HINGHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) June 01, 2020
Wellness Workdays, a leading provider of award-winning corporate wellness programs, unveiled its “From Surviving to Thriving” program to help employers improve employee well-being during the coronavirus pandemic. The initiative, which focuses on employee engagement, communications and population health management, highlights the future of corporate wellness and the role it will play in ensuring organizational success. A 90-day complimentary trial of Wellness Workdays’ benefits and wellness hub is being offered to US employers as part of the initiative.
“The current pandemic has reinforced the critical need for employers to prioritize employee well-being,” said Debra Wein, CEO of Wellness Workdays. “Data confirms that individuals with chronic health conditions such as hypertension, obesity and diabetes are at greater risk for complications from the coronavirus. Comprehensive wellness programs can help employees improve pre-existing conditions and co-morbidities while helping employers develop a strong and healthy workforce.”
