Why Corporate Wellness?

  • With the heavy demands that society places on the typical employee, it is becoming increasingly important for companies to provide programs that promote stress management and physical wellness
  • Successful organizations recognize that providing wellness programs can improve employee health and decrease health risks while reducing costs
  • The rising cost in health insurance, the poor health of Americans and the growing rate of chronic disease has created a need for workplace wellness programs
  • In a study of the nation’s 1,500 large corporations, the Health Research Institute discovered that companies with employee fitness plans cut their total annual health care costs by 27%. Think of what kind of savings that could mean to your company.

Workplace Weight Loss

For some people it’s all about peer support, education and encouragement on their weight loss journey! Glad Health would be happy to set up a group program at your own location if you have five or more interested people. We can make it a weight loss challenge or non-competitive.

Group Programs Include:

  • Customization to your requirements
  • Weekly, biweekly or monthly 1 hour small group education and support sessions on a fixed schedule
  • Sharing of participants’ wins and losses
  • Learning from others’ strategies and experiences
  • Exploring topics relevant to the health of the group population
