Employee Wellness ProgramsWe offer customization employee wellness programs to businesses in Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg and surrounding areas because, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 50 percent of employers’ health care costs and productivity losses are related to their employees’ lifestyle choices. And according to the Wellness Council of America, a $1 investment in workplace wellness programs saves $3 in healthcare costs.

Many employees may have the best of intentions, but it often takes something more than awareness to get people to change. It takes a cultural shift. Plan design alone will not change behavior for the long run. Consumerism is a journey that takes time, patience, and perseverance with the goal of long-term trend mitigation and healthy, productive employees. Whether you prefer the “carrot” or the “stick,” it’s important to develop a plan to motivate employees to change behavior.

Through employee wellness programs, we provide educational classes, tools and resources to individuals and families but also to groups of all sizes (workplaces, schools, churches, gyms, etc…) in the Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg area. So, if you are an employer or a Wellness Coordinator in HR and are looking to offer initiatives for your employees, you have come to the right place.

Corporate Wellness Mission

Help maximize employee productivity, decrease absenteeism, and increase levels of job satisfaction while reducing health care costs and work comp claims by providing customized, inspiring, on-site work wellness programs and services that lead to an overall positive cultural shift within the workplace for happier employees and a healthier bottom line.

What Makes Our Employee Wellness Programs Different?

Our seventeen years of experience has taught us that when it comes to wellness in the workplace, no two companies are alike and that it is important not to offer cutter-cookie initiatives that may not quite fit our clients’ exact needs. Our St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay employee wellness programs are customized, fun, and promote active participation, lifelong behavior changes, accountability, support and success. If you choose to, aggregate data can also be collected and reported to you, so that you can measure the effectiveness of your investment.

We take a total, integrated approach to help workplaces reduce health care costs, as well as improve employee productivity and morale. We offer a broad array of lunch n’ learns, classes, programs and services focused on lifestyle behavior change, awareness, and knowledge, as well as creating supportive environments. The goal is to promote healthier living by implementing an effective behavior change to help prevent the development or escalation of risk factors into more costly chronic or acute illness, which helps to reduce health care costs and increase productivity and revenue.

Our employee wellness program approach is two-fold: 1) we help our clients fulfill their mission, goals and needs while staying within their budget; 2) we help provide our clients’ employees with the education, information, tools and resources they need to achieve their highest health potential. To accomplish these goals, we sit down with you to learn what the company leadership wants, but also help you survey your employees so that we learn about their interests. The success of any workplace wellness program depends on employees’ participation. Thus, getting them engaged in the process of choosing the topics that will become part of your initiatives is the first key to their involvement. These preliminary steps allow us to tailor our employee wellness program(s) to you and your staff, which ensures maximized results for higher return on your investment.

What’s In It For You?
