American Heart Association Recommendations on Workplace Wellness

The American Heart Association has released recommendations on workplace wellness programs. The major finding of their advisory panel is that although many employers offer wellness programs, the majority of them are not effective or comprehensive. The AHA states:

“A comprehensive workplace wellness program includes: health education; exercise areas; a supportive environment; integration into other organizational initiatives; employee health and safety programs; and wellness screenings.”

We couldn’t agree with these recommendations more; TRS Wellness provides all of these services (and more) to our clients. 

Our wellness solutions include:

·         Biometric based health screens

·         Nutrition, exercise, smoking cessation, and stress-reduction with “in-person” coaching

·         Behavior modification programs to promote healthy and fulfilling lifestyles

·         Solutions to decrease risk of injury at work and keep workers healthy and productive.

·         ADA and EEOC compliant ergonomic consultations and functional job testing

·         Incentive management consulting

Unlike “cookie-cutter” programs, we personalize our programs to incorporate a company’s culture and mission to help your employees succeed.

The bottom line is that our programs have been carefully developed by healthcare professionals to incorporate the best available health and wellness research with a model that provides employers with cost-effective, applicable, and rewarding solutions. We uniquely develop personalized programs to incorporate your company’s culture by examining and integrating multiple areas of your organization.  Don’t waste your time and money with an ineffective program.
