According to a Fidelity Investments study, around 38% of employers offer onsite wellness clinics in 2018 – and that number is projected to grow in 2019.1 Here’s our quick and easy guide on what onsite workplace wellness can look like, why you should consider offering onsite wellness events, and how we can help you get started.
What is onsite wellness?
Onsite wellness can take many forms, including flu clinics, biometric screenings, nutrition counseling, or even gym and medical clinic facilities. The type of onsite services you offer should be tailored to the needs of your employees and other factors such as available space and budget. If you want to help employees stick to their wellness goals, these types of services will reinforce your commitment to your wellness program and give your employees a convenient (and ideally low or no cost) way to participate.
Why should you offer onsite wellness?
Convenience is a major perk! As a working professional, it can be a pain to take time off work to see a doctor. With onsite wellness, employees can get care right in the office during work hours – often subsidized or fully covered by their employer.
Wellness programs can also help your employees be healthier – and more productive. Two top objectives employers have for their wellness programs are improving engagement, as well as reducing absences.2 According to the CDC, the annual flu vaccine effectively reduces the risk of the flu in individuals by around 40-60%.3 Interventions like flu shot clinics can actually help keep your employees healthy, engaged, and in the office.
