Celebrating the 6th annual National Employee Wellness Month
National Employee Wellness Month helps business leaders learn how companies successfully engage employees in healthy lifestyles. It showcases how companies can support employees by creating healthy cultures, improving their health and well-being while lowering healthcare costs and driving engagement.
Created in 2009 by Virgin Pulse in partnership with the Strategies to Overcome and Prevent (STOP) Obesity Alliance, National Employee Wellness Month is sponsored by these organizations and the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease and WorldatWork. Held annually in June, 2014 marks its sixth year.
More than 200 organizations and over 50,000 of their employees are supporting the sixth annual National Employee Wellness Month this year. What’s more, employers and their employees shared their viewpoints and insights on workplace wellness. Check out the 2014 survey findings.
This year, National Employee Wellness Month kicks off with a nationwide activity challenge, highlighting the link between physical activity and good health. Thousands of Virgin Pulse members are going toe-to-toe to see who can rack up the most physical activity.
