YMCA Workplace Wellness

HEALTHY LIVING AT THE Y 

The YMCA's Workplace Wellness Program makes it easier than ever for your employees to be active, healthy and more productive. 

BENEFITS OF HEALTHY EMPLOYEES

Employees are the most valuable assets to any company. Organizations that value and promote a healthy lifestyle have an edge when it comes to attracting and retaining key people. Plus, companies enjoy a variety of additional benefits of healthy employees, including:

Increased Morale, Productivity & Retention

Physical activity improves moods and energy and decreases stress and anxiety. Active employees feel good about themselves and their work.

Decreased Absenteeism & Health Care Costs

An estimated 25-30% of companies’ medical costs per year are spent on employees with excess, often preventable, health risk. Improved wellness reduces employee absenteeism, injury, overall medical claims and healthcare costs.
