Inclusive Worksite Wellness Guide
Worksite wellness programs have become a key component of our nation’s fight against obesity, chronic disease and the rising cost of health care. There is a great deal of diversity within the workforce and it is important to consider how worksite wellness programs can benefit all employees. Employees with disabilities are often overlooked in the workforce, yet can benefit greatly from worksite wellness programs. This guide provides a comprehensive examination of worksite wellness and offers tips, strategies and resources to ensure that your worksite wellness program is inclusive of people with disabilities. You can use the guide to build an inclusive worksite wellness program from the ground up or, if you already have a program in place, use it to ensure that you are reaching employees with disability in your wellness program.
