A culture of wellness requires you to make wellness a part of your organization’s mission and encourage healthy habits year round. Every aspect of the office needs to reinforce employee health and wellness so that employees are empowered with the tools to make healthy decisions. According to this Forbes article, a culture of wellness not only leads to healthier employees, but it also helps contribute to a positive mood and happier mentality.
