Corporate wellness Events 5 Ways Your Workplace Wellness Program Can Empower Your Employees To Make A Difference Posted By: Fran Bishop CEOs of some of the country’s largest companies are scrapping the spreadsheets and foregoing discussions of their wellness program’s ROI. Why? Because unlike the return on your marketing investment or the cost of new products and services, your investment in employee wellness goes far beyond your bottom line. As reported by the Washington Business Journal, when Honest Tea CEO Seth Goldman gifted every single one of his employees with a new bicycle, he wasn’t thinking about how he’d make that money back. Instead, Goldman’s ROI was measured in improved employee perception, better company culture, and an exponential feeling of wellness that expanded from his employees to their families and, ultimately, the community.

The problem was that our client was not seeing a strong ROI for their efforts. Employee engagement was inconsistent.
