Wellness Programs and Employee Support Services
Companies that invest in wellness programs and employee support services not only improve their overall employee morale but also reduce the risk of having a constantly sick, poorly performing staff. At Gallant Risk & Insurance Services, Inc., located in Corona, CA, we take pride in the wellness programs and employee support services we offer. Preventative measures can create safer, healthier work environments.
What Can My Wellness Program Include?
Supporting your employees through employee assistance services or a wellness program can offer benefits such as:
- Alcohol or drug abuse referrals
- Financial and legal advice
- Mental health and financial counseling services
By doing this, you are on an ideal path to help invest in the health and security of your employees so they can create and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
What Do Wellness Programs and Employee Assistance Services Entail?
As most employers know, a happy employee is a better, harder-working employee. Resources for learning about nutrition and diet, physical activities, and ways to manage and lower stress levels are all included in these programs. The primary goal of wellness programs and employee support services is to take proactive measures to significantly lower medical care costs and improve employee quality of life.
In general, employee assistance programs (EAPs) offer access to employee needs, such as counseling and referrals, to obtain help with mental or emotional concerns. Additional benefits of these services can include enhanced employee motivation and fewer risks of employees calling out sick. When your staff feels healthy and appreciated, their performance improves.
How Do I Reduce Risks?
Companies in Corona, Temescal Valley and the surrounding cities can reduce employee risks by promoting healthier lifestyles for their entire team. Finding outlets for stress and learning proper diet and exercise techniques can help reduce illness and, ultimately, provide less expensive benefits packages for employees. Although health benefits packages are still provided, this supplemental program can help reduce health care costs.
How Much Do Wellness Programs and Employee Support Services Cost?
Every company has different needs, concerns and employees, so there is not an exact cost estimate without inputting some details about what you desire from these programs. Wellness programs focus more on education and implementation, while employee assistance services provide access to counselors, advisors and other referrals for employees to get much-needed help. If your business is considering adding one or both of these services to your benefits plan, please schedule an appointment with a team member to discuss your recommended plan and payment.
