Workers today tend to be more transient than they were in decades past. Employees used to stay with the same outfit for an entire career, but that is becoming increasingly uncommon. Many employers are looking for ways to attract and retain the best employees and keep them as productive as possible. Because happy and healthy people tend to be the most productive, many employers look for ways to keep their employees as healthy as possible, both mentally and physically. Traditionally this may have included a generous compensation package that provides vacation time, sick time, and comprehensive health insurance.
Currently, employers are increasingly providing corporate wellness programs to improve the holistic health of their employees. The Fitness Loft of Columbus works with many employers to offer corporate health and fitness programs specifically geared to the needs of their workers.
Corporate wellness describes a variety of programs aimed at improving the holistic health of the employees of a business. Corporate wellness programs are generally aimed at reducing stress, improving overall health, and preventing disease and chronic conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Such programs may include screenings, health education, and fitness training opportunities. At the Fitness Loft of Columbus, we can tailor our offerings to the needs of your particular organization. Specific programs we offer include:
