Worksite Wellness Programs Benefit Young Adult Workers
(September 29, 2017)
A common misconception is that companies employing a large proportion of young adults don’t need to establish comprehensive wellness programs because their workforces are already healthy. But adults under 35—and the businesses that employ them—greatly benefit from comprehensive worksite programs designed to maintain and improve employees’ health. That’s important because adults younger than 35 account for more than a quarter of the nation’s workforce. And despite their relatively young age, they face significant health risks. Getting and keeping these younger workers healthy is key to their long-term well-being. Businesses that recruit and hire them benefit as well, in terms of worker productivity and lower medical costs.
