Corporate Fitness & Health (CF&H) is our wellness consulting and services company, operating since 1985. We believe that worksite wellness is more than just adding “another benefit” to your benefits package; it is a process of composing a workplace culture where employee health becomes an investment. A carefully crafted wellness program develops a vision and a purposeful objective of improving a company’s overall health and productivity.
In our 30+ years of experience designing, developing and maintaining wellness programs we have recognized that you can’t just “bring” wellness to an organization. We assist clients in nurturing and cultivating a wellness program from within the organization so that a culture of health can develop. It is critical that CF&H develop a relationship with each client, lay the foundation for program success and develop a multi-year plan for improving your company health and productivity.
According to Harvard researchers’ meta-analysis, properly designed and administered wellness programs have been shown to elicit $3.27 in medical savings for every dollar invested and $2.73 in productivity savings for every dollar invested. It is important to remember there is no magic solution to creating a wellness program. It is a process of evolving a workplace culture where health is an important factor for employees and the organization as a whole.
