Resources helpful in building a workplace wellness and well-being program

Workplace Wellness

A well-rounded employee wellness program can help your employees THRIVE.  ASE has curated resources helpful in establishing or enhancing your workplace wellness program.  The five main components of a well-rounded wellness and well-being program include:

  • Physical
  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Financial
  • Environmental

There are three main types of wellness programs:   

  • Participatory wellness programs, which are generally available without regard to an individual’s health status and do not offer any reward based on satisfying a health-related standard.
  • Activity-only wellness programs, which require an individual to perform or complete a health-related activity to obtain a reward.
  • Outcome-based wellness programs, which require an individual to attain or maintain a specific health outcome in order to obtain a reward.

When part of an employer sponsored group health plan, wellness programs are subject to certain federal requirements

Cancer Costs More Than You Know: Beyond Treatment to Workforce Retention & Productivity

May 19, 2023 

Cancer is now the number one driver of healthcare costs for employers. The costs go beyond simply treating cancer, as employers also need to understand cancer survivorship's impact. In this webinar, you'll discover the reality that you may already experience with cancer survivors reentering the workforce and how HR leaders can be prepared to increase productivity and improve retention with this growing population.

This webinar was presented by ASE’s new partner, Wheelhouse. Wheelhouse partners with employers to impact the cancer journey by improving outcomes, reducing costs, and increasing retention and productivity. With over 20 years in the oncology field, they know firsthand how cancer survivors get lost in the workforce, and they have the tools needed to help them THRIVE.

Reengaging a Disconnected Workforce Through Wellness

June 1, 2023 

What is a disengaged employee? It is much more than we all think. Common characteristics of disengagement include:

  • Withdrawal
  • Poor communication
  • Absenteeism/Tardiness
  • Exhaustion
  • Lack of participation
  • Unhealthy behaviors

The problem we’re facing is finding a solution for it all. The answer is not black & white nor is it quick to solve. However, prioritizing the health & wellness of your employees is not only a good start, but a long-term solution with an ROI!

But why? Remember when you were at your best self physically, mentally, socially, & spiritually as an individual? How were you at your job? How was your relationship with your coworkers in comparison? The answer to these questions is probably the same as how you felt…the BEST!

ASE’s new partner, Workplace Wellness, takes you through case studies on how their custom, holistic, inclusive, & hands-on wellness programs have been successful in the workplace. Moreover, they provide you with ways you can implement this in your organization to improve overall employee engagement for better productivity, motivation, & conflict management.
