S. industry more than $300 billion a year in absenteeism, turnover, diminished productivity and medical, legal and insurance costs. This translates to around 10 billion dollars annually in Canada. (Rosch, 2001).

Your company needs to have an active wellness program mindset for several reasons. With a proper wellness program, your employees will:

  • Experience a longer working life
  • Have more energy
  • Take less sick days
  • Have less injuries
  • Enjoy better morale

In addition to this, studies have shown an increase in production with a proper health and wellness program, and with greater employee retention your company will spend less time and money training new staff.

fact: In 2008, 4.6 million cases of nonfatal work-related injuries or illnesses were reported in the United States. Almost half of these cases required a job transfer, work restrictions or time away from work (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010).

fact: In a National Business Group on Health/Watson Wyatt Survey (2009), employers cited “employee’s poor health habits” and “underuse of preventative services” as the top two challenges to maintaining affordable benefit coverage.

fact: Fifty-two percent of employees say their company does not do enough to promote employee health (Randstad, 2006, p. 36).

If you are planning your next conference, consider adding a health and wellness component to it.  We have a range of options: from a one-hour body-break, to half-day seminar/workshops.
