Well Being Program

What Is It?

Well being in and of itself is hard to define, but Gallup has come up with a great framework for personal well being which includes the following elements: Career, Social, Financial, Physical and Community. For an employee well being program to be truly holistic, it should contain all of these elements.

“Employees with low well-being are the source of immense healthcare costs and lost revenue for your organization. On the contrary, employees with high well-being engage their colleagues and customers, and save your organization thousands of dollars in healthcare costs” (Wellbeing).
