Stress and poor communication are frequently at the root of these common business problems. Workplace Wellness helps organizations meet these issues head-on. Our skilled trainers provide fun, educational team-building workshops that teach employees effective communication and stress management skills. 

Recent studies* indicate that:

  • 94% of employees experience workplace stress. 

  • 33% of workers consider resigning due to frustration from poor communication. 

  • Peer support and positive communication are among the strongest predictors of employee health, well-being and a cohesive work group.

WORKPLACE WELLNESS WORKSHOPS

The purpose of the Workplace Wellness Workshop is to help businesses understand, improve, and maintain the positive feedback system between worker health and total organizational health. All work is based on scientific research and is customized to meet the organization’s unique set of needs, risks, and current level of wellness. 

 

Several companies have used the training as wellness points for health benefit cost reductions.
