Are the lifestyle choices of your employees hurting your company's bottom line? Have you ever considered how smoking, physical activity, and diet impact your employee's productivity? A number of modifiable health risks are often addressed in workplace wellness programs. These risks can be identified, measured and managed. This session focuses on identifying the impact lifestyle choices have on a company and how worksite wellness programs help improve employee productivity and morale.
