Good Health is Good Business.
With increasing healthcare costs, and employees spending upwards of 40 hours a week at work, employer based wellness programs are crucial to improving the health of Genesee County residents. To support the implementation of effective workplace wellness programs, Commit to Fit! has created a free, Employer-Based Comprehensive Wellness Toolkit.
For businesses new to workplace wellness, this Toolkit serves as a step by step guide for successful program implementation; from gaining leadership support, to creating healthy work environments. For established workplace wellness programs, this Toolkit provides you with information on FREE Commit to Fit! programs available for your workplace, and ideas for program expansion. To request a Toolkit contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
