Your small business is a well-oiled machine and each employee is an important part of your entire process. It’s the mission of the GMS Workplace Wellness Program to foster healthier lifestyle choices to reduce health risk factors, improve employee workplace wellness, and maintain a dynamic, active workforce.
Benefits of Wellness Programs for Employers and Employees
Understanding the importance of employee health and wellness programs is the first step to improving the lives of your employees. By implementing a wellness program in the workplace, you can help your employees take better care of themselves, both inside and outside the office.
Employers will also see the benefits of a workplace wellness program, including:
- Lower healthcare premiums
- Incentives through the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
- Reduced employee absenteeism
- Increased employee productivity and morale
Design Your Custom Workplace Wellness Program
GMS will work with you to implement a custom wellness program that is compliant with ACA regulations and designed with your employees’ health and well-being in mind. We’ll provide on-site wellness recommendations and individual sessions with our wellness coordinator to ensure the success of your program. The workplace wellness package features include:
Health Assessments and Screenings
We offer online health risk assessments and on-site health screenings for height, weight, blood pressure, glucose, and total cholesterol, with HDL, LDL, and Triglyceride screening available upon request. Additionally, we offer Biometric body fat scans by Body Metrix®.
Employers can save nearly $6,000 per year for every employee who quits smoking, according to the American Lung Association. To promote a tobacco-free lifestyle for your employees, our smoking cessation program provides step-by-step counseling on the effects of tobacco use and regular on-site and call-in group and individual meetings. We also provide blood pressure checks and other health monitoring.
Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), employees who abuse alcohol or drugs are over three times more likely to be involved in a workplace accident. Our drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs provides counseling and ongoing alcohol and drug testing to keep both your business and employees safe.
Additional Workplace Wellness Activities
Additional activities we offer include fun wellness challenges and discounts on gym memberships. We also offer employee wellness programs for disease management, stress management, and weight management. Along with these workplace wellness activities, you’ll also receive a quarterly review of health claims and the success of your employee wellness program.
