Wellness programs are becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. But problem is, a lot of employees don’t know about them. That’s because communication regarding benefits isn’t nearly as strong as it should be, Colonial Life reports.
According to the Society for Human Resource Management, 60 percent of employers offer a wellness program, and another 8 percent of companies plan to offer one within the next 12 months. The growing popularity of wellness programs bodes well for the health of our country’s work force—but only if employees take advantage of them.
