Why Workplace Wellness?

We spend a lot of our lives at work. That’s why it’s imperative for workplaces to prioritize health and well being of their employees. At Active SWV, we make it easy for companies and organizations to prioritize the well-being of their employees by participating in our Workplace Wellness Program.
Active SWV’s Workplace Wellness program provides structure and support for a multi-year approach to increase physical activity and wellness in the workplace, using the CDC Health Scorecard to measure results.
Here are just a few reasons to bring wellness to your workplace:
