Workplace wellness programs are designed to assist employees to choose healthier behaviors like being more physically active or cessation of smoking. Campaigns to raise awareness, educational sessions, opportunities to learn new skills, and changes in policy to make it easier for employees to make healthy choices are often included. This approach is taken because the workplace is a good way to reach people, since most adult Americans spend a large portion of their day at work.

Increasingly, it is recognized that the workplace itself has a powerful effect on people’s health. When people are satisfied with their job, they are more productive and tend to be healthier. When employees feel that the environment at work is negative, the may feel stressed. Stress has a potent impact on employee mental and physical health, and in turn, on productivity.

Jancare has identified five components of workplace culture that directly affect employees’ health and the health of the organization overall-credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. The underlying idea, behind the five components of this workplace wellness program, is that Jancare’s leaders genuinely care about the well-being of their employees.

Jancare’s workplace wellness program wants to attract and keep good, positive workers. Jancare has leaders who understand the connection between employee satisfaction and employee health and believe that workplace wellness is a business strategy as well. Jancare’s management practices include making reasonable demands on time and energy, involving employees in decision making, rewarding work well done, openly communicating, and providing schedules and support to balance work and home life.

In today’s competitive hiring market, it has become more important than ever for companies to enhance job satisfaction and ensure that workers enjoy being on the job. Jancare’s workplace wellness program involves several different aspects of health including: the biggest loser contest, instruction in yoga/Pilates, instruction in step-aerobics, instruction in meditation, smoking-cessation courses, and lunch and learn seminars. The workplace wellness program here at Jancare benefits both employers and employees and strives to maintain a strong, positive work environment.
