Corporate Wellness Program
Today’s successful organizations recognize that in order to maintain a productive workforce and to manage escalating healthcare costs, it is imperative that they design and implement corporate wellness strategies that can help those who are healthy to stay healthy and to help those with risk factors or diagnosed conditions to improve.
Wellness Is A Lifelong Journey
At Horizon Services, we believe that overall wellness is a lifelong journey toward optimal health. This means treating the whole person, including their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The path to wellness is different for everyone, but it starts with getting team members engaged in their own well-being. Our key goal is to address the health needs of team members, effectively change unhealthy behaviors and promote wellness. We feel that incorporating a Wellness Program allows our team members to become smarter consumers of healthcare and feel empowered to take charge of their personal health.
