Healthy Living at the Y
The YMCA's Corporate Wellness Program makes it easier than ever for your employees to be active, healthy and more productive.
About the Y
Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It's about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to reach new fitness goals, learning a new hobby or skill, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our family-centered activities. At the Y, it's not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
Benefits of Healthy Employees
Employees are the most valuable assets to any company. Organizations that value and promote a healthy lifestyle have an edge when it comes to attracting and retaining key people. Plus, companies enjoy a variety of additional benefits of healthy employees, including:
Increased Morale, Productivity & Retention
Physical activity improves moods and energy and decreases stress and anxiety. Active employees feel good about themselves and their work.
Decreased Absenteeism & Health Care Costs
An estimated 25-30% of companies’ medical costs per year are spent on employees with excess, often preventable, health risk. Improved wellness reduces employee absenteeism, injury, overall medical claims and healthcare costs.
