The Value of Healthier Employees

Healthy Employees Improve Your Workplace’s Bottom Line

Worksites are where many Louisiana residents spend the majority of their time. Because of this, employers are in the unique position to create a culture of wellness for their staff. By making healthy changes in the workplace, you can make a big impact on your employees’ health. It also benefits your organization because healthy employees are happier, more productive and use fewer sick days. 

By implementing changes to improve the health of your employees through our WellSpot Designation program, organizations are equipped to play a role in positively impacting the health of the community. We support Louisiana employers by providing the resources and tools you need to encourage healthy habits like physical activity, healthy eating, stress management and quitting tobacco.

Michael DiResto, executive vice president at the Baton Rouge Area Chamber, is one of the many workplace professionals in Louisiana who has taken a lead in moving the health of his community forward.
