June 4, 2014 No comments | Back To Home

Long Island City, NY – To help kick off National Employee Wellness Month this June, Michael C. Fina, a leading provider of global employee recognition and incentive programs, is offering companies tips for linking health and wellness initiatives to employee recognition.

Employee recognition programs can help promote healthier lifestyles and a more productive workplace. This can include rewarding employees with gift cards or reimbursement for gym memberships if they actively participate in initiatives including wellness classes, health screenings, specific exercise regimens, weigh-in challenges, 5K races and more.

“Rewarding employees for making smart choices about their health and well-being is a small investment that can yield big dividends to them and to the organization as a whole,” said Ashley Fina, President of Michael C. Fina. “Not only does it drive healthcare costs down, it leads to a happier and healthier workforce, which means higher engagement, performance, and profitability.”

According to Michael C. Fina, employers can link wellness programs with recognition by offering rewards related to:

- Preventive Health Management – Having annual physicals, getting flu shots and disease screenings;
- Lifestyle Management – Meeting fitness requirements, smoking cessation and/or weight loss; and
- Challenges and Contests – Participating in workplace competitions such as: tracking weight loss, eating habits or steps taken in a day.
