SOMC improving lives through corporate wellnessPosted on July 21, 2014
Corporate wellness is a way that employers can help both employees and their families improve their overall health.
Corporate wellness is designed to promote and support healthy behavior in the workplace and home. The corporate wellness programs promote activities in the workplace such as allowing flex time for exercise, providing on-site kitchen and eating areas and offering incentives for participation and more.
The SOMC Healthy Partners corporate program also focuses on healthy habits such as increasing activity, managing chronic conditions, eating healthy and managing emotional health. To help maintain these healthier life choices, SOMC has a dedicated Wellness Specialist that will support and consult employees with their goals.
To test overall health, a corporate wellness program may offer a Health Risk Assessment, lab testings and biometric measurements.
Corporate wellness improves the workplace by making it a more inviting and relaxing environment for the employees. Whether it’s keeping fresh fruit in the cafeteria or installing bike racks, a successful wellness program inspires individuals to make life-altering changes to become healthier.
Through the Community Health and Wellness department, SOMC offers a corporate wellness package to businesses in the community. SOMC partners with employers to help develop, implement and sustain a wellness program that provides a multitude of services such as health screenings, on-site exercise classes, educational offerings and guest lecturers.
