Optimizing Corporate Culture is Critical to the Success of Wellness Programs
Date:12/15/2009

CHICAGO, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Research shows a direct correlation between effective workplace health programs and return on investment as building a culture of health improvement can result in lower costs and improved performance(1). According to a new white paper from The Vitality Group, a provider of incentive-based wellness solutions, the workplace represents an ideal setting for the delivery of health and wellness programs, and building and sustaining a corporate culture of health is a critical component in implementing an effective program.

The publicly available white paper, "Creating a Next-Generation Health and Wellness Program," was developed to assist employers in developing companywide programs to help employees take responsibility for their health and become more effective consumers of healthcare.

"While there are many attempts at wellness programs, those that are successful in improving the health of employees are built on a strong corporate culture, and are measurable and sustainable," said Arthur C. Carlos, CEO of The Vitality Group. "Properly designed incentives are critical to engaging employees to improve their health, and programs such as Vitality(TM) can play a valuable role in supporting employers' efforts toward a healthier workforce."
